Jerry Jones has discussed whether or not he will keep head coach Mike McCarthy around if the Cowboys get eliminated in the first round.
The Cowboys owner backed McCarthy during an interview on 105.3 on Tuesday after being asked if a loss in the Wild-Card round against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers would affect the head coach’s status within the team.
“No. I don’t even want to … No. That’s it,” Jones said. “I don’t need to go into all the pluses or minuses. I’ve got a lot more to evaluate Mike McCarthy on than this playoff game.”

The Cowboys have become synonymous with disappointment over the years but there is real hope they could achieve something special this season. Of course, such expectations form the basis for disappointment…
The last coach to take Dallas to the playoffs in two consecutive terms was Chan Gailey in 1998-99. He was fired after losing in to the Minnesota Vikings in the first round, having gone 18-14 in two years.
Jones has since expressed regret over axing Gailey. He seems to be keen on avoiding a similar mistake with McCarthy but the coach could steer clear of the possibility by simply beating the Bucs in his next game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
