Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett has yet again been unable to climb over the .500 hump thus far in 2013--which, unfortunately, is kind of the MO of the team in the Garrett era--but owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Thursday that Garrett will be brought back next season.
“Yes,” Jones said when asked if Garrett would be back, per ESPN Dallas.
In Garrett’s first two full seasons as Cowboys head coach, he went 16-16 and missed the playoffs by a game each year. Here in 2013, he’s 5-5, second in the NFC East but--as Jones is quick to point out--in the thick of the division race going into this weekend’s match-up with the Giants in East Rutherford, NJ.
"I'm disappointed that we don't have a better record, but he has got us in position to win the division and has got a team here that I firmly believe has the ability to be one of the better playing teams at the end," Jones said.
