Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is proud of his work as a general manager.
Despite the Cowboys not making the playoffs for the past three years and going 21-21 during that span, Jones patted himself on the back.
“The facts are I really do think, the way things have rolled out, I'm getting to do some of the best work that I've done, relatively speaking in my career, over these last several years,” Jones said Friday morning on KRLD-FM.
Jones has been general manager since 1997, going 133-133, according to ESPN Dallas.
Jones said he plans on being the general manager for the next 10 to 15 years and told the players that.
“Of course, I said it, and I really meant that, and just think about that a minute: Why wouldn't you?” Jones said. “One of the reasons that I, to some degree, have taken the risks that I have over the years, and kind of had the professional life that I followed, is so that I get to decide when enough is enough. God willing. So I do get to decide that.
“It's a certain part of working for yourself if you still are standing when the time comes. So I get to really make that decision, and I want to make it in a way that I think is in the best interest of the team, franchise and really our fans. A lot of people just need to hear me say I know it's in our best interest for us to operate the way we have.”
