Michael Irvin for Head Coach

I do a lot of speculative posts on here, but I'm sure I am not the first person to think or say this.  Could you imagine Michael Irvin as the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys?  After seeing what he does on this show "4th and Long" I think he fits the mold of a great coach.

First off, I don't want to knock Wade Phillips, he's a great coach, but his main thing is Defense, and last I checked he is already filling the Defensive Coordinator role.  One thing for any of the Wade Phillips haters out there, did you know that the Cowboys Ranked 8th in the NFL for total yards allowed per game last season?  Did you know that only one other team in the NFL kept more teams out of the end zone for entire games last season than the Cowboys?  The Steelers were the only team and they kept I believe 4 teams out of the end zone while the cowboys kept 3 out.

Wade Phillips is a qualified coach and we are definitely better with him than without him.  But why not make him the assistant head coach and Defensive Coordinator and then bring in Irvin to be the head coach?  Look at what he does to motivate players and the attitude and leadership that he can bring to the field.  Not only that but the amount of respect that each of the players would automatically have for him as a Hall of Fame receiver.  He also has been down the road of bad decisions so he can help those players to realize where they need to get to and help them along as a head coach should we get anyone like that again.

I am not saying to make this guy the Head Coach next season but at least give him a look.  I think he has earned it, plus he already has the respect of Jerry Jones and a great relationship with him too.  I say give him a position somewhere on the team at least if not Head Coach.  Make him the GM or something.  Michael Irvin deserves to be on the squad and receive a ring when the Cowboys win their next Super Bowl as I am sure that he would help to lead them to another if on the squad somewhere.
