The Dallas Cowboys are doing everything they can to sign head coach Jason Garrett – who is no longer under contract with the team – to a deal.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen, the Cowboys and Garrett are close to reaching a five-year agreement.

Garrett is 42-32 since taking over as the Cowboys’ head coach in 2010. The Cowboys were 12-4 this season, capturing the NFC East title and beating the Detroit Lions in their first playoff game since 2009. However, the Cowboys were narrowly beaten 26-21 by the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Divisional Round of the playoffs after a very controversial call against WR Dez Bryant.
Questions do remain if the coaching staff will remain intact. OC Bill Calahan and DC Rod Marinelli both have expired deals and are candidates for interviews at vacant positions with other teams.
The Dallas Cowboys have not been to the NFC Championship game or the Superbowl since 1995.
