Jason Garrett will be back in the seat for the Dallas Cowboys for a longtime to come.
Currently in his 9th time period at the helm in Dallas, Garrett is apt to sign an delay whenever the offtime period comes for the Cowboys, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport according on Saturday morning. Dallas will make a beardown effort to lock him up.
"I'm told the Cowboys are affirmative that Garrett is active to be their manager active forward," Rapoport said on Good Morning Football Weekend, "and aft the time period when this all ends, they do mean to Begin negotiating a long-term delay with Garrett."
Garrett is nether written agreement with the Cowboys done the 2019 time period pursuing an delay he autographed in 2015 for five years and $30 million.
Another associate of the Dallas force set to return, as well, is Kris Richard, the team's antiaircraft backs manager and antiaircraft play-caller who was a popular head-managering candidate. Richard was a finalist for the Miami Dolphins head-managering vacancy, but as antecedently according by Rapoport, that is anticipated to go to the Patriots' Brian Flores.
Richard is apt to be promoted to "full-time antiaircraft coordinator" next time period with current DC Rod Marinelli apt taking on a senior antiaircraft assistant role.
"The Cowboys love this guy," Rapoport said, "cannot overstate what the players believe in Kris Richard."
And to Marinelli's credit, he "has been incredible regarding this situation giving play-calling duties to Richard," Rapoport added.
Following eight time periods with the Seattle Seahawks -- the last three as antiaircraft coordinator -- Richard is in his first time period with the Cowboys and they're happy to add to that.
The same goes for Garrett, whose squad posted a 10-6 record in the regular time period and won the NFC East title. Garrett boasts a 77-59 record with the Cowboys, which includes just three playoff appearances.
Hence, when Dallas sputtered to a 3-5 start to the time period, some pondered a possible dismissal of Garrett, but it's apt that was never in consideration.
"I never quite got the sense that Garrett was for real in trouble with the Dallas Cowboys," Rapoport said. "This is someone they've invested a lot in and really did believe, even when they were 3-5, that he was the manager of the future. Now they know for sure."
But the immediate future for the Cowboys is in Los Angeles as they look to upset the second-seeded Rams in the Divisional Round of the playoff dance.
Whenever the Cowboys' final ride of the time period comes to fruition, Garrett's future in Dallas will be extended.
"They are very focused on this game," Rapoport said, "but aft the playoffs they'll get down to business."
