With his Dallas Cowboys at 6-5 heading into Thanksgiving Day against the Buffalo Bills, Garrett’s seat could get hotter here soon.
In talking about that, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and executive vice president Stephen Jones reportedly won’t move on from Garrett during the season.
The older Jones has always pushed back against mid-season firings. With his Cowboys still in first place, that makes a lot of sense. Let’s see how the season plays out before drawing a final conclusion.
A separate report earlier on Thursday indicated that barring a deep run in the playoffs, Garrett will not be back in Dallas. One potential candidate has emerged if there’s a coaching change.
Garrett boasts a 83-64 record in nine-plus seasons as the Cowboys’ head coach. He has yet to lead the team beyond the NFC Divisional Playoffs during that span.
