Jerry Jones: It's all about Jason Garrett with me

By Calvin Watkins

There was a report over the weekend that had former NFL coach Mike Holmgren interested in the Dallas Cowboys job should it become vacant.

Jason Garrett is the current coach, and it doesn't appear he's going anywhere. Holmgren, who has a close relationship with Jerry Jones, denied Monday that he was interested in a job that's not even available.

Jones was asked about Holmgren on Tuesday during his twice-weekly radio show on KRLD-FM.

"I won't and can't get into that kind of conversation because of how fired up I am about the future of Jason," Jones said. "The future is now, but also I am fired up about him and what he can be coaching the Dallas Cowboys. Mike Holmgren ... I can't tell you on a individual basis how much I respect him. He's everything you would want as far as a coach is concerned and I appreciate, it was a compliment, when he was talking about how he was impressed with our talent and the fact that we could work together. And that's just the case. But make no mistake about it. And Mike doesn't need me to say what a great guy he is. Our fans probably need to hear he's a great guy. Bottom line, it's all about Jason with me."
