"Absolutely, I want to be here," he told reporters Tuesday.
Owner Jerry Jones has been steadfast in his confidence that Garrett would return during the Cowboys' turnaround year, despite the coach's contract expiring at the end of the season.
Behind a bruising offensive line, Dallas became one of the most balanced offensive teams in the NFL this season.
"We're proud of the team we've assembled, the staff we've assembled, the players we've brought in here. I think we're building it the right way," Garrett said.
The coach's focus will be in retaining his assistants, whose contracts are also set to expire.
"I would absolutely love to see Rod Marinelli stay here," Garrett said. "He's done a great job for us. ... Absolutely. I express that to him on a daily basis."
Garrett added that Marinelli has also expressed a desire to remain in Dallas.
