It seems like Jason Garrett's job security is a topic that has been discussed for several years now. The Dallas Cowboys head coach has managed to survive any crisis he's encountered thus far and has even captured three division titles in five years.

Still, Dallas has won only two playoff games in eight-plus seasons under Garrett. He also doesn't have a contract beyond 2019 as of now, so his future in Big D will continue to be a hot topic.

Despite Garrett's lack of a new contract, Jerry Jones insisted it is business as usual for he and the head coach. After all, they did this in 2014, when Garrett went 12-4 in the final season of his deal.

That performance earned him a five-year, $30 million extension.

“We’re both happy with where we are,” Jones said told ESPN's Todd Archer. “And we’ve done this before. We both have real trust in each other. So a little more unique than normal.”

Including playoff games, Garrett is 79-62 as head coach of the Cowboys. He also has won those three NFC East titles.

The Cowboys finished 10-6 in 2018 and won a Wild Card game against the Seattle Seahawks before falling to the Los Angeles Rams.
