After the Cowboys' 30-22 loss, Owens tweeted at team owner Jerry Jones saying he should consider moving on from Garrett.
Owens, who played under Garrett when Garrett was the Cowboys' offensive coordinator in 2007 and 2008, has previously questioned the coach's credentials. In May, he told 105.3 The Fan in Dallas that "the Cowboys are] not really expanding or progressing even as a team under his coaching tenure there." Owens also questioned Garrett's playcalling while he was on the Cowboys in 2008.
On Saturday, Owens also tweeted that players are hoping Garrett will be dismissed. He did acknowledge in one response that some of his attitude could be related to how his tenure in Dallas ended.
Yeh, maybe a little. That sapsucker got rid of me & had Jerry thinking I was the problem. So what has he really accomplished since I left?!! *jeopardy tune* https://t.co/emXbCUj6eg— Terrell Owens (@terrellowens) January 13, 2019
Garrett has been the Cowboys' coach since 2011. He has an overall record of 79-62 with Dallas, which includes eight games as interim coach in 2010 and a 2-3 playoff record. He is the second-longest-tenured coach and second-winningest coach in franchise history after Tom Landry.
He remains under contract through 2019 after signing a five-year deal following a 12-4 season in 2014.
