Sources Say Garrett Staying with the Cowboys

Evidently the influence and money of Jerry Jones is enough, as reports are coming in that offensive coordinator Jason Garrett is going to be staying with the Cowboys. Word came down late last night that Garrett met with Jones, and that the owner worked hard in trying to get his guy to stay on board with the team and turn down an offer to become the head coach of the Baltimore Ravens.

The word was that Garrett was going to get anywhere up to $3 mil per season to stay on with the Cowboys, plus he was told that he would be the next coach of the team, no question. There are also reports that there could be a series of balloon payments if Garrett isn’t the head coach come March 2009, March 2010, and so on. In other words, the longer he is not the head coach, the more money he will make.

It’s an interesting move to spurn the opportunity to be the head coach of a NFL team. After all, if the Cowboys don’t reach the high win total they did this year, the buzz around Garrett might quickly go away, leaving him to simply be nothing more than an assistant coach for quite sometime. Of course if the team does not do all that well, it’s likely that Jones would pull the plug on Wade Phillips and Garrett would be the new head coach.
