Jones says Johnson will stay in Dallas

January 02, 1994|By Dallas Morning News

DALLAS -- Responding strongly to remarks in which coach Jimmy Johnson said he would have interest if a team such as the expansion Jacksonville Jaguars approached him, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones insisted Johnson would complete his contract in Dallas.

Jones said Johnson is committed to the Cowboys through the 1999 season under terms of a fully guaranteed contract that will provide him more than $1 million per season.

Jones also said the decision is not Johnson's to make.

"It's up to me," Jones said. "I have no intention of making a coaching change. To have this as an issue is a joke."
