Report: Mike Holmgren would be interested in coaching the Cowboys

We mentioned earlier that even though Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has come out and stated that Jason Garrett will be back in 2014 no matter what,  many people around the league don’t believe him.

According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports,  former Packers and Seahawks head coach Mike Holmgren would be interested in becoming Dallas’ next head man if they do get rid of Garret.

Sources continue to maintain that former Packers and Seahawks coach Mike Holmgren has a good relationship with Jones and would not have reservations about a job like the Cowboys. He and Jones spent years together on the competition committee, and other bigger names, like Jon Gruden, would not be a fit with Jones.

Jones could possibly look at the college ranks, or hire a low-profile coordinator again, but if he truly does want to go back to having a proven entity in the role — something he hasn’t really had since he and Bill Parcells parted ways — Holmgren could be the best fit, and Holmgren remains open to returning to the league in various capacities, sources said. Last year the Raiders approached Holmgren about a front-office position and some close to him believe he would return to the sidelines for a job like the Cowboys.

Until Jones stops controlling every aspect of his team and starts to show his head coach some respect,  the Cowboys aren’t going to win another Super Bowl.

    The problem is we don’t need Holmgren let him go join the Bill Parcell’s has been club and retire.

    What the Cowboys need is NO INJURIES. No coach I know of can bring this in his pocket.

      Unless you get rid of Tony Romo you’ll never hoist another Lombardi Trophy!

    As a former high school coach, I understand the hard work that goes into coaching. But even in H. S. if you lose, you lose your job. Garret has lost; even if they make the playoffs, they won’t do anything. Now, the only coach worth trying to get is, I believe, is currently in New Orleans. Jones could have had him several times now, but he wants to in control; that is more important to him than winning.

    Jerry Jones needs to get out of the personnel business. Its become painfully obvious that Jerry can’t select players that will mesh with each other. All of his teams have been disjointed. Tex Shram had a twenty year winning record. Jerry needs a real football man to lead his team. His players don’t like the fact that jerry is also the owner.
