Jerry Jones Lets It Be Known, Other Coaches Want The Cowboys Job

So, Jason Garrett hasn't even coached his first game as the Dallas Cowboys head coach, and already Jerry Jones has turned up the heat just a tad. We all know Jason Garrett has walked into a very difficult situation, he's inherited a dispirited team that currently has a 1-7 record, and for his first game he gets the New York Giants. The G-men are leading the division, are part of the NFC elite as it stand today, and absolutely crushed the Seattle Seahawks last week. So what could be worse?

Jerry Jones let it be known that former Super Bowl-winning head coaches were inquiring about the job even before he fired Wade Phillips and promoted Jason Garrett.

"I will say that before I made the decision with Wade Phillips, I had Super Bowl-winning coaches solicit this job," Jones said.

There's a handful of Super Bowl coaches out there, but you can eliminate some as the likely callers. Jones wouldn't detail who has contacted him, but Nick Eatman speculates.

That would narrow things down to Tony Dungy, who recently said he wasn’t interested in the job, along with Brian Billick, Jon Gruden and Bill Cowher.
