The Dallas Cowboys are always the source of drama in the NFL, so there is no surprise that the Cowboys have been linked to hot head coaching candidates Mike Holmgren and Sean Payton. Of course, there is one problem. The Cowboys currently have a head coach in Jason Garrett and team owner Jerry Jones remains committed to Garrett.
Jones was speaking on the radio Tuesday and addressed the Holmgren situation and his commitment to Garrett.
“I won’t and can’t get into that kind of conversation because of how fired up I am about the future of Jason. The future is now, but also I am fired up about him and what he can be coaching the Dallas Cowboys. Mike Holmgren . . . I can’t tell you on a individual basis how much I respect him,” Jones said.
” He’s everything you would want as far as a coach is concerned and I appreciate, it was a compliment, when he was talking about how he was impressed with our talent and the fact that we could work together. And that’s just the case. But make no mistake about it. And Mike doesn’t need me to say what a great guy he is. Our fans probably need to hear he’s a great guy.
“Bottom line, it’s all about Jason with me.”
Of course, Jones has expressed his commitment to certain individuals in the past only to change his mind and send them out the door.
It is not out of the question that Jones could be using his great relationships with Holmgren and Payton to line up the next head coach of the Cowboys organization.
