This has been the longest week that Dallas Cowboys fans have experienced in quite some time. Thursday night brought with it multiple reports concerning head coach Jason Garrett. One noted that he was talking to players as if he was still part of the team and another seemed to imply that the team was moving on. In fact, the verbiage that ESPN used in their tweet and push alerts with the news outright said that the Cowboys have decided to move on.
It’s Friday morning, and considering the events of Thursday night, it made sense to think that the Cowboys might make an announcement of sorts to clear things up. Considering that it made sense is the exact reason why it did not happen. As of the time of this writing it isn’t even lunchtime on Friday, and the latest report from NFL Network’s Jane Slater is that Cowboys coaches and players have not been informed of any coaching change.
At this hour, coaches and players tell me they have not been informed of any changes at the head coaching position. #Cowboys HC Jason Garrett, himself, has yet to respond to my inquiries. If a decision is imminent, it has still not been conveyed.— Jane Slater (@SlaterNFL) January 3, 2020
We can continue to ask what is taking so long, why this is being drawn out like this, and what the Cowboys are thinking, but we will also continue to be left without any answers. This whole process is being drawn out for reasons that don’t seem logical to anyone, but the Cowboys are going to do what they want to do.
