Wolves CEO has backed manager Mick McCarthy to go where only Dave Jones has gone before, and take Wanderers into the Premiership.
Following another failed campaign, the finger of blame has been pointed straight at the straight talking Yorkshireman, with the inevetable calls for sacrificial offerings foloowing close behind.
'I think Mick has done a great job," Jez told the E & S.
"I can`t see any reason why he wouldn`t be here next season.
"The club has historically got rid of managers too quickly and that word patience both inside the boardroom and on the terraces is really important.
"Because if we`re going to try to build something, it takes time.'
McCarthy's first season in charge was one of over achievment, and a bonus in terms of making the play offs.
This season, Wolves missed out by a margin of two goals.
McCarthy's third season is now crucial to the sides ongoing development.
The club have a nucleus of a very good side, but promotion is the only hope Wolves have to hold onto the likes of SEB, Kights, Wayne Hennessey, and the two Georges.
Which is all in hand according to Jez.
'Sometimes we have to say 'we know what we`re doing, we`ve got a plan, we`re sticking to it and hopefully the fans can stick with us. By and large, they have done." he said.
Given the right backing in the summer, Wolves will start the new season in the list of promotion favourites once more.
And with it, as was the case this season, comes raised expectation.
Not a bad thing in many senses, but when it manifests itself in frustration, finger pointing, abuse of home players it's effect can only be negative.
Here's hoping it's third time lucky Mick!
