Despite a plethora of mediocre and/or disappointing seasons by the Dallas Cowboys, owner Jerry Jones has stood firm behind head coach Jason Garrett. The team recently fired offensive coordinator Scott Linehan and have made Kellen Moore the replacement to help with Dak Prescott's continued development at QB.
It looks like Jones' faith in Garrett, however, has faded over the years, because he will not be extending Garrett's contract this offseason.

Jones has been under fire in the past by fans and analysts for protecting Garrett despite his inadequacies as the head coach. That protection is no more, however, as he sees a championship window opening for the trio of Prescott, running back Ezekiel Elliott and wide receiver Amari Cooper. In addition to a talented trio, the Cowboys also boasted a talented defense that can make them a scary team if coached up properly. If Garrett is unable to maximize the team's potential, he will be looking at job interviews a year from now at long last.
Fans took to Twitter to voice their opinions on the lack of desire to extend Garrett's contract.

Looks likes Jones has the fans' approval.
The Cowboys enter the 2019-20 season with loads of potential on both sides of the ball. All eyes will be on Jason Garrett to see whether he can bring the team to new heights.
