If the Dallas Cowboys want Monte Kiffin out as defensive coordniator, they’ll have to fire him themselves, as Kiffin said Sunday night that he has no plans to retire.
“I don’t plan on retiring,” Kiffin told reporters after the 24-22 loss to the Eagles Sunday night, per the Dallas Morning News. “I’d like to keep on coaching. I’m proud to be a Cowboy.”
Statistically speaking, Kiffin’s defense in 2013 was was the worst in the 50-plus-year history of the franchise. But owner Jerry Jones doesn’t plan on focusing too much on this season--which he seems to view as an aberration--when he does his evaluation this offseason.
“I wouldn’t evaluate Monte Kiffin without taking in consideration our circumstances this year with injuries, his ability to put in place guys coming in and out on a weekly basis,” Jones said. “One thing about having the career that he’s had is you get to look at the whole career when you’re looking at it and so, no, I wouldn’t evaluate him based on this year.”
