Well, the wanting to leave for a year thing is a rumor with no confirmation. I don't know that he wanted to leave, I just know Jason Garrett didn't decide to get rid of him.
I find it comical it's so outlandish to think Jerry is in charge. Not only does he tell you that every chance he gets, the moves made make it obvious.
Garrett's in a win or go home situation for 2013. He doesn't have the job security to think long term. So making a defensive scheme switch with a 73 year old coordinator whose been in college for 4 years as well as churning his own blood, wasting time interviewing Jerry stooges like Houston Nutt, and have his own playcalling ability come into question doesn't seem like the kind of plan he would have entering into it. That screams of exactly what the owner tells you. He's in charge. Nothing is decided and acted upon without his say so. He's going to make everyone uncomfortable. Including the head coach.
This is Jerry's show and if Garrett falls in line he gets to have a supporting role for another 12 months.
