Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones mum on Jason Garrett’s future beyond 2019 NFL season
Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett appears to have the hottest seat among all head coaches right now in the NFL. That same seat just got closer to boiling point temperatures Thursday night following the Cowboys’ 26-15 loss at home to Josh Allen and the Buffalo Bills. But for the man who signs Garrett’s paychecks, he’d rather wait further for things to unfold before deciding on the head coach’s fate, per Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network.
#Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, on if Jason Garrett will be back in 2020: “This is not the time.” He added that he still believes this team can make a run.

Jones hasn’t been succinct with what he thinks of Garrett or how he feels about the man tasked to steer the Cowboys. Jones is known to have a long leash when it comes to pieces mostly blamed for Dallas’ malaise. Tony Romo, despite very minimal success in the playoffs, was let to quarterback Dallas for several years. Jones is showing the same patience in Garrett, who continues to catch the ire of frustrated football fans.
The Cowboys have now lost their last two games, including their 13-9 loss in Foxboro to the New England Patriots in Week 12. If anything, the Cowboys still control their destiny. A loss this coming Sunday by the Philadelphia Eagles would mean that Dallas and Philly will have a tie atop the NFC East standings with identical 6-6 records.
Dallas will look to recover in Week 14 against the Chicago Bears at Soldier Field.
