A source confirmed that after meeting this morning with the Baltimore Ravens upper management for a second time, Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Jason Garrett has been offered the head coaching position there to replace Brian Billick.
Garrett is in Baltimore now. He has not as yet accepted the position.
This is where this gets interesting for the Cowboys.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hired Garrett away from the Miami Dolphins to be the team's offensive coordinator last January. Garrett was hired weeks before Wade Phillips was named head coach.
Does Jones make a large financial push to keep the 41-year-old Garrett, and perhaps guarantee he will be the team's next head coach? Or does he let Garrett accept the position?
Garrett could become the second Cowboys assistant to leave this staff to become a head coach, assuming the Dolphins hire offensive line coach Tony Sparano to replace Cam Cameron. That move could come as early as this week.
