The Jason Garrett era in Dallas is officially over.
On Sunday afternoon Fox Sports’ NFL insider Jay Glazer broke the news that the team had finally informed Jason Garrett he was out as head coach.
The Cowboys have now made it official and have released a statement announcing Jason Garrett will not return as head coach.
“We are extremely grateful to Jason Garrett for his more than 20 years of service to the Dallas Cowboys as a player, assistant coach and head coach,” Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said in a statement. “His level of commitment, character and dedication to this organization has been outstanding at every stage of his career. … His tenure of leadership will be characterized by his ability to produce teams that always played with great effort, emotion and passion, and he represented our organization with great pride, loyalty and respect.”
“Jason Garrett’s legacy with the Dallas Cowboys will always be that of someone who strived for greatness every day that he walked through the door, and as someone who instilled the virtues of enthusiasm, hard work and appreciation for the profession in all of the men who played with him and for him,” Jones said. “He is, and always will remain, a cherished member of the Dallas Cowboys family, and his contributions to the organization are greatly appreciated.”
Now it’s time to start to speculate who the next head coach of the Cowboys will be.
