Jerry Not Planning On Hiring New Offensive Coordinator



    During Fox’s pregame show before last week’s game between the Seahawks and Cowboys, former Cowboys head coach Jimmy Johnson had some pointed advice for current head coach Jason Garrett--this, of course, following a 34-7 loss to the Eagles in Philly.

    "It may be time to think--not for this year but for next year--hire an offensive coordinator to call the plays and be the head coach," Johnson said, via the Dallas Morning News.

    Not surprisingly, Jerry Jones doesn’t agree with his old pal Jimmy’s assessment, and he talked all about it on his bi-weekly appearance on 105.3 FM The Fan on Tuesday.

    "Jimmy was what I call a walk-around coach." Jones said. "[Bill] Parcells was a walk-around coach. Joe Gibbs is a guy who believes that the head coach needs to be in charge of either the offense or the defense and needs to be the coordinator. It brings you stature, it involves you in the game and gives you more respect with the players.

    "It's different schools of thought. I've always thought that Jason Garrett could handle coordinating as well as being the head coach."
