IRVING, Texas — Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has had nearly two months to get a head start on hiring his next coach. He says he's put it to good use.
Although Jones says Monday he hasn't contacted anyone — even informally — he has been doing background work on his list of candidates. He says he will have fewer candidates than last time, when he had around 10. He also offers no timetable.
Interim coach Jason Garrett seems to have a head start, especially having gone 4-3 with a club that had been 1-7. Jones calls the team's loss at Arizona on Saturday night a "neutral" in his evaluation.
Asked about former Super Bowl-winning coaches on the market, Jones notes that no coach has ever won a Super Bowl with two franchises.
