Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Thursday that Jason Garrett will return as the head coach in 2014.
Jones admitted he is disappointed with the team's 5-5 record heading into Sunday's game with the New York Giants.
Jones made it clear to reporters that no matter how the final six weeks play out, Garrett will not lose his job.
"It's not that for Jason,'' Jones said. "I'm disappointed we don't' have a better record, but he has got us in position to win the division and got a team here I firmly believe has the ability to be one of the better playing teams at the end.
"We're positioned to get in the playoffs. We see logically how to get in the playoffs. We have that for all practical purposes in our control. Now, that's a pretty good spot to be in after 10 games.
"A lot of this story is to be played out. It does not have a bearing on whether or not he will be our coach next year. It has no bearing on that.''
So Garrett will be the Cowboys head coach in 2014?
"Yes,'' Jones replied. "Yes.''
Garrett is 26-24 as the Cowboys' head coach.
