Houston, Texas – Coach Garrett was once QB2 behind Dallas Cowboys legend Troy Aikman. In 2007, Coach Garrett was hired by the Cowboys as offensive coordinator. He guided the Cowboys to the 2nd best offense in the NFL, which made him an attractive head coaching prospect. Immediately following, Garrett was a high profile head coaching candidate. He received offers from the Baltimore Ravens and the Atlanta Falcons, but ultimately opted to remain in Dallas. Other teams interested were the Detroit Lions, Denver Broncos, and St. Louis Rams. His salary for the 2008 season was nearly $3 million; the highest salary for an assistant coach in the NFL.
In the 2010 season, Jason Garrett was named the Head Coach of the Dallas Cowboys and he currently has had the longest tensure of any Dallas Cowboys Head Coach, longer than Tom Landry, Jimmy Johnson, and Bill Parcels.
Jason Garrett lead the Cowboys to a franchise record 13 win season. The Cowboys were by far the most exciting team in the NFL this season, all you have to do is look at these visuals for the tale to be told. At one point in the season (weeks 13, 14, 15, 16), the NFL schedule was adjusted so the Dallas Cowboys could play 4 straight prime time night games and that potentially saved a season that needed to make up for some low ratings early on.
Jason Garrett is widely respected and has done unthinkable measures for the Dallas Cowboys. Today, Coach Garrett has won NFL Coach of the Year. Panthers head coach Ron Rivera earned the nod a year ago. He finished with 25 votes to get the honor after Belichick finished second in voting with 14 votes. Coach Garrett looks to become the first Head Coach to win this award in consecutive seasons since Joe Gibbs in 1982 and 1983.
