OXNARD, Calif. (AP) - Dallas Cowboys fans on Facebook, and there are a lot of them, won't be getting a friend request from coach Jason Garrett.

The Cowboys say the team's Facebook page surpassed 5 million likes this week. They are the first NFL team to hit that mark.

When Garrett was asked it, he said he had no idea what likes were. He said he's never been on Facebook, but says the social media outlet is an incredible phenomenon.

The coach joked everybody in the world is on Facebook but him. Garret did see the movie, "The Social Network," which he called outstanding.

When the Princeton-educated coach was asked if he wasn't on Facebook because chairman Mark Zuckerberg is from Harvard, Garrett laughed and said that had nothing to do with it.
