Despite Dallas Cowboys General Manager/Owner Jerry Jones being loyal to Head Coach Jason Garrett, another first round playoff exit with one of the most talented rosters in football means that Jones will have to fire Garrett at some point. So, here are candidates to be the next head coach of the Dallas Cowboys in no order.
1.Lincoln Riley,Head Coach,Oklahoma
Since taking over for Bob Stoops, Riley has become one of if not the best offensive coach in college football. Riley coached two heisman winners in current NFL QBs Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. So, Cowboys fans (like me) would not mind hiring Riley as the new head coach.
2.Kellen Moore,Offensive Coordinator,Dallas Cowboys
Despite team struggles for Dallas, Moore has led Dallas QB Dak Prescott to a career year in his first year as offensive coordinator. But, not many think Moore is ready to coach the most valuable team in sports.
3.Urban Meyer,Former Head Coach,Ohio State (FOX CFB Analyst)
Urban Meyer may not return out of retirement but Dallas fans can dream of having one of the best college football coaches ever as the head man. While it would be great, I don’t see Meyer coming to the Big D.
