Jones also reportedly wants Garrett to fire his brother, John, who is the team's tight ends coach. John Garrett is the team's passing game coordinator. Mike Florio of NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk reported that Jones is asking Garrett to stop calling the offensive plays and fire his brother as a way of getting Garrett to resign.

  • Jerry Jones should sell the Cowboys!!
  • Dallas was once a proud football city. Jerry Jones has taken that away from us. The days of this city's football glory are 'gone with the wind". All of this firing and scapegoating is futile. We do it over again every year. Jerry Jones is not going to sell his one claim to fame ever...We Cowboy fans are doomed.

From a Jack to a King: Dallas Cowboys hire Monte Kiffin to replace Rob Ryan

I’ll be out of work for like five minutes.” Ryan, true to his genetic predisposition, was always one to over-promise and under...
