If that happens, then we'll have these positions still open.
Offensive coordinator - This looks to be Jason Garrett's job considering the other offensive coaching positions are filled. He'll get the title unless Wade pulls a Tuna and decides not to name one. The question is still the amount of responsibility they place in Garrett.
Defensive coordinator - The only two names I've seen are Todd Bowles and Chargers secondary coach Brian Stewart. Stewart has the Phillips' connection from San Diego, but most of the talk is that Bowles will be elevated to DC.
Special teams coach - Your guess is as good as mine. I guess they could do the family thing and hire Joe Avezzano.
Secondary coach - If someone besides Bowles is named as DC, then Bowles remains in his old spot. If Bowles is elevated, then I don't know who it is.
Is Jerry Jones softening his guarantee that Terrell Owens will be back? That's all the rage this morning after Jerry said this:
"I am, of course I am," Jones said. "We've got some decisions to make, but still, I'm enthusiastic about it."
"He's part of our team, that's what I'm saying," Jones said. "I don't want the play on the words to look one way or another. We are evaluating everybody, but still, my plans are for him to be back."
It still sounds like Jerry wants Owens back, but when he answered the same question last month on whether Owens would be a Cowboy this season, he said emphatically yes and got testy with the press for even thinking Owens wouldn't be back. I still think he'll be back, but I'm starting to wonder now, Jerry doesn't seem so insistent.
But Jerry also said this about Owens, so I wouldn't put too much stock in the idea that Owens will be released.
