Ian Rapoport of NFL Media mentions that while there was talk of Cowboys HC Jason Garrett being on the hot seat during the season, he never really got the sense that Garrett was actually in danger of losing his job.
Rapoport explains that the Dallas has invested a lot in Garrett and believe he is their head coach of the future.
According to Rapoport, the Cowboys are planning to open extension talks with Garrett after the season. Rapoport says this deal is expected to be a lucrative contract when all is said and done.
Mike Garafolo says the deal is expected to be worth much more than the $6 million he’s been paid under his current deal.
Garrett, 52, began his NFL coaching career with the Dolphins back in 2005 as their quarterbacks coach. After two years in Miami, the Cowboys hired him as their offensive coordinator and he eventually worked his way up to head coach.
Over the course of his eight years in charge of the Cowboys, Garrett has led the team to a record of 70-58 (54.7 percent), which includes three playoff appearances.
