Jason Garrett need not worry about job security.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Thursday that Garrett will be back as head coach in 2014 no matter how the team fares in its last six games.

Although he’s “disappointed” that the Cowboys aren’t better than 5-5, they’re in the thick of things in a dismal division.

“Now that’s a pretty good spot to be in after 10 games,” Jones told reporters. “A lot of this story is to be played out. It does not have a bearing on whether or not he will be our coach next year. It has no bearing on that.”

Asked if Garrett would be back as coach, he answered, “yes.”

Under Garrett, Cowboys are 26-24 and presently are trail the Philadelphia Eagles by one-half game in the NFC East Division. Garrett, who became coach midway through the 2010 season, have not made the playoffs since 2009 and have finished 8-8 the last two seasons. The Cowboys have a big game Sunday against the 4-6 New York Giants in MetLife Stadium.
