The Dallas Cowboys right now have their head coach and quarterback heading into the final year of their contracts. Jerry Jones said he anticipates getting a new deal done with Dak Prescott.

Right now though, Jones is not as definitive about head coach Jason Garrett's status. He's not saying Garrett won't coach in Big D beyond 2019, he's just not discussing a contract extension right now.

In an appearance on The Rich Eisen Show with Michael Irvin on Monday, Jones said he's "satisfied" with Garrett's contractual status as of now.

“I’m satisfied with where we are with his contract right now,” Jones said, via Pro Football Talk. “It is to be negotiated at some point in the future. We all know that we need to get out here and win ball games.”

Jones' full comments can be found below.

Garrett has led the Cowboys to three NFC East titles in the last five seasons and is a longtime favorite of Jones. Odds are, the owner wants to keep him as the head coach for a while.

However, if Dallas underachieves this season, you know there will be grumbling from fans, and Jones might have no choice but to make a change.
