Jerry Jones was asked earlier in the week about Jason Garrett being listed among the NFL head coaches most-likely to be fired during the season. The Dallas Cowboys’ owner had a message for anyone thinking of betting on that.
“Don’t bet any money on that happening, you’ll lose it,” Jones said on 105.3 The Fan.
Fast forward to Sunday night and once again, Jones is being asked about Garrett’s future. The Cowboys fell to the Jets on Sunday afternoon, prompting questions about the head coaching position.
Jones told reporters that he’s not even close to thinking about any of that.
“I’m disappointed. I didn’t think this would happen,” Jones said of the loss, before adding, “I’m not even coming close to those future type considerations.”
Jerry Jones: “I’m disappointed. I didn’t think this would happen.”
He was not putting the loss solely on the coaches. He said it was problems across the board. When specifically asked about Jason Garrett’s future: “I’m not even coming close to those future type considerations.”

Garrett won’t be fired during the season, barring something drastic. He’s in the final year of his contract, though, and he probably won’t be keeping his job without a deep playoff run.
Some within the NFL believe the Cowboys need to at least make the NFC Championship Game in order for Garrett to be back in 2020.
Dallas will look to get back in the win column a week from tonight. The Cowboys will host the Eagles on Sunday Night Football.
