After the Cowboys lost to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday night, owner and general manager Jerry Jones remained committed to head coach Jason Garrett. After last season he stuck with Garrett but promised to make things “uncomfortable” in the offseason and did some rearranging and firing of coaching staff.
Asked again after a Week 17 loss about the coaching staff and Jones declined to discuss it.
“I’m not discussing that at all,” Jones said, via Tim MacMahon of ESPN Dallas. “I have spoken a little more appropriate time here about three or four weeks ago. I said at that time that I was with Jason, that I thought that his future and what he’s going to be doing with us was good. But this isn’t the time and I don’t even like the way it feels or looks to speak to anything about our coaches.”
The big question is whether defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin is returning. Kiffin said he won’t retire.
“I don’t plan on retiring,” Kiffin said. “I want to keep on coaching. I really would. It’s no laughing matter. I’m proud to be a Cowboy. I’d like to get another shot next year. We’ll see.”
