DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Despite his team's struggles, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones reiterated his belief that Jason Garrett wouldn't have a problem getting a job on the open market should he become available.

"I have felt that we've got a lot invested in Jason Garrett. He's had a lot of years that he's been a part of the Cowboys. And he's involved into what I think is a top coach. He would be a very sought-after coach if he were out here in the open market," Jones said Tuesday on Ben and Skin on 105.3 The Fan. "He brings a lot to the table. And I can genuinely say that that is not a thought that I'm having so it would be unfair to our fans for me to have any indication about what I may think the future is as far as head coach.

"Everybody's aware this is the last year of his agreement but that really just means that we can all sit down and take a look at things at the end of the year. That was the case when he won the first three ballgames and still the case today after losing the last three."

Jones made a similar statement to Shan and RJ about his head coach following the Cowboys loss last season to the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Divisional Round of the playoffs.

"If Jason Garrett had been out on the market two weeks ago, he would’ve had five offers for head coaching. I know that,” Jones said when asked about a possible extension for Garrett.
