These are all the Dallas Cowboys head coaches Jerry Jones let go before Jason Garrett

‘New owner Jerry Jones is in, and Landry is out. Jones has his own coach, the pal he rode in with — Jimmy Johnson.’ — Reported by Sam Blair on Feb. 26, 1989

Editor’s note: Mike McCarthy has been hired as Dallas’ next head coach. You can also take a look back in The Dallas Morning News Archives or in the Dallas Cowboys Collection.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has decided to change head coaches. After 9 1/2 seasons, Jason Garrett is out.

The Cowboys entered 2019 with Super Bowl aspirations, but an 8-8 finish sealed Garrett’s fate. Garrett led the franchise to three NFC East titles and three playoff appearances, but he couldn’t lead the team past the second round of the playoffs. The Cowboys have not reached an NFC Championship Game since after the 1995 season, when they went on to win Super Bowl XXX under coach Barry Switzer.

It’s the eighth coaching change for Jones. His history letting go of his head coaches can be traced through the Dallas Morning News archives, including his most famous — Tom Landry.

Dallas Cowboys’ head coaches:

  1. Tom Landry (1960-88)
  2. Jimmy Johnson (1989-93)
  3. Barry Switzer (1994-97)
  4. Chan Gailey (1998-99)
  5. Dave Campo (2000-02)
  6. Bill Parcells (2003-06)
  7. Wade Phillips (2007-10)
  8. Jason Garrett (2010-2019)
