IRVING, Texas — Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones said Thursday that Jason Garrett will remain the team’s head coach in 2014.
Two of the Cowboys’ top offensive weapons were both approving of that news when they were informed by reporters later in the day.
“It’s good,” Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo said. “We’re continuing to try and win games and Jason’s done a great job putting us in position to have that opportunity, and I think he’s done a great job. Anytime that happens, it’s always just a positive.”
Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant said he loves Garrett, calling him “one of the best coaches I’ve ever been around.”
“Man, coach Garrett has been great to me since day one,” Bryant said. “I’m speaking for me, the relationship me and coach Garrett have. He always stays on me because he believes in me, and I thank him for it. I can’t thank him enough. He is a people person and he loves his players. He’ll do whatever for us. He’s always checking on us. He sees how our day goes. I know everybody around the league don’t get that. That’s coach Garrett.”
Bryant added: “He does a great job with us. If Mr. Jones believes in him, I know we believe in him as players. He’s A1. He’s A1.”
