Garrett Staying in Dallas

Jason Garrett has withdrawn from consideration for the head coaching jobs of the Baltimore Ravens and Atlanta Falcons, an NFL source said this morning.

He plans to remain the offensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys, said the source, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because the decision has not been announced publicly.

Garrett met with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones after returning from a second round of interviews with the Ravens and Falcons on Tuesday and Wednesday. The Cowboys, according to sources, had offered to match the financial terms of any head coaching offers that Garrett received.

Garrett's withdrawal could leave the Ravens focusing on Philadelphia Eagles secondary coach John Harbaugh and the Falcons on Ravens defensive coordinator Rex Ryan.

You wonder if he just used the interviews to just get a bigger contract, or if he was truly interested in Baltimore or Atlanta. If I were the owners of those two teams, I would be pissed as they were just used by the guy.

Jones probably finally assured him that he is the heir apparent to Wade Phillips when he goes. Probably 2 years from now.

Posted by: Red | January 17, 2008 11:26 AM

It's obvious that Wade is out if he doesn't get a playoff win next season so Jerry Jones has promised Head Coach to Garrett. Snyder and Jones, the two guys you want to talk with if your a good coordinator or assistand coach!

Well i'm not sure what all the hoopla was over him in the first place...Nothing about the Cowboys offense would've made me decide he was the next NFL genius...if you take away the lucky bounces in a majority of the boys games, and look at teams that had them beat only to let one of those lucky bounces or there ineptness cost them the game against them like the Bills. I think we'll see next year they weren't all the hype they were made out to be...

"You wonder if he just used the interviews to just get a bigger contract."

Nothing to wonder, I thought the same thing. I don't think he ever intended to leave there.

No worries, when the coaching staff all gets fired next year for having a losing season he will be begging for a job.

History shows that Wade's second year has lways been his "bust" year, then he gets canned.

Dallas did have the #3 offense in the league this season. He must have done something. Just sayin'

Posted by: Omar | January 17, 2008 11:53 AM

You would think the TUNA would know which of the Dallas assistants he would want and Garret never came up. I know he didn't have Garrett on his roster but I think he knows who is the real brains behind the offense there. Garrett is over rated.

Posted by: Stevida | January 17, 2008 11:56 AM

Garrett isn't ready to be a head coach yet and he knows it. He was interviewing as both a courtesy to the teams and to give him some experience with the process.

Posted by: mart | January 17, 2008 12:03 PM

The low life's true colors of the Cowboys came out.

Posted by: Mike Morgan | January 17, 2008 12:13 PM

It could be a serious mistake on his part. He's the hot commodity right now, but the NFL is a cruel mistress as the Ravens, the Bears and the Saints found out this year. Perceptions of coaches can be alteres as the fortunes of their teams are changed.

Posted by: Ed | January 17, 2008 12:14 PM

Another good point about Garrett was made in today's Baltimore Sun: unfortunately, Baltimore has a bad vibe as a place to live for people who only know the city from "Homicide" and "The Wire." And that's all Garrett and his wife probably had to go on about the area. Of course, that doesn't expalin why he'd turn Atlanta down.

Posted by: Chris C. | January 17, 2008 12:32 PM

The #3 offense, ok, so what did that get them??? Offensive numbers are junk...if the NFL would let the defense play defense, let's just see how many of those so called high powered offenses would run then...

Posted by: 1trufan | January 17, 2008 12:32 PM

Good riddance. His offence couldn't beat a depleted Giants secondary - the Ravens are better off without him. Let's see how many people are singing his praises after Dallas goes through a tougher schedule next year. What I cannot figure out is, why is Russ Grimm's name missing from all these search lists? Has anyone even inquired with Arizona about interviewing him? Russ Grimm was a finalist for the Steelers job, did I miss something this past year?

Posted by: MDL7 | January 17, 2008 12:34 PM

Then again could he have been afraid himself of being a head coach, maybe he realized he isn't ready for such a job... As I believe if you're looking for a head coaching job and are ready you take it...and i'd think i'd take Baltimore over Atlanta less rebuilding going on and more talent with a better chance at success a lot earlier...

Posted by: 1trufan | January 17, 2008 12:37 PM

MDL7 i've asked that question myself and only conclude that after so many interviews and no takers he may not be a great head coaching candidate. I like Grimm i'm a Skins fan...but even I had to wonder what is it about him that no one has taken him...

Posted by: 1trufan | January 17, 2008 12:40 PM

Why all the hate for Garrett interviewing with other teams to improve his own salary with the Cowboys? Smart people in all careers do this, it's the best way to establish proof of your market value.

