Garrett's the guy
Jerry makes it official
IRVING, Texas (AP) - A person familiar with the decision says
Jason Garrett is the new coach of the Dallas Cowboys.
The person confirmed the decision Thursday to The Associated
Press on condition of anonymity because the Cowboys had not yet
announced Garrett's hiring. The team scheduled a Thursday afternoon
Garrett went 5-3 as interim coach after he replaced Wade
Phillips, who was fired after the team started 1-7. Garrett had
been the team's offensive coordinator and assistant head coach.
Owner Jerry Jones interviewed receivers coach Ray Sherman and
Miami assistant head coach Todd Bowles for the job, but Garrett was
always considered the front-runner.
