Urban Meyer has the best odds to be the Dallas Cowboys head coach in 2020

Jason Garrett’s tenuous position has the speculation train running.

NFL Combine - Day 4

The position of Dallas Cowboys head coach is one that’s being talked a lot about these days. It’s being discussed as if it’s vacant.

Of course, Jason Garrett is the current head coach of the Cowboys but you’re well aware that this is a contract year for him. You also know that Garrett has come under fire since the Cowboys lost on the road against the New England Patriots. Fans are calling for a lot of things.

If the Cowboys brain-trust ultimately does decide to move on from Jason Garrett after this season there will be a lot of interest in who will ultimately take the job next. Our friends at BetOnline have odds for who that person could be, and the front-runner is former Ohio State (and Florida) coach Urban Meyer.

Note: If Jason Garrett is still head coach, will be graded as no action.

There are a lot of big names on here and obviously Meyer fits that bill. He’s perhaps not even the most notable coach that recently spent time in the college ranks as people have wanted University of Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley to take the job for some time now.

If the Cowboys did move on from Jason Garrett, who on this list would intrigue you the most? Someone that’s currently on the staff like Kris Richard? Someone from the college game? Name some names.
