Jason Garrett Named Head Coach Of Cowboys

NFL Network's Michael Lombardi is reporting that Jason Garrett had the interim tag removed from his title and is now the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys going forward. Dallas interviewed current wide receivers coach Ray Sherman which satisfies the NFL's "Rooney Rule" which mandates that each team interview at least one minority candidate before hiring a head coach. Now that Dallas has formally interviewed Sherman, the team can name Garrett head coach.

Garrett took over as interim head coach of the Cowboys after Wade Phillips was fired before Week 10. The Cowboys were 1-7 when Garrett took over, but have gone 4-3 under Garrett, giving Dallas a 5-10 record headed into Dallas' week 17 matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles. Along with winning four games under Garrett so far, the team has without a doubt played much harder under Garrett than they did for Phillips.

Terms of the agreement have not yet been disclosed.
