It was only a matter of time before rumors that the Dallas Cowboys were actively searching for a new head coach surfaced, again.
According to a “source,” if the Cowboys miss the playoffs current head coach Jason Garrett will be fired.
The “source” said that the Cowboys have quietly started searching for a new coach, Jerry Jones has been “kicking the tires on seeing who will be available,” and that there will be a coaching change if Dallas doesn’t make the playoffs.
I think this is horse [expletive], pure speculation and totally uncalled for. Jones has been adamant in his support for his head coach and doesn’t appear to be ready to make any moves. This is also a bad rumor to start given the tragedy, which coach Garrett and the Cowboys have been dealing with.
Through it all coach Garrett’s leadership and resiliency have guided this team through adversity and, it may have taken a while, but the team has finally started to resemble the team people thought they would be in the off-season.
Take a look at what these Cowboys have had to overcome and you’ll realize that the team is executing better, playing more disciplined, and overcoming injuries on a weekly basis.
Even if the Cowboys miss the playoffs coach Garrett isn’t going anywhere, unless Jones wants to start the process all over again.
What I want to know is, why this “source” won’t attach their name to these allegations? Probably because many people, myself included, would tell him or her that he or she is full of it.
