Jerry Jones: Dallas Cowboys won’t have the coaching staff changes they had after the 2012 season


Despite falling short of the playoffs for a fourth consecutive season, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Tuesday morning that there won’t be the same coaching staff changes the franchise experienced following the 2012 season.

During his weekly radio appearance on 105.3 The Fan [KRLD-FM] Jones said he had made the decision several weeks ago that he would not be firing head coach Jason Garrett at the end of the season.

“I think what’s important here is that I haven’t given it any consideration,” Jones said. “I like what he’s doing as coach, so I haven’t given it any consideration.”

Jones justified the decision to keep Garrett for the final year of his contract by saying the Cowboys “have been in it the last three years” at the end of the season, losing three consecutive win-or-go-home Week 17 games.

Jones also pointed out that Garrett has posted a better record than the five NFL head coaches that were fired Monday.

In regards to Garrett’s coaching staff, Jones said he’s “pleased” that the Cowboys have defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and offensive coordinator Bill Callahan.

“We had a rough year, but we didn’t necessarily have a rough year because of coaching, in terms of our defense,” Jones said. “All of that will be considered as we look forward. I haven’t really sat down and discussed it, looked at it, and I don’t know how much thought Jason has given to it during this latter part of the season.

“We’ll be looking at that in the future. There’s no hurry on that.”

Jones said since Kiffin and Callahan are still under contract, you have to “assume that their contract status is the decision, until we do differently.”

Dallas finished with its worst defensive season in franchise history, allowing 415.3 yards per game. Offensively, the Cowboys finished 16th in the NFL, totaling 5,461 yards, their lowest total since 2005.
