Not that this should come as any surprise, following three 8-8 seasons, but Jerry Jones isn’t about to hand head coach Jason Garrett a contract extension.
Since becoming the full-time head coach in 2011, Garrett has gone 24-24--he went 5-3 after taking over for Wade Phillips in 2010--and has never made the playoffs.
“Well if I said that, I’d be giving him a contract and that’s not how we’re operating here,” Jones said, per ESPN Dallas. “I have in no way shut that door, but I have already decided that we were going to operate this year with his contract status the way that it is.”
Jones wouldn’t close the door on discussing Garrett’s contract during this season.
“I’m just saying as we sit here right now and as we enter the season, then I thought it was in the best interest of the team for us to keep the status of the coaches’ contracts the way that they generally are across the board,” Jones said. “And I haven’t changed that from the way you started training camp.”
