Jason Witten Responds To Becoming Next Cowboys Coach
Jason Witten responds to becoming the next Cowboys coach in a recent interview.
Witten, 37, initially retired in 2017 to become a host on ESPN’s Monday Night football. After an underwhelming and extremely disappointing stint, he left the broadcast booth to return to Dallas as the team’s tight end.
With his playing career likely ending sooner rather than later, many have been speculating on what Witten’s next move will be. Clearly being an analyst is out. So what is next?
Well, apparently some people see him as a potential head coach in the league. Speaking to reporters this week, Witten acknowledged that coaching in the NFL was in fact something that interested him.
When asked if he would like to coach the Cowboys, Witten declined to answer and left the locker room. https://t.co/jFq6LtZkTt

Given the fact that Jason Garrett’s departure is viewed as something of an inevitability, the natural follow up to that was whether Garrett wanted to be the next Cowboys head coach.
According to Ed Werder, when pressed on whether he would consider taking over the Dallas head coaching gig, Witten refused to answer.
Given all the big name professional and collegiate coaches who would sell a kidney at the opportunity to coach the Cowboys, it is unlikely that Jerry Jones would settle for someone like Witten anyway.
So far this year Witten has recorded 57 receptions for 491 yards and four scores.
