Jason Garrett not expected to remain with Cowboys

In the span of two days the Cleveland Browns cleaned house by parting ways with head coach Freddie Kitchens and general manager John Dorsey

The 53-year-old's contract is set to expire on January 14, and a reported third meeting between Garrett, owner Jerry Jones, and executive vice president Stephen Jones didn't occur.

No official statement from the team was issued as of early Friday morning but Jones has not shied away from his frustrations with Garrett's performance this season. The Cowboys finished the year second in the NFL East with an 8-8 record.

Per the report, owner/general manager Jones and his son, vice president Stephen Jones, did not have their meeting with Garrett as scheduled at the team's facility Thursday, after they also met on Monday and Tuesday.

Instead, questions are lingering regarding possible changes on the coaching staff.

The Dallas Cowboys' handling of Jason Garrett has left many wondering this week what is going on.

In an item on the team-owned website, with a link posted on the team-owned Twitter account, the Cowboys have declared that the news is no news. Garrett has been the head man in Dallas since taking over for Wade Phillips in the middle of the 2010 season, leading the team to an 85-67 regular season record, two playoff wins, and three division titles during his tenure.

Garrett appeared to be on the hot seat for much of the year after Jones opted not to renew his contract last offseason. "Jason Garrett is one of them and in my opinion, Jason Garrett will be coaching in the National Football League next year".
