It appears Jason Garrett’s job is safe with the Cowboys

This morning, FOX’s Jay Glazer reported that Jason Garrett is likely to remain the Cowboys’ head coach into 2013:

Glazer Garrett

I guess Sean Peyton made it clear to Jerry Jones that he should stop calling him a dozen times per day.

OK, seriously though, Garrett has done a good job in Dallas this year, despite a slew of questionable end of half time managements decisions.  The team has suffered an abnormal number of serious injuries to their defense, they’ve overcome some major off the field adversity (as noted by Glazer above), Tony Romo is playing great, and Dez Bryant seems to have finally woken up.  The Cowboys have managed to hang around all season, and now find themselves controlling their own destiny for the NFC East title.

A revolving door coaching carousel is not ideal in the NFL.  The Cowboys haven’t had a coach stay in place for more than 5 years since Tom Landry was shown the door in the late 80′s, and that is part of the reason why they only half 1 playoff win in the last decade and a half.

    Jason Garrett’s job was never in jeopardy at any point this season. SHame on you for succumbing to the baseless media hype.

    While you clearly have a point about the issues with a coaching carousel, this is an awful example. Why not say more than 4 years, say post-Jimmy rather than post-Landry, and then you would only have 1 rather than 3 SB titles undermining your point?

    1. I don’t think it undermines the point at all. The fact that Jerry Jones let Jimmy Johnson get away despite winning 3 SBs only strengthens the point.
