Ever since Bill Parcells retired, Jerry Jones seems to be doing everything out of whack. First, he hires a new offensive coordinator, Jason Garrett. Garrett was hired to help groom Tony Romo. Then, he begins his head coach search, where the front-runner appears to be Norv Turner, whom they want to hire to groom Tony Romo. Why they need to hire 2 coaches to groom Romo is a bit beyond me.
Apparently, since Troy Aikman is on board with the hirings, most other people are as well. The local media seems to be on board because they are friendly with Norv Turner, and can call him up on his cell when news breaks.
It seems as if Jerry is trying to get back to the good old days when they won three Super Bowls in the mid-nineties. Personally, I don’t think Norv is a bad hire, I’m just wondering where the big names are. This is supposed to be one of the premiere coaching jobs in the country. Right now the candidates include Wade Phillips, Mike Singletary, Gary Gibbs, and if they can’t find someone, Jason Garrett would be promoted. No big names there.
Is Jerry mismanaging the process, or has he turned the franchise into something that big names would not want to coach? It seemed as if he and Bill got along well, and Bill was able to get what ever he wanted (The exception being T.O.). Did Jerry get tired of not getting the credit (or blame)? Is he really trying to get back to the days where he ran the show?
Who knows, maybe Jerry could just coach the team himself.
