Report: Cowboys expected to part ways with Garrett soon, no other role with team
The Jason Garrett execution is taking forever.
Once he finishes, sources said he ’ s again scheduled to meet with the Jones family. Does this long goodbye suggest Garrett might actually return as the Garrett and Jones met with the team as they do at the end of every season. Garrett touched on the final game before sending the players into the

In the building ambiguity of Jason Garrett’s future with the, one more oddity is being added to an opaque picture as Garrett finishes “exit” interviews with players: Those familiar with some of the meetings say Garrett is operating like he’s going to be a part of the organization moving forward.
According to multiple sources familiar with a handful of Garrett’s exit interviews, he conducted himself in the same manner as past seasons — thanking players for their contributions in 2019 and then talking about their offseason outlook. Several sources added that in some cases where players had expiring contracts, Garrett went as far as expressing that the Cowboys would have interest in the players returning in 2020.
Report: Cowboys players and coaches have not been informed of any changes at head coach
Despite reports that Jason Garrett is out, things seem normal at the Star.pite r
Now, he ’ s talking like it, too. The longtime HC addressed Cowboys players and assistant coaches on Monday as the organization gathered on what’s commonly known as Garbage Per NFL Network’s Jane Slater, Garrett spoke as if he ’ s been pink-slipped, even though a formal call was not yet reached.
He ’ s reportedly meeting again with owner Jerry Jones to discuss something. By keeping Garrett under contract until that coaching search is over, Jones is preventing him from talking to a division foe or to anyone else who might be looking for a new coach (the Browns and the Panthers are the others
“The interview confused [the player],” one source said. “[He] went in thinking it was going to be a goodbye and maybe he’d hear a ‘this is a business’ speech and it turned out to be more of a ‘good job’ and ‘see you later’ feeling. It’s normal to the point of being weird, given everything [he] was expecting.”
Added another source familiar with the exit interviews: “Jason is so myopic. I think he’s just doing his job like everything is normal because his contract hasn’t expired yet. He’s still under contract so he’s still doing his job like he normally would.”
Not all of the Cowboys’ players have chosen to meet with Garrett for exit interviews. Sources have told Yahoo Sports that a handful of veterans left town without sitting down with the coach. But the status quo in at least some exit interviews appears to be just another extension of a situation that has seen Garrett meet with ownership multiple times since the season ended without a clear sign of Garrett’s fate. His head coaching contract is set to expire on Jan. 14 and Dallas has yet to reach out to a single outside candidate for an official interview.
Report: Members of Cowboys organization wonder whether Jason Garrett will be back
As the Cowboys continue to meet with coach Jason Garrett four full days after his departure was presumed to be a done deal, other members of the organization are wondering what the deal is. Ed Werder of ESPN.com reports that “people inside the building have begun to wonder if Garrett is going to have a [more]
“By and through him being a player here, by and through what he ’ s been as a coach, what he ’ s been as a working associate. He ’ s just got a great place for me, and that’s if he ’ s coaching 10 more years for the Jones believes Garrett will get another job somewhere — New York Football Giants, anyone?
And if the Cowboys were considering keeping Garrett as the head coach, it would be smart to leak the Like him or not, he does have a lot of NFL experience from being a player , position coach corefittexas nailed it about Garrett . I think he ’ s going to be back as Cowboys head coach but if he ’ s
Sources inside the organization have consistently expressed a lack of any defined decision or even an indication of what could happen next with Garrett. One source, who spoke with Yahoo Sports on Monday, suggested that the team had interest in a handful of potential head coaching candidates in the college ranks, but said there was no guidance on when or if any of those interviews would take place. He added thatoffensive coordinator Greg Roman also had some interest within the Dallas organization, but a source with the Ravens said on Tuesday that there had been no call from the Cowboys about Roman.
That lack of movement with any outside candidates, combined with Garrett continuing to show up for work with Dallas, has created an odd void that is drawing speculation from all corners. It has also fueled a perception that Cowboys ownership is attempting to craft some kind of scenario that would keep Garrett in the fold moving forward, either as head coach or potentially moving to some other part of the franchise. Dallas hasn’t given a solid indication of either outcome, with Jerry Jones and son Stephen failing to speak since the end of the season — and even cancelling their normal radio appearances.
Report: Garrett still lobbying to continue as Cowboys' coach
Despite being told he won't be retained, Jason Garrett continues to ask the Dallas Cowboys to consider his head coaching candidacy, reports FOX Sports' Jay Glazer. The Cowboys have reportedly interviewed Mike McCarthy, formerly of the Green Bay Packers, and Marvin Lewis, the Cincinnati Bengals' former head coach, as they seek Garrett's replacement. Dallas still hasn't officially fired Garrett, whose contract expires on Jan. 14.

