The Dallas Cowboys were happy to hear owner Jerry Jones declare that Jason Garrett will return as head coach in 2014.
“It’s good,” said quarterback Tony Romo, per the Dallas Morning News. “We’re continuing to try and win games and Jason’s done a great job putting us in position to have that opportunity, and I think he’s done a great job. Anytime that happens, it’s always just a positive.”
Garrett is 5-5 on the year, he went 8-8 in each of his first two full seasons as head coach and he’s never led the team to the playoffs. But since 1997, the Cowboys are a .500 team, meaning--unfortunately--this is pretty much par for the course. And as Jerry is always quick to point out, in each of those 8-8 seasons, Dallas was a win away from a playoff berth.
“Man, coach Garrett has been great to me since day one,” said receiver Dez Bryant. “I’m speaking for me, the relationship me and coach Garrett have. He always stays on me because he believes in me, and I thank him for it. I can’t thank him enough. He is a people person and he loves his players. He’ll do whatever for us. He’s always checking on us. He sees how our day goes. I know everybody around the league don’t get that. That’s coach Garrett.”
