Cowboys fans will apparently have to wait this one out.
ESPN's Todd Archer on Thursday broke the news that Jerry Jones is unlikely to extend head coach Jason Garrett's contract heading into the final year of his deal with the club.
WFAA's Mike Leslie confirmed the report, via a source in the Cowboys front office.
The lack of an extension will, in effect, have Garrett coaching for his job in 2019, despite the Cowboys making the playoffs and winning in the first round this past season. Garrett has coached the Cowboys since taking over for Wade Phillips in 2010.
His tenure with the club has been mostly consistent but lacking a breakthrough in the postseason. The Cowboys are 77-59 under Garrett with three playoff appearances, including two first-round victories.
Earlier Thursday, the Cowboys announced the promotion of quarterbacks coach Kellen Moore to offensive coordinator, replacing Scott Linehan. Former NFL journeyman Jon Kitna was hired to fill Moore's spot as the quarterbacks coach.
