As a player, he spent seven seasons with the franchise and was part of the rosters that won Super Bowls XXVIII and XXX.
After which, he joined the Cowboys’ coaching staff in 2007 as offensive coordinator.
After getting an interim role, Garrett became the team’s head coach from 2011 to 2019.
He lead the team to three playoff appearances but could never find success.
Garrett was also regarded as Mr. 8-8 because he had the record in four of ten seasons as head coach.
Yet despite the lack of postseason success as a mentor, he continues to get football-related jobs.

After his stint as the New York Giants offensive coordinator, Garrett is set to replace Drew Brees at NBC Sports.
Brees chose to step away after one season wherein he received much criticism for his commentary style.
Aside from doing “Football Night In America,” the former New Orleans Saints quarterback was also doing Notre Dame games and some Sunday Night Football matches with Mike Tirico.
It remains to be seen if Garrett will add tremendous value to NBC’s coverage.
But if Brees did not click, is there reason to believe that Garrett will do better?
Offensive Players Get Love As NFL Analysts
The analysts in the major television networks seem to be former players on offense.
Garrett is the third former Cowboys quarterback that will have a job in the broadcast booth.
Can defensive players get some love as well?
