Jerry Jones: Jason Garrett is “not coaching for his job this year”

After two straight seasons with an 8-8 record, you would think that Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett would be on the hot seat in 2013.

According to Jeremy Ryan of the NFL Network, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told Albert Breer that Garrett is “not coaching for his job this year.”

I believe the reason Jones is keeping Garrett around is that he doesn’t push back the way most head coaches would.  It’s all about control with Jones.  And Garrett seems to be very passive which is perfect for the way the team is run.

At the end of the day, the Cowboys won’t be successful again until Jerry gives up his general manager role and empowers his head coach.
