Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said Jason Garrett is not coaching for his job here in 2014. Not only do Las Vegas oddsmakers not buy Jones’s stated allegiance to his head coach, they don’t think Garrett will make it very far this season.
To wit: Garrett is the favorite to be the first NFL coach to be fired in 2014, according to the lines released by Bovada on Tuesday, via OddsShark.com. At 2-1, Garrett beats out the Oakland Raiders’ Dennis Allen (4-1), the Miami Dolphins’ Joe Philbin (7-1) and the Buffalo Bills’ Doug Marrone (8-1) as the best candidate to be canned first.
In three full seasons as Cowboys head coach, Garrett is 24-24 and has never been to the playoffs. He took over midway through the 2010 season after his predecessor Wade Phillips was fired and went 5-3.
