There have been but eight head coaches in the Cowboys’ 53 year history. All but one of them have been hired by the current ownership. The first coach, Tom Landry, lasted 29 years on the job. That is longer than the rest of them put together.
With so much controversy and uncertainty swirling about Jason Garrett, the current head coach, I though it appropriate timing to rank the men that have stood at the helm of America’s team. I do so with the disclaimer and acknowledgement that, since the departure of Jimmy Johnson, only one man has really been at the controls. The inimitable, incredible, indescribable “Coach” Jerry Jones.
Does anyone really believe that the man currently on the coliseum (Cowboys Stadium) floor, fighting off wild beasts and other gladiators with a Texas tooth pick and a prayer, is really making any of the offseason decisions? Does anyone really believe it was Garrett’s call on the firing of defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, the hiring of Monte Kiffin or the apparentl...

If Jerry Jones were to come out and fire himself as the general manager of the Dallas Cowboys, I believe these would be the words of the pompous owner. “Jerry Jones the owner, must fire Jerry Jones the GM.”
He refused to talk about the firing of coaches but Jones, Jason Garrett, Tony Romo and other members of the Dallas Cowboys are furious at the results of the 2012 NFL season...

The Dallas Cowboys have added another coach to their defensive staff. After adding Monte Kiffin as their new defensive coordinator the Cowboys have added Rod Marinelli to be their defensive line coach.

The Dallas Cowboys are interviewing former Arkansas and Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt for one of their openings on the offensive side of the ball, sources told FoxSportsSouthwest.com. Nutt has been seeking employment in the NFL and it makes sense that he would start by talking to his longtime friend Jerry Jones.
Nutt would likely end up as tight ends coach, although Jason Garrett...
