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.

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.

  1. If Jerry Jones would get the hell out of trying to coach the team and let the real coach do his job and Jerry Jones just be the owner and GM. Than maybe the cowboys can win so Jerry Jones stay the hell out trying to be a coach and let the coach be a coach.

  2. I don’t know if Jerry Jones would take Jason Witten either but one ex-cowboy that I know I’d love to see as a coach would be Tony Romo. Now he is football smart all the way. Just listen to him on air and he already knows the plays before the teams actually run the plays. That’s my vote – Tony Romo !!!
