Dec. 11 (UPI) -- Despite being listed as the National Football League's worst pass defense, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is still backing up his defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin.

During a talk radio appearance Jones gave Kiffin a vote of confidence.

The Dallas Cowboys defense has given up 490 yards or more in a game five times this season and currently are ranked last in the league in total defense.

Still Jones' comments show support for Kiffin. “To fix what we’re doing, there’s nobody I’d rather have than [Kiffin] and Rod Marinelli,” Jones said. “First of all, [Kiffin] knows what’s happening more than anyone. If there are adjustments to be made, he’s the right man for the job.”
