Cowboys owner Jerry Jones sheds light on Mike McCarthy’s future

Clearing all the uncertainties regarding Mike McCarthy’s future as head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Jerry Jones came forward and clarified his stance on the situation. Jones stated that he is really pleased with his current performance as the head coach, especially after the team has been doing so well. He also clarified that Mike McCarthy is also signed until next year and is not leaving anytime soon.

“I was a little surprised,” Jones said. “I don’t know how I could be any clearer. Coach McCarthy is under contract for next year. So, that’s not an issue. Secondly, I couldn’t be more pleased with what he’s done, and how he’s coached. … I certainly haven’t sat down here right in the middle of the playoffs and started talking to him about a contract. Why would you do that?”

“And by the way, he’s the busiest cat in all of Texas. … So, the last thing that I want to do is spend any time talking with him about these kinds of things, on agreements, extension of agreements, especially when I’ve got one. So, that’s it.”
