Could 2019 be the final year with Jason Garrett at the helm for the Dallas Cowboys? Unless he gets a contract extension soon it certainly will be. But according to the latest reports, an extension doesn't seem to be in the cards for the Cowboys head coach.

According to ESPN NFL reporter Todd Archer via Adam Schefter, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not expected to offer any sort of new contract to Jason Garrett.

If true, Garrett would be going into 2019 will no job security beyond this season, as he enters the final year of his contract.

Garrett is 77-59 as head coach of the Cowboys, and has led the team to three playoff appearances in the last five years.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is not exactly know for doing things the usual way in the NFL, but letting Garrett play out the string on his contract is certainly among the most bizarre decisions.

It is rather uncommon for NFL head coaches to play out the final year of a contract.

Most coaches either get fired or extended the year before the last year at the very latest.

Of course, the Cowboys are not most teams and are not run by most owners.
