It's official: Jason Garrett has one foot out the door. And the news comes from the most official place you'll find: the Dallas Cowboys' official Web site (or, at least, its blog), which says that the former QB-turned-offensive coordinator will be interviewed by the Atlanta Falcons on Friday in Dallas. That comes from Garrett himself. Also talking to the Falcons about their vacant coaching spot, of course, is assistant head coach Tony Sparano. --Robert Wilonsky
