Jerry Jones in 'no rush' to extend Jason Garrett's contract

The Dallas Cowboys had another disappointing season, but owner Jerry Jones is sticking with head coach Jason Garrett for at least another season. His contract expires at the end of the 2014 season and they’ll address his situation likely after that season because Jones says he is in “no rush” to extend that contract.

From the Dallas Morning News:

On Tuesday, owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he’s in “no rush” to extend that contract.

Jones, speaking to a group of reporters in Mobile, Ala., at the Senior Bowl, said it’s important to be cautious with long-term contracts because of the money involved. He also said Garrett coaching in a contract year is “mistakenly taken as if the future is not there, and that’s wrong.”

That is about as close you can get to actually coaching for your job.
