ESPN says the Cowboys have hired Jason Garrett

ESPN is reporting that we've hired Jason Garrett as the offensive coordinator.

The Cowboys have hired Miami Dolphins quarterbacks coach Jason Garrett as their offensive coordinator, and he remains a candidate for Dallas' vacant head coaching position, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports.

Well, that's one step done. Now comes the second part.

It's now up to the Cowboys whether to appoint Garrett as the head coach later after interviews with other head coach candidates, primarily San Diego Chargers defensive coordinator Wade Phillips or San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Norv Turner.

We also need to start thinking about a defensive coordinator. That might have to wait for a new head coach to be officially named, or Jones could just hire one himself and force him on the new coach.
