Jerry Jones: Jason Garrett will remain head coach in Week 15
The Dallas Cowboys look like they’re folding with four losses in their past five games, but Jerry Jones still does not plan to make a head coaching change.
Jones spoke with reporters after the Cowboys’ 31-24 loss to the Chicago Bears on Thursday night and said Jason Garrett would continue to be the head coach next week.
Jerry Jones: "We'll line them up here next week, we're gonna go practice and we're gonna try to win a football game. Everybody that's in here that's healthy will be playing and everybody who is in here coaching will be coaching. We just got to play better."

Unless Garrett comes down with some serious illness, it sounds like he will continue. And that means Jones is sticking by his word.
Jones has said he will not fire Garrett during the season, although he has not given the coach any endorsement beyond the season.
One has to wonder what good it does to say you will stand by a coach for the remainder of the season but not anything beyond that? The message to the players becomes: why should I listen to this guy when he won’t even be around next year? Jones doesn’t seem to realize the negative effect his words, though he does seem to be seeing it through the poor product on the field.
