Stephen Jones told the radio station on Monday that there would be "absolutely no change" in the head coaching position despite the 4-9 record nearing the end of the season.
"I am surprised someone would question these unprecedented situations that everybody's been in," he said referencing the pandemic. "We have the utmost confidence this ship is going to be righted quickly. Mike's going to be the leader of this group. He's, certainly, a great head coach. I think we're going to see that going forward. He's accomplished a lot, and he's going to accomplish a lot more before it's all said and done."
