I don't think Jones had a choice here. Gailey is a good coach, but he was absolutely the wrong coach for Troy Aikman, who was extremely uncomfortable in Gailey's offensive system. Aikman had three Super Bowl rings, and at the time was our best hope for another. So, Gailey had to go. Ironically, Aikman didn't last another full season, as his back problems and concussion issues cut his career short.