Jones noted he has no timetable to make a decision on Garrett , and he wasn't bluffing, but also because the logistics of it all doesn't call for the Cowboys to put a boot to Garrett ' s bottom.

The vacuum and unprecedented lack of leaks in the situation has left fans, media and even other NFL sources to come to varying conclusions, most driven down one of two tracks.
Taken down the first track, the pause in Garrett’s status can be perceived through a lens of speculative logic, which would suggest that ownership has a head coaching candidate in mind who is simply not available for interviews at this point — thereby removing any need to push Garrett out the door before his contract expiration. Such a candidate would likely be involved in wild card playoff games in the NFL and off the grid until at least next week. That would give Dallas the time to continue assessing Garrett’s status while waiting for an interview window with other candidates to open.
However, that doesn’t account for the availability of some college coaches like Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley or Baylor’s Matt Rhule, whom Dallas could seek for interviews immediately now that they aren’t part of college bowl or playoff games. That reality is especially glaring for Rhule, who is already on the radar of the Carolina Panthers and New York Giants, while having turned down an interview opportunity from the Cleveland Browns.
It would be a 'surprise' if Jason Garrett isn't Giants' next OC?
Having only been a special teams coordinator and wide receivers coach in his career, new Giants HC Judge needs experience on his staff. At the very least, Garrett would provide that. Garrett, 53, coached in Dallas for 13 seasons. He began as the offensive coordinator before transitioning to head coach in replacing Wade Phillips back in 2010.The Princeton grad was a Giants backup from 2000 to '03 after spending the previous seven seasons backing up Troy Aikman in Dallas.
Then he won coach of the year and now he doesnt have a contract. I do not want him involved with any coaching whatsoever. if a new HC is coming in then it needs to be his message and not a combination of his and Garrets and the Jones’ s . Trying to find Garrett a job within the organization…
Jason Garrett ' s contract expires Jan. 14. The Cowboys are not expected to give him a new one. David Moore of the Dallas Morning News reports Wednesday that the sides will not meet today to Nobody with a strong NFL track record will take the job because they know Jerry will call all the shots
And the second track? That one is more about the evidence that is playing out in front of our eyes, which suggests that, taken at face value, Garrett is still in play to return as head coach (or in some other capacity) for the Cowboys. That evidence includes the reality that Garrett could have been dismissed immediately but wasn’t. It includes sources who say that he has done exit interviews with players as he normally would, including looking toward the 2020 season. And it includes the fact that Dallas has been tied to no “above board” interviews of candidates, nor have there been the types of leaks that usually define an obvious next candidate. While Ron Rivera was quickly tied to and eventually landed the Washington Redskins job, there has been no such “hot” candidate that has arisen for Dallas. Nor has there even been a strong No. 1 target, like Rhule with the Giants or the trio of Mike McCarthy, Josh McDaniels and Kevin Stefanski in Cleveland. Even Carolina has shored up an interview list.
That activity elsewhere has left the Cowboys on an island and increasingly looking more and more odd by the day, a theme that will only intensify if this lasts to the very conclusion of Garrett’s deal on Jan. 14. If that’s the case, Dallas will not only have missed out on multiple candidates, but it will likely see all the other jobs filled before it does its first interview.

That is, unless Garrett is going about his job because he’s the actual No. 1 candidate in Dallas. And the interview everyone is waiting for is actually happening right now, every day, when Garrett keeps showing up for work.
