Cowboys owner Jerry Jones insists that Jason Garrett is his coach not only for 2013, but for many years beyond that.
In an interview on the Cowboys’ website, Jones said Garrett is in it for the long haul.
“I saw things in our head coach that really give me a lot of promise for not only 2013 but for years to come,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I’m excited about Jason Garrett.”
Dallas fired several assistant coaches after the season and hired several new ones, and Jones also said that it was Garrett who made the decisions on the Cowboys’ coaching staff shakeup.
“He did the evaluations,” Jones said. “He basically said, ‘Jerry here’s who I want to get.’”
Jones said it was “pretty expensive” to buy out the contracts of the fired assistants and then hire new assistants, but he believes it was worth it. And he believes he won’t have to buy out a contract of a head coach in a year.