Posted by: mike | January 17, 2008 12:41 PM

Well what proof does he have? I don't recall the Cowboy offense being poor the year before he came there. He's no diffent then all these athletes coming out of school or should I say their agents demanding lucrative contracts and have yet to prove they are worthy...

Posted by: 1trufan | January 17, 2008 12:49 PM

I don't see what is wrong with him using those teams to get a bigger contract. I think that is smart buisness on his part. Isn't that what athletes do when they "test" the free agency market? As a skins fan I don't care what he does as long as it is not come here.

Posted by: jabaker | January 17, 2008 1:12 PM

Wow 1trufan lucky bounces. I guess Garrett was just closing his eyes and feeling the force when he created the game plan and called all the plays for each game. Their offense went from 5th ranked to 3rd ranked. For any offensive coordinator regardless of experience, that would be a significant jump and one that would result in praise but because Garrett is a first year OC with only two years of coaching experience then we'll just chalk it up to luck! I guess Gibbs going 31-36 in his second go around had everything to do with being unlucky!

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 1:15 PM

Redskins offensive rankings since 04: 30th,19th,13th, and this year 15th. Wow your right jabaker why would you want an OC with the number 3 ranked offense. Continue to play 1980's Redskins football and you will continue to lose every year.

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 1:24 PM

No Gibbs going 31-36 is all part of his coaching, playing not to lose, instead of playing to win...always nervous about every team when everyone else knew it shouldn't even be close. Up here as he would say every game doesn't have to be close, his soft but assured mentality kept many games alot closer then they should've been. I hate what New England did to us, however I appreciate a coach who will make sure you know you won't make a comeback on us...and going from 5th rank to 3rd isn't saying much, it wasn't like they were the worst offense in the league. Now as you may well know we work ranked near the bottom in offense the year before, so if we had made it into the top 10 that would be improvement and worth the glorification some are giving Garrett...

Posted by: 1trufan | January 17, 2008 1:24 PM

Makes you wonder how long Wade Phillips will be in charge in big D...

Posted by: Tim O. | January 17, 2008 1:31 PM

The guy was a QB's coach for only two years and to come in and not screw things up or take a step back but to actually improve upon a solid offense in your first year as OC deserves glorification. That offense he ran was his not Parcells. A team usually will take a step back when somebody comes in with a new offense but 13-4 is pretty darn good. But he certainly is not ready to be a head coach. Heck Gibbs at least had a lot more coaching experience when he got here in his early 40's (not comparing the two). I will give it to old Gibbsy, taking this team to the playoffs twice the past three years might have been more impressive than his SuperBowls.

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 1:40 PM

Smart move by Garrett. My guess is that he would have stayed even if they didn't choke in the playoffs.

If I was a betting man, my money would be on Garrett staying and becoming the next Cowboys couch after they realize that Wade Philips can't win in the playoffs.

Posted by: Keith Ashdown | January 17, 2008 1:49 PM

I find if funny, that when any team does poorly, it's because the coaching is bad and when they win, the coaches are just lucky.

The fact remains that 80% is about the players. That's why the redskins are in so much trouble every year ... no good GM to get good players, and the real impact of Parcells in Dallas was that he upgraded the talent of the players.

Gibbs has always been a good to great coach. The difference, the first time around he had better players.

Posted by: Nate | January 17, 2008 2:01 PM

redskins won just as many playoff games as the cowboys this year, beat them convincingly, and would have beat them twice but for a few lucky bounces and the absence of #21

Posted by: Anonymous | January 17, 2008 2:02 PM

Perhaps Grimm is more like Ol'Ritchie Pettibon.Great coordinator , but not HC material.

Posted by: jj | January 17, 2008 2:10 PM

..almost coughed up my soda from jj's comments...Cowgirls in the Super Bowl next year!?

When Philips mismanages the team, and TO finally blows up, that'll be a sight to see. Even Switzer never had to contend with the TO dynamite.

Here's hoping that Jessica sticks around next year...

HAHAHAHA

Posted by: oh man | January 17, 2008 2:15 PM

Get real jj, them boys won't be in no superbowl next year...they first must learn how to win in the playoffs...going on 12 years since their last playoff win, say what you want about the skins but they've been to the playoffs twice in 3 years and won a game 2 years ago in Tampa and if that's not good enough go back to 2000 won another playoff game only to lose to the eventual Superbowl Champs...and as for the Nate comment how much do you really change when you pass to Owens and or Glenn or Crayton or hand-off to Jones or Barber the cowboy offense looked the same as it did when Parcells was there...so that's how he had success...

