The Dallas Cowboys informed Jason Garrett on Sunday afternoon they are moving on from him as the team’s head coach, as first reported by Jay Glazer of Fox Sports.
Garrett’s contract with the Cowboys officially expires on Jan. 14. The news that Dallas would be moving on from Garrett was well known as they have even interviewed Marvin Lewis and Mike McCarthy for the job.
According to Glazer, the split was always sensitive for Jerry Jones because of his relationship with Garrett.
Garrett was the backup quarterback for the Cowboys and later the team’s offensive coordinator. He replaced Wade Phillips as the team’s interim head coach during the 2010 season. In 2011, he was promoted as the team’s full-time head coach.
Dallas hasn’t had a full coaching search since 2007 before they hired Wade Phillips.
Garrett went 85-67 with the Cowboys but only won two playoff games and never advanced beyond the divisional round.
