According to Ed Werder, the Cowboys aren’t planning to make any changes to the coaching staff this week after owner Jerry Jones expressed displeasure with the team’s coaching following a 13-9 loss to the Patriots Sunday.
Werder specifically says Cowboys ST coordinator Keith O’Quinn will stay on despite Jones calling out Dallas’ special teams unit following the game.
Jones has been publicly critical of his coaching staff after losses in recent weeks. Dallas entered the year with Super Bowl expectations, but the team currently has a 6-5 record and is only one game ahead of the Eagles for the NFC East division lead.
“I don’t think there’s a game that a coaching staff has … that it couldn’t do better in,” Jones said after Sunday’s game via NFL Media’s Judy Battista. “I just don’t like it that we’ve got so many as I’m standing here tonight.”
Cowboys HC Jason Garrett is coaching out the final year of his deal and there have been rumors that Garrett has to lead Dallas to the playoffs at an absolute minimum in order for Jones to extend his contract.
If Dallas moves on from Garrett, Jones is expected to have interest in Oklahoma HC Lincoln Riley for the job.
