Jason Garrett to be named Dallas Cowboys' head coach

By Cindy Boren

Jason Garrett will be introduced as the Dallas Cowboys' head coach in a press conference at 2:30 p.m. EST today.

Garrett, formerly the team's offensive coordinator, went 5-3 after replacing Wade Phillips on Nov. 9. Those three losses were by a total of seven points and the Cowboys finished 6-10.

Garrett is the first Cowboys coach to work his way up through the ranks, according to the Dallas Morning News. He was a backup quarterback before becoming offensive coordinator.

why can't we get a young, aggressive and creative coach like him here? zorn was never even a coordinator and i think these old white guys like shannibag are unable to connect with these thug wannabe's. glass eye and his unique looking son are going to drag this rat farm down further. we can't get close to the talent on Philly, NYG, and Dallas and with Grossberg behind the wheel we are khairtaing for another 5 years minimum. We are Detroit east, like it or not.
