Just weeks after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones publicly said that he hasn’t even been thinking about Jason Garrett’s contract status, executive vice president Stephen Jones has declared that yes, the team wants to bring Garrett back in 2015.
As of now, Garrett’s deal is set to expire at the end of the season.
“Jason not only was qualified when he took the job, but he’s improves every day, every week, every month, every year,” Stephen Jones told 1310-AM The Ticket this week, via the Dallas Morning News. “You know, one of the things you fear is that you train a guy up and then he leaves and he goes on and he’s even better for the next team than he was for you.
"I think Jason has grown leaps and bounds. We are so comfortable--you know, comfortable can be a bad word, you want to be on edge too--but I really think Jason is the right guy for this job."
With last week’s victory over the Bears, the Cowboys went to 9-4 and clinched a the first winning season of the Garrett era thus far.
"Obviously it’s an improvement this year and an improvement at a time when a lot of people didn’t think we would improve," Stephen Jones said. "They actually thought we might go backwards and here we are at nine wins with three games to go. We’ve got a lot of work to do. But I really think Jason is the right guy for this job, and I know Jerry thinks the same thing. I certainly see Jason being a big part of our future.”
