UPDATE Jan. 5: Jay Glazer reports that Jason Garrett has finally been let go.

The Cowboys are interviewing new head coaches but have not yet to officially fired Jason Garrett. They might just wait until his contract runs out on January 14th according to ESPN’s Chris Mortenson, but he is effectively gone after missing the playoffs this season.

Garrett got a lot of slack from Jerry Jones, as Jones has groomed him to be the head coach ever since he played with the Cowboys, but not making the playoffs with one of the best offenses in the league has finally caused Jones to let Garrett’s contract slowly go un-renewed.

Both Packers HC Mike McCarthy and former Bengals HC Marvin Lewis reportedly interviewed with Dallas on Saturday according to ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Cowboys have a strong team and should get plenty of coaches looking to take over. Lincoln Riley, Josh McDaniels, Matt Rhule, Urban Meyer, Brian Daboll, Dennis Allen, the whole Patriots and 49ers staff. They might even bring Garrett in for an interview.
