The Dallas Cowboys have made re-signing head coach Jason Garrett their top priority.
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said talks regarding a contract extension were already underway after the team's controversial 26-21 loss to the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's National Football Conference (NFC) divisional play-off.
Jones, who went on record in December stating Garrett will be offered a new deal, told 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] on Monday: "He's the number one priority.
"He's what I'm what I'm working on all day today; been working on it. Started last night. And we want to get him signed up.
"We've reached out to pretty much our whole staff. Obviously, there's a pecking order, and our goal is to keep our staff together. And we'll continue to try to do that."
Garrett has a 42-32 career record with the Cowboys after recording 12 wins and four defeats en route to the 2014 play-offs.
And more importantly, the 48-year-old wants to stay in Dallas.
"This is a great organization. I think we really built a football team that we can be proud of, and there are some really good things ahead for this team," said Garrett, who also spoke with 105.3 The Fan.
