Jason Garrett had the interim tag removed and will be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, a team source said Sunday.
The team had no comment other than to say nothing about its coaching situation has changed this week.
The Cowboys interviewed receivers coach Ray Sherman to satisfy the NFL's "Rooney Rule," which requires teams to interview at least one minority candidate.
Garrett is 4-3 entering Sunday's season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles. He took over for Wade Phillips, who was fired after a 1-7 start and most likely will land with the Houston Texans as their defensive coordinator.
Garrett, a former NFL quarterback, joined the Cowboys in 2007 as offensive coordinator. He long was considered the coach-in-waiting in Dallas.
