NFL Trade Rumors:
Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported on Sunday that Mike Holmgren would be interested in taking over as the Cowboys head coach, should the job become available.
Holmgren reportedly likes their roster and the fact that he does have ties to owner Jerry Jones suggests that it’s at least a remote possibility.
“Of course, Mike Holmgren is a heck of a coach,” said Jerry Jones while appearing on 105.3 the Fan, per the Plain Dealer. ”But the facts are that Jason Garrett gives us an outstanding chance to be what we want to be. So, there you have it. I wouldn’t comment one way or the other there with Mike.“
Jason Garrett has come under a lot scrutiny again this season, so another disappointing finish could force Jones to reconsider him as their head coach. It’s worth noting that the Cowboys are 2 wins out of first place in the NFC East, so there’s still plenty of time for them to make this a race with the Giants.
