Jerry Jones: Coaches are staying to build on 2014 success

IRVING, Texas – The Dallas Cowboys will have a news conference Thursday to "re-introduce" Jason Garrett, Rod Marinelli and Scott Linehan as head coach, defensive coordinator and offensive playcaller.

Linehan will get the offensive coordinator title that Bill Callahan held in 2014, according to a source, which is the largest clue that Callahan will not be back in 2015.

Speaking on 105.3 The Fan in Dallas on Thursday morning, owner and general manager Jerry Jones did not want to take away from the pomp and circumstance of a news conference to confirm the deals, but kind of gave it away later when he was asked if he believes the Cowboys are on the verge of Super Bowl success.

“Our system will keep you from totally thinking, 'Just wait 'til next year,'” Jones said. “This system humbles you a little bit there just out of turnover in the roster and that’s probably not a bad thing. But there’s turnover and so we’ve got a lot about this team that needs work and we all probably clearly have seen it and now what is there with our defense and we’ve got some things we can do to get better offensively. But the key thing is, let me say, this our chance of building on what we’ve got – our chance to stand on the shoulders of this great season – is the No. 1 thing that is allowing us to keep the coaching staff together. The coaches wanted to be a part of what we’ve got to do over the next few years.”
