The Dallas Cowboys have been busy with coaching changes throughout the offseason, with multiple changes shaking up the structure of the coaching staff for the 2019 season. The offseason has now claimed its biggest victim, in what will be a delayed firing of sorts.
According to Todd Archer, Cowboys HC Jason Garrett will not be offered a contract extension at the end of the 2019 season. The understanding is that Jerry Jones will look for potential replacements throughout the season.
Jerry Jones is not expected to extend the contract of Cowboys’ HC Jason Garrett, short or long term, as he now enters the final year of his contract, per @toddarcher.

Jones called in to 105.3 The Fan in Dallas to clarify that the delayed announcements of Jon Kitna as quarterbacks coach and Kellen Moore to offensive coordinator were not a reflection on the status of the head coach position. Jones went on to clarify that Garrett’s job was safe for the upcoming season, however, these reports seem to suggest otherwise.
Garrett has a solid record with the Cowboys, going 77-59 in 9 seasons at the helm of the Cowboys regime. He lead the Cowboys to their second NFC East Championship in the last 3 years in 2018 before bowing out in the second round of the playoffs to the Los Angeles Rams.
Fans have been calling for coaching changes throughout the last few seasons, and it would seem now that Jones has listened. The expectation is that unless Dallas goes to the Super Bowl next season, Jason Garrett will not be with the organization after 2019.
