Next Head Coach and Next Year

Everyone brings up the fact that Jerry wouldn't want to hire a new head coach while not knowing what could happen next year with the CBA.

I want to throw out an opposing view.

What does a good head coach cost? $3-6 mil/year or so right? For Jerry, that's gotta be a drop in the bucket. Sure, no one wants to piss away that much money, but realistically, that is not much to the man who owns the Dallas Cowboys.

I think the advantages of bringing in a strong head coach, even if there isn't a season, or a shortened season, would be valuable:

  1. That gives the new coach plenty of time to analyze the current roster,
  2. plenty of time to figure out the best way to put the pieces into their scheme,
  3. plenty of time to pick their assistant/position coaches to put the schemes into place,
  4. plenty of time to look at the rookies from the 2011 draft.

This "head start" on getting the system in place seems like it would be a benefit for any new incoming regime. That might be the type of advantage that would allow the Boy's to come back strong the next time football is played, and earn back that $3-6mil dollars.

Anyone else have thoughts on this?
