Garret clearly indicated how important it is that players fit this new scheme if this move is made, and Kiffin clearly indicates that Garrett did a good job in his interview WITH GARRETT of convincing him to join, given Garret’s direction of this team. [View Full Quote]
Kiffin quote: “I’m very excited about returning to the NFL and being with the Dallas Cowboys,” Kiffin said in a statement. “I came away from the interview process with Jason (Garrett) with a feeling that Dallas is the right place to be. He has this team headed in the right direction. They’re close, and I am confident that there are quality pieces in place for us to be able to get the job done.”
Garrett quote: “Obviously that scheme will offer some changes to our defensive approach moving forward,” Garrett said in a statement. “I have spent the better part of the past two days in conversation with Monte regarding those changes, and we feel very good about our personnel being able to fit the philosophy.” So agendas aside, there’s great indication that this was a Garrett move, based on where he’s got the team headed, and that Kiffin wanted to join on this basis.
Sorry if any bubbles have been burst.
I am sorry but IMO to think this was a JG move and not a JJ move is not knowing how JJ operates the Dallas Cowboys.
Saying that I obviously think JG had some input on the move, but this has JJ written all over it, just ask Larry Lacewell, Jerry´s friend what he thinks of Kiffin.
Either he gets the credit or the blame, that´s the way it has always been with him and unfortunately always be.
