Jones says Garrett is 'the right man' to put coaching staff together, no matter how long it's taking

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he is not concerned about how much time head coach Jason Garrett is taking to put together his coaching staff for 2013.

The Cowboys announced the hiring of a special teams coach on Wednesday, but they still lack a running backs coach and a tight ends coach. They have hired a new defensive coordinator and defensive line coach.

“I want him to work through, from my perspective, work through his interviews, sit down with how his staff might meld together, think about some of the philosophy, which is a part of this as well, because certain coaches could bring a certain addition to the kind of thinking that goes on back there with game plans and play-calling,” Jones said in a video posted Thursday on DallasCowboys.com. “So all of that leads me to say, ‘No, I don’t have a timeframe.’ ”

Jones appears eager to see the results of the staff changes.

“However he comes up with how he wants to design how the offense runs, coupled with the fact that we’ve made the changes defensively and with special teams, I’m going to be excited about it,” Jones said. “We’ve got the right man putting this together in Jason Garrett.”

Continuing to do it Jerry's way will continue to doom this franchise. Garrett should have been fired. And Romo should be traded.

Along as garrett has any inputon the decision s made the Dallas tCowboys will never get RESPECT!!!

JJ does not know what he wants always changing his comments, don't trust a word he states. Sooner or later his decisions will effect his profits on and off the football field!!!
