Jason Garrett took over as Dallas Cowboys head coach during the 2010 season, and has spent a significant amount of time on the hot seat in the eyes of fans, and some segments of the media. Jerry Jones has a close relationship with him, though, and has seemed hellbent on making it work.

The Cowboys are off to a 3-4 start, and while the NFC East is very week, they are now two games behind Washington in the loss-column. The Eagles have been pretty disappointing, and sit at 3-4, but have plenty of talent and have shown flashes since Carson Wentz's return.

Garrett won 12 games in 2014, and 13 in 2016, but hasn't gotten out of the NFC Divisional Round. Those were the Cowboys' only two trips to the playoffs with him as head coach.

We already have odds on the next Dallas Cowboys head coach, if Jerry Jones elects to move on from Jason Garrett.

BetDSI has a long list of candidates to coach the team next year.

The top three:



Current Job:

Josh McDaniels


New England Patriots OC

Sean Payton


New Orleans Saints HC

John DeFilippo


Minnesota Vikings OC

Garrett is fourth in odds to be the coach next year, at +600.

There are plenty of other big names involved down the list, including Jim Harbaugh (+2000), Jeff Brohm (+2000), Lincoln Riley (+2500), Tom Herman and Urban Meyer (+3000 each), and Nick Saban (+5000).

Riley's been discussed as an eventual NFL candidate, but all of those are likely designed to draw attention to the odds overall.
