Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones reiterated Sunday night that Jason Garrett would return as head coach after the franchise's third consecutive 8-8 finish but was noncommittal about potential changes with the coaching staff.
"I said that a month ago," Jones said when asked if he remained committed to Garrett as his coach following the Cowboys' 24-22 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, which marked the third straight season in which Dallas failed to win a de facto NFC East title game in Week 17. "I stand by what I said a month ago."
The Cowboys are 29-27 under Garrett, who took over when Wade Phillips was fired midway through the 2010 season and had the interim tag removed following that year. The Cowboys have missed the playoffs in each of the last four seasons, marking the longest postseason drought of Jones' 25-year tenure.
