Jerry Jones Hiring Unconventional Dallas Cowboys Coach
Jerry Jones is hiring an unconventional Dallas Cowboys coach to take over for Jason Garrett.
Less than 24 hours after Dallas found itself officially out of the playoffs, Garrett’s fate is all but sealed.
Although an official announcement of his banishment has yet to be made, Jones has indicated to multiple sources that he will seek out a new head coach.
A lot of very popular names have been thrown out as potential candidates for the Cowboys’ looming vacancy. Guys like Urban Meyer, Lincoln Riley and Matt Rhule have all been suggested.
As it turns out, though, Jones is not necessarily looking to make the flashiest hire possible.
While we await Jerry Jones’ decision on Jason Garrett, it is worth noting that Jones said last night he does not feel pressure from other teams with current openings pursuing new coaches. So could be he’s targeting someone different than others or believes in appeal of #Cowboys.

According to ESPN NFL insider Ed Werder, “Jones said last night he does not feel pressure from other teams with current openings pursuing new coaches. So could be he’s targeting someone different than others.”
There is currently a mad scramble among teams like the New York Giants, Cleveland Browns and Carolina Panthers to get their guys.
Experienced former head coaches and coordinators like Mike McCarthy and Josh McDaniels are getting multiple calls from several teams.
However, Jones’ laid back approach to this entire process is very interesting.
Is he really targeting someone so unconventional that he does not feel the need to compete with other teams for him?
It sure seems that way. One way or the other, we’ll get our answer soon enough.
