No, he doesn't, but that's where your Jerry hatred takes you.
There's no indication that Jones wanted anything more than for Garrett to succeed as a head coach and gave him the opportunity to do it his way. Keeping him as head coach says that Jones still believes in Garrett as a head coach, but he's stepping in as a GM to take away what he saw wasn't working ... Garrett's play-calling, if that's what Jones is doing.
If Garrett isn't willingly giving that up, then as a GM, Jerry should say,"Jason, you are the head coach I want for this team, but I'm going to have to replace you as play-caller because we're simply not getting it done."
Garrett has every right to say, I'm not comfortable with that, and Jones can move on. But Garrett also has the right to say Jones might be right and look for the best fit to work under him as head coach.
As a GM, Jones has the right to do this if he thinks it's best for the team. That is
part of his job.
