On Wednesday, Jimmy Johnson used the Dan Patrick Show as a platform to blast the culture at his old stomping ground, Valley Ranch, these days. Specifically, Johnson said there was a a “country club” atmosphere, in which the players have no fear of negative consequences. As a result, Johnson speculated, Jason Garrett would be coaching for his job for the rest of the season, beginning with Sunday’s matchup with the Eagles in Philadelphia.
Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones quickly backed the team’s head coach, saying that any speculation about Garrett’s future with the Cowboys, at least at this point, was “ridiculous.”
Garrett himself has since responded as well, though he didn’t really say much aside from issuing a big, fat “No comment.”
“I don’t really have any comment on that,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We do things the way we do things here from a football standpoint. We believe we practice the right way and we meet the right way and we create the right atmosphere of urgency for our players."
“It’s what I learned as a player and a coach in this league and that’s what we’re trying to create here with this football team.”
