Dallas Cowboys’ wide receivers coach Ray Sherman came away from his interview with the team, for the yet unfilled head coaching position, encouraged after exiting owner and general manager Jerry Jones’ office on Tuesday.
"I had a very good interview,'' Sherman said. "It lasted about three hours.''
Sherman’s interview satisfies the so-called “Rooney Rule,” which states that each team must interview at least one minority candidate when attempting to fill a head coaching vacancy.
Of course, whether Sherman’s interview went well seems immaterial at this point. It seems almost certain that Jason Garrett will land the job, which seems to beg the question--as David Moore of the Dallas Morning News pointed out earlier today--if Sherman doesn’t get the head coaching gig, will he be in Dallas at all, in 2010?
There’s a chance, of course, but with Garrett intent on calling his own plays, it seems a bit doubtful.
