The Dallas Cowboys lost their third consecutive Week 17 season-deciding game on Sunday. Naturally with disappointment comes question marks, and question marks aplenty.
It has already been widely reported that Jones will bring back head coach Jason Garrett in 2014, but what of offensive coordinator Bill Callahan and defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin?
According to Calvin Watkins at ESPNDallas.com, via a 105.3 The Fan radio interview, Jones is in no rush to make decisions on either coach’s status.
“We’ll be looking at that in the future,” Jones said. “There’s no hurry on that.”
Jones reiterated the positivity behind being in the race the past three seasons and his desire to get over the .500 mark.
“One thing that’s positive here is that we’re in it, we’ve been in it the last three years,” the Cowboys’ owner and general manager said.
Being ‘in it’ but never getting over the playoff precipice has to be more-than-frustrating for fans, and Jones recognized that fact in the interview.
“Of course, Jason has been on this staff for going on seven years now, so we’ve been in it during his time as head coach. We have been in it, right there playing for it, in the last game for the last three years. I’m in complete step with our fans that want more than 8-8,” Jones said.
While many expect heads to roll following another disappointing finish to a season, not-so-fast, it would appear. Perhaps patience is the best policy but clearly something needs to change in Dallas.
