Garrett: Dez "a Joy to Coach"

Jason Garrett says receiver Dez Bryant has turned into a coach's dream



    Dez Bryant had a career year in 2012, catching 92 passes for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns--all career highs. But the Dallas Cowboys believe the fourth-year receiver can be even better than that.

    Absolutely. That’s our job,” Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Our job is to make him the best he can be. ... We watch the tape and say, ‘Boy, you can play so much better. So much better.’”

    Garrett went on to praise Bryant’s coachability, which would have been a surprising statement a couple years ago, when the young receiver made a habit of letting his emotions get the best of him, leading to sideline outbursts and pouting.

    “He’s really, really a joy to coach,” Garrett said. “He has such passion for the game. He loves it. He loves his teammates. He loves to play.”