Posted by: 1trufan | January 17, 2008 2:17 PM

Beat them convincingly, please let's call a spade a spade. The first game was close and Campbell made a mistake and Newman jumped the route and caught that lucky bounce as you would call it. Now the second game the Redskins scored 13 points against Dallas 1st and 2nd team defensive packages. Any defense in the league would take that in a heart beat even Greg Williams and our offense was awful in the first half and some in the third quarter. The Redskins beat a team that was half assing it the entire game. The two deep touchdowns were agains a third stringer and a cornerback who had been activated from the practice squad for that game. So you might want to relax on the word "convincingly" 21 does change the game plan for teams but he was out there for three of the past seasons in which each team defeated the other so it really didn't make that much of a difference.

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 2:19 PM

This isn't about Redskins better or worse record wise. Its about the skill / value of a coach.

Gibbs = Great Coach
1981 - 1992 4 Super Bowls 3 wins
2004 - 2007 0 Super Bowls

difference, players not coach

Joe Bugel = Great Coach
Bad Head coach because of bad players, not because he was a bad coach

Same with Pettibone

Actually even the same with Norv Turner, decent coach, won with Cowboys because of good players, started eventually to win with Redskins as the players got better, gets fired, goes to Oakland, bad players bad result, goes to San Diego, good players good result.

Jimmy Johnson, great with Cowboys, why he was committed to evaluating players, goes to the dolphins, realizes how much work it takes to find, and get good players, has bad results and says, I don't want to work this hard. And believe me, its not the coaching that is hard, its the scouting and evaluating of players that is hard.

Posted by: Nate | January 17, 2008 2:21 PM

though I did not think he was ready or even good enough, you don't interview for an obvious promotion in a small industry such as the NFL and refuse the offers. The NFL is fickle when it comes to winning, but the guy has in essence tied his entire career with the Cowboys by this. No other team should ever want to talk to him given this response.

So UMDFAN, why don't you spend some more time learning how to read. I'm agreeing with you that Garett may not be the end all be all. It is more about the players than anything else. And that is why the Redskins are stuck where they are, player evaluation. The Cowboys maybe right back there too, with Parcells and now Jeff Ireland gone.

Posted by: Nate | January 17, 2008 2:25 PM

Garrett was very interested in a Head Coaching job. Don't think for a minute he was using the other teams to get Jones to sweeten his salary. Garrett understands a Head Coaching job doesn't come along everyday, and he also knows his stock could come down next year-after all it will will be tough to duplicate, much less beat this season. Most people around Garrett say he is very responsible, honest, and forthright. I know per the NFL rules that Jones cannot assure him the next time a Head Coach job in Dallas is available that he will get it (wink-wink) but you know it probably happened. And yes, I am sure Garrett just got a BIG RAISE to stay. His choice. Most people here in Dallas thought he would take the Ravens job. By the way, this was his offensive calling all the way and not a Parcells offense. Nuff said.

When will you cowboy fans quit making excuses. We should've beat you in dallas and we kicked your A- - here, and your 1st string played into the 3rd qtr I ought to know I was there and witnessed it all. And then who cares when the 2nd and or 3rd string came in we were playing with our back-up QB, two back-up offensive lineman, a back-up linebacker, a back-up safety etc., so your whining means nothing here...talk about fickled fans before the boys played us a second time i saw cowboy flags new, cowboy gear new, cowboy license frames new and after we kicked off in their a- -, it all disappeared but you know what all my Redskin stuff is still in it's same place on my vehicle in my office etc., what is it are you ashamed of being a cowboys fan....

Posted by: america's team | January 17, 2008 3:05 PM

Which means??? Not a thing here most cowboy fans know more about what's going on with the Skins then they do about the cowboys. And I think the cowboys are more South America's team then you're self pro-claimed America's team Texas belongs to Mexico and didn't you guys play a game down there a few years back? And as strange as it may seem I see quite a bit of people from the South America region wearing Cowboys hat....

Posted by: 1trufan | January 17, 2008 3:05 PM

1trufan really! Jesus can anybody actually be objective and realize that it wasn't an excuse that Dallas and Indy and the rest of the teams already in didn't give all the effort. For cying out loud take the blinders off. Really do you think that the Cowboys gave everything they had in that game, do you because you are a true fan so I figured you would be smart enough to realize what was going on. Oh yeah and I did mention earlier that the Cowboys offense was awful in the first half and part of the 3rd quarter, read! Oh and you shouldn't have beat us in Dallas because guess you didn't. Talk about f-ing whining, oh man if we had #21 it would've have been different and it was Campbell's first game in Dallas and if he would've ran for the first down instead of thrown the interception we would have had just a first down and no way of knowing that the next play after that Jason could've have fumbled, or thrown an interception anyway. Oh my lord the hypocrisy of it all!

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 3:05 PM

The pro bowl is just a popularity contest and doesn't matter who's on that team any football person would know most of the people on there probably didn't deserve it...just like any all star game it's not what you've done, it's what's your name...and 9 pro bowlers so what did that get you? A seat at home like everyone else to see who will be in the superbowl...

