It seems that very few around Dallas, or anywhere else for that matter, believe that Jason Garrett is the long term answer for the Dallas Cowboys, which means that--even after the firing of Wade Phillips Monday--the debate as to who will be the next head coach rages on.
One name that’s been floated, though less than your “Cowhers,” “Foxes” and “Grudens” is former Ravens’ head honcho Brian Billick. Billick, who won a Super Bowl with his Baltimore Ravens in 2001 and currently serves as an analyst for Fox, said in an appearance on ESPN Radio’s Mike and Mike in the Morning Thursday that, under the right circumstances, he would be interested in making a return to coaching.
“Well, once a coach, always a coach and that's always a part of your blood,” Billick said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I'm at the point in my life where I'm enjoying what I'm doing. Yes, there's aspects of that that I miss if it were the right partnership. And that sounds like a cop-out because you hear coaches all the time say, 'Well, in the right situation, with the right people,' and then Charles Manson would offer them a job and they would take it.
“Because it really is a partnership. You can't be out there by yourself. Whether its' the general manager, the president, the owner, however you want to structure it, it has to be strong partnership with a unified vision a going forward. If you have that, then yeah, that's something that would be very interesting to me. But those jobs and then those people that might very well be interested in me I think that's a fairly narrow bandwidth.”
