Cowboys' Jerry Jones Says He Will Not Give Up GM Duties

Jerry Jones, the owner and acting general manager for the Dallas Cowboys, told a Texas radio station that he would not consider giving up his front office duties, according to ESPN.

"The facts are that I've spent 22 years doing this exactly the same way," Jones said Tuesday on KRLD-FM, as transcribed by ESPN. "I've made a lot of changes from year to year as time goes along, but frankly, I know that when we do not have the kind of success, when we don't have expectations lived up to, the one that should get the most heat is the one that ultimately makes the decisions, period, with the Dallas Cowboys. And that's me."

"The thing you've got to realize is that when you have an owner that is full time as the owner, then you create a situation where you have as much turnover at GM as you do at coaching level," Jones said. "And I think that just deters from the mix."

The Cowboys loss Sunday eliminated them from the playoffs with an 8-8 record, marking the second consecutive year the team has failed to make the postseason. Despite having one of the greater dynasties in the history of the sport within the last 20 years, Dallas has failed to win more than one playoff game in the last 15 seasons.

Jones purchased the Cowboys in 1989 and took control of the general manager duties just several months later. As the general manager, Jones led Dallas to Super Bowl victories in 1992, 1993 and 1995.