Posted by: da skins man | January 17, 2008 3:09 PM

Those 12 pro bowlers obviously were not enough to get those losers any further that the skins in terms of playoff wins. Doing less with more, eh? Sounds like something to be really proud of. I guess those results should be excused along with your teams trouncing at the hands of the MIGHTY REDSKINS!

Posted by: objective fan | January 17, 2008 3:13 PM

Wow TRUFAN you are smart. I never could figure out why the Cowboys had such a large hispanic following until I realized oh yeah Texas is close to Mexico. WOW education is good! Now if you want to widen this discussion from just football to race and ethnicity I would love to find out how you feel about rooting for a team whose name is a derogatory term for Native American. Kind of like the N word for African Americans? What was your point again oh that is wright you never had one.

Oh yeah and the starters of the pro-bowl are voted by the players and fans and the rest of the team by the fellow players.

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 3:30 PM

It is kind of sad that Redskin fans have to take pleasure in the collapse of Dallas against the Giants in the playoffs but I guess that is expected from a team that hasn't won anything since 1991. Now that is pathetic!

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 3:33 PM

Hey 1trufan, i'm with you, those Dallas fans will never admit to getting their
a- -es handed to them. Any player who would go out and play half heartedly is only setting himself up for a serious injury. Let's ask what happened to them against the Giants? They beat them twice, but when it came to the game that really mattered and at home on top of that they chocked like the dogs they are, so umdfan get real, if you and the boys make it to the playoffs next year try and win a playoff game will ya!

Posted by: da skins man | January 17, 2008 3:36 PM

umdfan, let's see yes our last Superbowl was in 91 and yours was when? 95??? at least we can say we've won more playoff games then you boys in the last 11 going on 12 years. Yours 95-96 the skins well let's see 2000, 2005 so don't bring in the last time anyone won anything...

Posted by: da skins man | January 17, 2008 3:40 PM

0-for the last 12 years when it comes to playoff victories.
now THAT is pu-thetic!

Posted by: objective fan | January 17, 2008 3:41 PM

da skins fan I will admit when we get our a**'s handed to us, but we didn't. But I understand that the Redskins fans are sick of losing to Dallas so when they do win they don't want to look at reality but live in their own fantasy land. A victory against third and fourth stringers to the Redskins is an a** kicking. Hey here is real, Snyder and Gibbs love where the Skins are and their direction; 14-18 in the past two seasons and about 20-25% over the salary cap with possible coaching changes at the DC, OC and ofcourse head coaching position. Dallas 22-10 in the past two seasons with no salary cap issues and losing our offensive lines coach. Okay da skins fan we'll try to win one next year!

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 3:46 PM

UMDFAN...first of all it's right not wright and secondly as person of both native american and african american heritage the name doesn't bother me one bit as it is not being used in a deragatory way! I would be more offended by the name cowboy as they took their land, raped the women and lynched and killed more blacks then history will actually tell...

Da skins you guys have two and past 7 years and you think that smack talking. See the difference between the Cowboys fans and Redskins fans is that you get excited about the little scraps you get while the Cowboys fans just care about SuperBowls. I guess you guys will get to that place one day.

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 3:51 PM

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 3:55 PM

I do believe the skins have won 4 of the last 6 games between the two teams! Let's see 2005 skins - 2 cowboys - 0 2006 1 a piece and 2007 1 a piece = skins 4 boys - 2
and then add playoff victories in the last oh lets say 10 years skins 2-1 cowboys well 0'fer

Absolutely, 2-1 in the playoffs vs 0-2 and the Redskins have won 4 of the past 6. I still think in terms of the ability to win a SuperBowl the Cowboys are right there and the Redskins have a long way to go, wouldn't you agree Redskin fans?

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 4:03 PM

to umdfan:
no objective fan would agree with such a ludicrous statement. a sad fading star that never reached the pinacle of brilliance. woe is d.

Posted by: objective fan | January 17, 2008 4:06 PM

Actually an ignorant stubborn person wouldn't agree with fact. In terms of playoff wins and head to head in the past 6 contests the Redskins have the edge. In terms of championships, talent and the ability to win a SuperBowl in the next year of so the Cowboys have the edge. But I guess when Dallas won lik 16 in a row or something that really tarnished that star, yeah you're right objective woe is D...DC

Posted by: umdfan | January 17, 2008 4:13 PM

16 in a row is fine and dandy. Now win one when it counts and you can say you've got something going for you.

Just the simple fact that since week 13 the skins are 4-1 while the cowboys are 2-3. And week 17! It was like we passed eachother on paralell escalators at the mall.
