Jason Garrett’s job is secure.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones unexpectedly called into 105.3 The Fan to defend his head coach and assure he will remain in his position after the topic was brought up on the “Ben and Skin Show” on Wednesday.
“We’ve made several commitments and the reason it’s not being talked about isn’t because Jason is on shaky ground or isn’t on solid ground,” Jones said. “We’re putting together different ideas and we don’t want it to be a featured topic around the Super Bowl.”
Jones did, however, hint that Kellen Moore is expected to get a promotion to offensive coordinator.
“Jason’s going to be making an announcement here real quickly, but make no mistake about it… he’s going to be a key guy in what play is run on that football field — and by key, probably have the ultimate responsibility.”
Garrett, 52, holds a record of 77-59 in the regular season and 2-3 in the postseason in his nearly nine seasons at the helm in Dallas. He has one year remaining on his contract and could receive an extension before next season.
