Apparently, Jerry Jones is content to wait until after the season to revisit Jason Garrett’s contract status.
In fact, in an interview with 105.3-FM The Fan this week, Jones said that he hasn’t even been thinking about Garrett’s contract status. Garrett’s four-year deal runs out at year’s end.
“It’s really a non event for me, whether there is concern [from the outside] about it or not,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I don’t mean to sound that way, but it hasn’t been a concern of mine and we haven’t made it a concern for the club this year. This talk about these contracts, no matter who it is that has a pending contract or one that’s coming up, that’s all for [media and fans] to talk about. That really has no impact on my day.”
Garrett has finished 8-8 in each of his three full seasons as a head coach to this point, and has come up just short of the playoffs in each of those. With a 7-3 record this season, Jones has been full of praise for Garrett, saying he is still improving as a head coach.
We’ll have to wait and see if this praise will translate to a new deal for Garrett.
