    What’s the Future Hold for Soon-to-be Ex Cowboys HC Jason Garrett?

    Jason Garrett's time as of the looks to have run its course. There may be three regular-season games left on the Cowboys and quite possibly a playoff game, but after that Garrett should find himself unemployed in the not-too-distant future. It's an ending that has been a long time coming for a lot of , but still sad nonetheless.

    There was hope that Jason Garrett would become the next for the Dallas Cowboys and and help solidify the head position for years to come. But like Landry, all things come to an end eventually. Now the Cowboys have to wipe the slate clean in order to find their next head coach. But, that's not what I want to talk about today. Today, I want to take a look at what the future might hold for Jason Garrett.

    The Dallas Cowboys have been such a big part of Jason Garrett's life it's naturally going to be hard for him to move on. It's easy to forget he's spent the better part of two decades, nearly half his lifetime, as a member of the Cowboys in one way or another. As a player (1993-1999) he was part of that 90s Dynasty, earning him two Super Bowl rings.  As a coach (2007-present) the results haven't been as kind.

    Other than being named the of the Year (2007) and NFL (2016), accolades and awards have alluded Jason Garrett during his coaching career in Dallas. He has a slightly above average career coaching record 85-69 (.552), including his 2-3 postseason record. sadly, it's not quite the outcome we had all hoped from Garrett.

    With the NFL being a “what have you done for me lately?” kind profession for both players and coaches, I have a hard time believing Jason Garrett jumping right back into another head-coaching job in the league. has said Garrett will be coaching in 2020, but he doesn't really say in what capacity.

    Jason Garrett's initial claim to fame was as an for the (2005-2006) before taking over the same role with the Dallas Cowboys in 2007. I think becoming an OC for some team around the league is much more likely, but even those jobs are difficult to come by. So where does he go from there?

    I'm fairly certain many of you will disagree with me, but I believe Jason Garrett would make an excellent head coach at the collegiate level. I believe his personality and coaching style would fit in nicely for some college program across the country. Who knows? Maybe he will follow in the footsteps of Nick Sabin, who also had a hard time as a head coach in the NFL.

    I'm sure most college coaches find the whole recruiting and dealing with boosters tedious/tiresome, but I think that is something Jason Garrett would excel at. Whatever his shortcomings might've been as a head coach with the Dallas Cowboys, his personality and character were never in question. It's those two traits, plus his detailed oriented nature, that could turn him into a really good college coach.

    That's my two cents for what it's worth. Take it or leave it.

    What do you think the future holds for Jason Garrett?

    I think you may bee right about his coaching career being better in college. I think his best talents are as GM though. I think there are many crappy teams out there that would benefit immediately with him as their GM. Id be OK with him being the Cowboys GM. Seriously, who else would Jones trust as much as Jason? It would move Jones a bit farther from the direct management of the team which is most likely a good thing at this point but still give him a very strong presence

    JN Bryan

    He needs to go—-far away from the organization. He’s a nice guy, etc etc…but, he hasn’t produced….that’s all. I wish I’d have been given 10 yrs to figure it out… But, I wasn’t…

    lawrence stacy

    Again someone who does not understand football. The comment about him being a GM is true. He is a great talent scout and can build a great team with top talent and the right kind of people. He just is not an x and o guy.

    JN Bryan

    Are you saying I don’t understand football? Well, I may not have been a GM in the NFL, but I know organizations—and, I know that you don’t recycle “damaged goods” around the org, just because you think he’s a good fit. The players don’t respect him…so, what makes you think he’s going to get respect from other teams and other coaches? If they don’t have it, he’ll be a lame duck the day he walks in as a GM..or any other capacity. Sometimes, the best thing is to “clear the decks”, and move on w/a total fresh start….

    John Tricarico

    I couldn’t agree with you more Brian. I like JG, I think he has certainly brought the Boys up, somewhat. Ive been watching them since 1974, always on Thanksgiving day, my fav! Then really started watching them with Dorsette, DWhite, R White, then Aikman, Emmett my all time favorite, but I would like to see JG land some place good. College….ehh, not so sure about that, but really never thought about it until you brought it up. I think there are NFL teams out there that could really grow with JG’s experience, lets face it, there isn’t another hot seat out there quite like the one in BIG D??? Can I get an Amen!!!! He would already be ahead of the “game” anywhere else. Great article though, good to see others with descent morals, enjoy the holidays, CIAO

    K Sass

    3 paragraph 9 line….it’s two Super Bowls not to Super Bowls

    JN Bryan

    Good catch, Sass. The spellin’ and Kuntry Grammer in nearly every article online, today, is atrocious! Seems most print journalists…..if they’re actually trained….are more concerned about quick turns, and very little (to no) fact-checking. They’re in such a hurry to ‘produce’—–kind of like Garrett should be—that they don’t see the errors in their stories. JB

    JN Bryan

    Look, Red Top has had 10 yrs to figure it out—-he has NOT done that! Jerry Jones is unable to see the forest…much less the trees these days! The players have quit on the field….they’ve quit on each other…and, they’ve quit on Garrett. When you lose the respect of your ‘team’, it’s time to go. He’d be better off at that college level—maybe Princeton or Harvard.

    As for Jerry, his best bet is to give control to a real hard-chargin’ coach…whether it’s Urban Meyer, Riley, Mike McCarthy or Titanic Ron Riviera———if he brings in a ‘suit’ like Garrett, he will continue w/the results he’s gotten the last 10 yrs……..and, he’ll die w/o another Super Bowl. Being from Dallas originally, I’m embarrassed for my hometown————-wish the fans would show Jerry who’s in charge and NOT go to the games. That’s the only way Mr. Jones changes his approach…..

    Keith Schoose

    Given that Jason Garrett is incompetent, I hope he lands with the New York Giants.

    The Dallas Cowboys going head to head twice a year against his clock mismanagement, overly conservative play calling and decision making process as well his fealty to veterans at the expense developing talented rookies can only be viewed as a plus for the Cowboys.

    The only downside to firing Garrett is the fact it should have happened 5 years ago.

    JN Bryan

    Amen to that! We’ve wasted a ton of talent and treasure on building JerryWorld, etc….oh, don’t forget his 300+ ‘ yacht. And, literally nothing to show for it….. Garrett isn’t coaching Harvard or Yale—-he’s coaching the “Artiste Formerly Known as America’s Team”—and, is now a joke of the NFL.

    Lorne

    Jason Garrett WAS NOT the OC for the Miami Dolphins. He was merely a quaterbacks coach – for a year. He was totally unqualified to be OC when Dallas hired him. He failed, got the HC fired. Dallas promoted him. He failed again.
