Troy Aikman: Jerry Putting Garrett in "Difficult Position"

Head coach Jason Garrett will be working with a new-look coaching staff in 2013



    Last week, Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones went on record as saying that Jason Garrett was the mastermind behind the wave of coaching changes we’ve seen since the season came to an end on January 30. Whether that’s true, we don’t know--and judging by his remarks last week, neither does Hall of Fame quarterback turned Fox analyst Troy Aikman.

    Aikman was on the East Texas ESPN Radio affiliate, 92.1-FM, on Friday, where he wondered aloud if Garrett was as much a part of these decisions as Jerry would have us believe. If he’s not, Aikman says, Garrett will be coaching in 2013 from between a rock and hard place.

    “There’s been a lot of changes. Jerry’s been very vocal about those changes that have been made,” Aikman said, via the Dallas Morning News. “I haven’t heard a lot from Jason Garrett as to whether or not he was on board with all the changes that occurred. Anytime that happens, I think that it certainly puts the head coach on notice, and it’s put him in a difficult position.”
