Sources: Jason Garrett agrees to 5-year, $30 million deal

Multiple sources reported Tuesday that Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett had agreed to a five-year, $30 million deal to remain with the team.

ESPN and the NFL Network reported the figures on Tuesday evening.

Garrett said Tuesday morning he "absolutely" wanted to return to Dallas for a fifth full season after making his first trip to the playoffs. The Cowboys lost to Green Bay in an NFC divisional game last weekend.

Dallas was a surprise winner of the NFC East at 12-4 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2009. The Cowboys beat Detroit in a wild-card game.

Garrett says he thinks the Cowboys have "built something here."

Garrett replaced Wade Phillips in the middle of the 2010 season as head coach and has a 41-31 regular season record as Cowboys coach.

The Cowboys also reportedly will keep defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli despite him drawing interest from other teams.
