By Cindy Boren

Updated at 1:59 p.m.

Jason Garrett, the Dallas Cowboys' offensive coordinator who has been the interim head coach since replacing Wade Phillips on Nov. 9, will be given the job, according to an NFL Network report.

Michael Lombardi of the network, citing unnamed sources, reported the news Sunday morning, advancing an earlier Fort Worth Star Telegram report that Garrett was the "likely" choice. Lombardi reported that the team discussed the job with wide receivers coach Ray Sherman, meeting requirements of the Rooney Rule.

The Dallas Morning News, however, disputes the report, saying that no deal is in place.

Under Garrett, who joined the team in 2007 and was long considered to be the coaching heir apprent, the Cowboys are 4-3 after a 1-7 start. Phillips reportedly will join Gary Kubiak's staff in Houston.
