The Cowboys are expected to name Jason Garrett as their head coach at a news conference Thursday afternoon.

Garrett took over on an interim basis in 2010 after Wade Phillips was dismissed following a 1-7 start to the season and went 5-3 down the stretch. The team was competitive in every game Garrett coached, with the three losses coming by a combined seven points.

A former Dallas quarterback and offensive coordinator, Garrett has a good understanding of how the franchise is run. His father was a scout for the team and two of his brothers are also in the organization: John Garrett is the Cowboys' tight ends coach and Judd Garrett is director of pro scouting.

The way we see it

This is not a surprise, considering how well the 'Boys finished the campaign under Garrett. Always considered a bright offensive mind, he will now face the full-time pressure of running the league's most popular, and oftentimes most scrutinized, team.
