Jason Garrett said Wednesday that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones' loyalty makes Garrett want to "run through the wall for him."
Per the Dallas Morning News, Jones continues to stick with Garrett because he believes the investment will eventually pay off with postseason success. Only seven coaches have been with their current teams longer than Garrett has been coaching the Cowboys.
"It means a great deal," Garrett said of Jones' loyalty. "It means a great deal. He's been an outstanding owner and certainly a huge figure in this league for a long time. He loves football. He loves the NFL. He certainly loves the Cowboys. Anybody who has had the good fortune to play for him or coach for him, they feel that. He has been a loyal guy to a lot of people in this organization for a long time. It certainly makes you want to run through the wall for him."
Does Garrett feel he has rewarded Jones' loyalty?
"Each and every day I wake up trying to be the best coach I can be for this football team, making decisions and working the right way," Garrett said. "I will just continue to do that."
