Tony Romo has been working with Jason Garrett for seven years now, dating back to the 2007 season when Garrett was brought in as offensive coordinator, and the Cowboys put together a 13-3 record. He took over as head coach midway through the 2010 season when Wade Phillips was fired, and has held the position ever since.
Garrett has yet to lead Dallas to the playoffs as head coach, but Romo remains confident in his head coach.
“He’s always trying to go out there and learn something, it’s a great attribute he has,” Romo said of Garrett, per the Dallas Morning News. “He’s fantastic in 99 areas and he wants that one more that can allow him to be even better at his craft. He’s already really, really good. It’s just a testament to his attitude and approach toward it.”
Romo also had high praise for Scott Linehan, who was brought in to take over playcalling duties this offseason.
“I think he’s very good,” Romo said. “When you look at the tape from Detroit, you got to really enjoy some of the things they did. It’s unique. It’s different than some of the stuff we did. No question, we’re going to be similar in some areas, but we’re going to be a little different than what people have seen in other areas. Some of it will be simple where you really won’t be able to analyze and say, ‘That’s crazy different.’ But it will be. The simple things sometimes go a long way on Sunday between winning and losing."
“It’s going to be good. Scott’s got a great mind for football and he has a great way of communicating to the players. I enjoy talking ball with him.”
