Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed that HC Jason Garrett will enter the final year his contract with an extension.
“We have been there before without a contract,” Jones said, via the Star-Telegram. “He trusts me. I do trust him or he we wouldn’t be the head coach to begin with. Our business is made too much of when you look at extensions and non extensions.”
When asked about the situation, Garrett declined to comment on the matter.
“I don’t spend a lot of time on the business of football,” Garrett said. “I spend time trying to build a team we all can be proud of.”
