Less than 48 hours after the Dallas Cowboys’ improbable playoff run came to an end in Green Bay, the team has locked up head coach Jason Garrett, who was set to become a free agent.
According to Todd Archer of ESPN Dallas, Garrett agreed to a five-year deal on Tuesday.
Garrett came to Dallas in 2007 in the role of offensive coordinator and was promoted to interim head coach after Wade Phillips was fired midway through the 2010 season. After having the interim tag removed following that season, Garrett took the Cowboys to three consecutive 8-8 seasons before finally breaking through in 2014, with a 12-4 regular season record and the team’s first division championship since 2009.
In addition to the new deal for Garrett, according to ESPN’s Adam Caplan, Rod Marinelli has agreed to a three-year deal to remain the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator.
