Garrett, who is 35-28 as head coach, is in the final year of his contract, and Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has repeatedly said he believes Garrett has a bright future with the Cowboys but he is not interested in talking about a contract extension.
Neither is Garrett.
“I just know where I need to focus, where our team needs to focus and it needs to focus on playing our best football,” Garrett said. “The way we do that is we focus on being our best today, do a great job evaluating that game, get ready for the players coming in, let’s go to work. That’s really what I think about.”
The Cowboys have the best record in the NFL at 6-1, and their six-game winning streak is their longest since 2007, when they finished an NFC-best 13-3 in Phillips’ first season.
Garrett has never wavered from his process-oriented approach, and the team’s fast start this season is not about to change that.
“If you just keep trying to do things the right way, the results on the scoreboard will hopefully take care of itself,” Garrett said. “And that’s just the way I think. That’s the way we try to help this team.”
When asked if Jones and Garrett’s agent, David Dunn, will talk about a deal, Garrett was terse.
“That was the last answer I’m going to have about my contract,” Garrett said. “Seriously, I’m thinking about getting ready for the Redskins.”
