Jerry Jones: Jason Garrett will return as Cowboys coach next season

Sunday January 3rd, 2016

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Sunday head coach Jason Garrett will return next season. 

The Cowboys finished this season 4–12 after a 34–23 loss to the Washington Redskins in Week 17. Dallas started off the year 2–0, but struggled after an injury to quarterback Tony Romo.

Dallas went 3–1 in games started by Romo, but could only win once with Matt Cassel, Brandon Weeden and Kellen Moore filling in for the Cowboys’ injured star. 

Garrett was hired as Dallas’ full-time coach after an eight-game interim stint in 2010. Garrett was 5–3 as interim coach, then went 8–8 in his next three seasons. Garrett made the playoffs for the first time last year, when the Cowboys won 12 games but lost in the divisional round of the playoffs.

In his career as head coach, Garrett has compiled a record of 45–43.
