Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett and quarterback Tony Romo were on hand for Duke basketball’s victory over North Carolina on Saturday night on Tobacco Road. Their visit wasn’t only motivated by a desire to watch some quality college basketball, though.
According to reports, Romo and Garrett have been working with the Blue Devils football coach, David Cutcliffe.
A quarterbacking guru, Cutcliffe serves as a sort of mentor for the Manning brothers, and he helped Peyton recover from a series of neck surgeries two years ago. Now of course, Romo is recovering from surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back, his second back surgery in the past year.
“Really ahead in a lot of ways,” Romo said of his rehab recently, per the New York Daily News. “Just going to be ready to go here in about a month and rehab is going good, no setbacks of any kind. (My surgery) was just a normal small version of it, so I should be good to go here shortly.”
