Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett will head into the 2019 season as a lame duck in the Big D.
According to this report from ESPN’s Todd Archer, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not going to extend Garrett’s contract this offseason.
This means the highly embattled head coach will pretty much be in for a do-or-die 2019 season with the Cowboys.
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.

Dallas’ head coach since all the way back in 2010, Garrett has come under fire in recent seasons due to a lack of playoff success. While the Cowboys did defeat Seattle in this year’s NFC Wildcard Playoffs, the team has posted only two postseason wins under Garrett.
This piece of information comes after the Cowboys announced that they’ve promoted 29-year-old Kellen Moore from quarterbacks coach to offensive coordinator. Moore is expected to be the Cowboys’ primary play-caller this coming season.
Could Moore ultimately replace Garrett down the line? It’s certainly a reasonable question to ask.
