Jerry Jones Drops Jason Garrett Hint

Jerry Jones, despite maintaining that he is not far enough along in the process to determine that Jason Garrett will be his head coach moving forward, made several comments after the Cowboys’ win Sunday in Philadelphia that seem to suggest that he has in fact decided to remove Garrett's interim tag.

When asked whether his head coach would have power to hire the assistants, Jones slipped and tipped his hand.

"The answer is, when you say decision power, that is certainly something that Jason needs to have input in," said Jones, who elaborated by adding that Garrett had influence over several offensive assistants already on staff.

Garrett is the eighth head coach in team history. After Tom Landry served the club’s first 29 years in the position, Jones has had seven head coaches in 21 seasons.
