Jerry Jones says Jason Garrett would have 'five offers for head coaching' if Cowboys fired him

Jerry Jones addresses rumblings of Lincoln Riley as next Cowboys coach

Jerry Jones is still standing by his right-hand man.

The Cowboys owner said he doesn’t plan on making any huge changes this offseason, despite being bested by the Rams in the playoffs last weekend.

“I like the direction we’re going in. I don’t have any comments this morning about extensions, because my options are open,” Jones said on his weekly radio show on 105.3 The Fan. “Nobody knows, because I don’t know this morning, and I’m the last say.”

Garrett is one of the most controversial men on the Cowboys’ staff, with many voices resounding over the years that he can’t finish a season well. Jones said if the Cowboys were to let Garrett go, he would be hired quickly by another team.

“If Jason Garrett had been out on the market two weeks ago, he would’ve had five offers for head coaching. I know that.” Jones said.

Garrett has been the Cowboys’ coach since November 2010, when he was moved to interim status after Wade Phillips’ firing. He was promoted the following season to full-time head coach.

In that time, the Cowboys have been to five total playoff games posting a 2-3 record.

As to whether player changes will come about, Jones remained coy on specific plans with specific people.

 “This is a very talented group and I think we can get better,” Jones said. “We might lose some players that our fans may have a concern about, but in general, we can upgrade from players getting better.”
