Jones makes Phillips’ extension official

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones announced Thursday morning that he signed coach Wade Phillips through the 2011 season. The Cowboys picked up the option for 2010 and added another season. Jones said the extension does not include an option year.

Jones made the announcement at the team’s end-of-season news conference.

“We made some changes last year, we went forward. We’ll make some more changes, we’ll address the same things and more than we did last year,” Phillips said. “I”m excited about being the coach here, it doesn’t matter if it’s one year or 10 years. With this team, right now, I feel very comfortable. I think we can go further, and I think we will go further.

“We’ve done a lot of good things, we’ve won a lot of games. I know I’ve said that, but that isn’t my goal. That’s not our goal. Our goal is to win the world championship, and that’s what I’m going to try to get done here. I think we have the team that can go forward and do that.”
