Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he has “no thoughts” about making a coaching change.
He was responding to a question about a Fox Sports report from Jay Glazer that head coach Jason Garrett’s job is safe for next year no matter how the season ends.
“I didn’t hear that, and have not even thought about anything different than Jason being our coach,” Jones said Sunday in the post-game locker room following the Cowboys’ loss to New Orleans. “So that’s the only response that I have to that. I know that I shared with nobody living anything other than Jason Garrett.”
Jones joked: “I guess I’m living, but I hadn’t even shared that, if there was anything different.”
Then, “But seriously, to be real serious about it, I have no thoughts about making a coaching change.”
Jones was asked if he could envision anything happening to change his mind.
“That’s just way too much here,” he said. “I’m real pleased with how Jason is coaching and how our staff is. I thought it was going to give us a chance today to get us another storybook-ending win, but certainly Jay, if that’s what he said, is on the basis of nothing that I’ve indicated or said. I have no idea, or anybody, about change.”
Reminded that the report was about Garrett staying, Jones said, “I understand, and I’m not taking issue. But I don’t have any more comment about that than I would be if he said I was not. We just haven’t been there. It hasn’t been thought. There’s been no conversations about anyting differently than our keeping Jason entirely.”
