Chan Gailey, pictured here with a suspiciously different-looking Jerry Jones, was the Dallas Cowboys’ head coach for two seasons back in 1998-99. He took the team to the playoffs both years, winning the division in his first season. But following the 1999 season (his second winless trip to the playoffs), he was fired, making him the shortest tenured head coach in the history of the Cowboys.
Jones has said he regrets the decision in the past, but Gailey, now the head coach of the surprising Buffalo Bills, holds no grudge toward to Cowboys’ owner and general manager.
"I see him at the league meetings and see him at different places, and it's just fine,'' Gailey said, per the Dallas Morning News. "We get along well.
"We're in a business and he had to do what he thought was best for his business. I don't ever begrudge a guy for that. If it's my business and I think I've got a decision I have to make, I make it. You just go on with life. That's just part of it.''
