Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones has been supportive of head coach Jason Garrett throughout the season decide questionable decisions and calls. Jones reiterated again this week that Garrett has his support and isn’t coaching for his job.
“He has a bright future with the Cowboys,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan, via Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Garrett for his part is just trying to focus on doing his job.
“I focus on doing my job as well as I can do it,” Garrett said, via Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. “I think the emphasis that we placed on this for players and coaches in this league for a long time is do your job as well as you can do it each and every day. That’s certainly what I learned a long, long time ago.
“I’m proud of our group, how we fought, how we battled, how we gave ourselves a chance to win the game at the end by doing what we needed to do to win it. We have a great opportunity at our stadium next week.”
You’d think if the Cowboys went 8-8 and missed the playoffs again Jones could lose his patience. Especially if there is a desirable coaching candidate available.
