OXNARD, Calif. (AP) — Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones defended Mike McCarthy following an offseason of speculation about the coach’s future.

At a news conference prior to the start of training camp, Jones said McCarthy was brought back for a third season leading the team because he offered the best chance for the Cowboys to win a Super Bowl.

Despite leading Dallas to a 12-5 record and the NFC East title last season, there were questions about McCarthy’s job security after losing 23-17 to the San Francisco 49ers in a wild-card playoff game.
