IRVING (105.3 THE FAN) — Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasted no time Sunday, in the aftermath of Green Bay 26, Dallas 21, to address the elephant in the room … or, more accurately, the elephants just down the hall in Lambeau Field.
“I know it’s certainly one of the orders of the day, beginning right this minute,” Jones said of head coach Jason Garrett’s expiring contract. “We’re through playing. That’s usually when that steps up and gets at the top of your list.”
While some observers see Garrett moving into the offseason as “risky,’’ the Cowboys simply see it as part of a business model that has always been in place.
In the cases of Bill Parcells, Wade Phillips and Garrett before, the Cowboys provided their head coaches extensions never during, bur rather, following, the ends of seasons.
In that sense, this circumstance is nothing unique, and I’m told the Joneses will now move quickly to work with Garrett’s agent David Dunn on a new five-year deal that pays the coach in excess of $5 million annually.
That, as Garrett himself would say, is “Line 1.”
