Report: Cowboys not expected to make changes with assistant coaches
When #Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said there would be no coaching change involving Jason Garrett today, you can extend that to assistant coaches. I’m told no changes are expected for the assistants today, either.

After the Cowboys lost to the Buffalo Bills on Thanksgiving there were some questions if the team would move on from Jason Garrett, but Jerry Jones made it clear that he would stay on.
That doesn’t mean that they are safe for the rest of the season or moving forward, but Jones said it was not the right time to make a change and he was focused on getting the team back on track to make a Super Bowl run.
“This is not the time for me [to make a coaching change],” Jones said outside the locker room with tears in his eyes via ESPN. “I’m looking ahead at another ballgame. I’m looking ahead at winning four or five straight and helping write a story they will talk about, how it looks like you’re down and out. And I mean that. That’s the way that I’m operating. Every decision that I make over the next month will be with an eye in mind to get us in the Super Bowl now.”
The Cowboys have struggled this season against good competition but they still have six wins which is good enough for first place in the NFC East. It still will probably take a deep run in the playoffs for Garrett and some of the assistants to keep their jobs long term, but right now the focus is to just get in the playoffs.
