Jason Garrett ‘well aware’ Jerry Jones will likely relieve him from his Cowboys’ head coaching duties

Jason Garrett, Cowboys

To no one’s surprise, Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is “well aware” that the club will likely relieve him from his duties as head coach, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

Rapoport notes that Garrett met with his players before meeting with Cowboys brass on Monday and thanked his players while telling them it was a privilege to coach them.

While nothing has been confirmed just yet, Garrett is all but surely done as Dallas’ head coach.

The Cowboys routed the Washington Redskins in their season finale on Sunday, but finished with a record of 8-8 and lost out on the NFC East division title to the banged-up Philadelphia Eagles.

Dallas still had slim playoff hopes heading into this past weekend and would have won the division with a victory over the Redskins and an Eagles loss to the New York Giants, but Philadelphia pulled away from the Giants late on Sunday to put the division crown under wraps.

The Cowboys fell to the Eagles in a pivotal showdown that all but decided the division in Philly in Week 16.

Dallas was considered a darkhorse Super Bowl contender by some entering this season and played the part early on, winning its first three games in blowout fashion.

However, the Cowboys fell apart from Week 4 onward, going just 5-8 over their last 13 contests, including some rather embarrassing losses along the way.

Garrett has been at the helm in Dallas since mid-2010 when he took over for Wade Phillips, who had been fired midseason. During his time with the Cowboys, Garrett has led Dallas to three NFC East division titles and two playoff wins.
