Jerry Jones Says He Won’t Fire Any Coaches During Bye Week
Jerry Jones made his usual weekly appearance on his radio show, and addressed the question of whether or not he would consider making any coaching changes during the bye week.
The questions came after the Cowboys gave up over 620 yards in an embarrassing loss to the New Orleans Saints.
Jones was adamant on his radio show Tuesday morning that “defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin wouldn’t be a midseason departure and coach Jason Garrett would not seize play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Bill Callahan.”
“Say it any way you want to, I’m not even going to address — really I’m not — the coaching staff as to whether they’re safe or they’re not,” Jones said on KRLD-FM. “We’re 5-5. We’re tied for the lead in our division. We’ve got players coming back. We’ve got one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League. We’re off of a rough loss.
“That doesn’t call for major changes out here at all.”
Jones firmly answered “no” when asked about the potential for change in the offensive play-calling duties. Garrett gave up those duties this offseason at the urging of Jones.
