    Lovie gets my vote. In fact he can have the HC job if he would rather have it as far as I'm concerned.

    Here's one that's very, very, VERY far fetched. How about Butch Davis?

    Wasn't there a real fiery guy who was a position coach for the 49'ers? He was given some consideration for a HC or coordinator a little while back.

    If available, Lovie Smith please. I would think his personality would mesh with Garrett.

    He'll be the head coach in Philly or SD.

    How about Monte Kiffin? He taught Lovie Smith in Tampa.

    Garrett still has one brother not employed by the team. I would start there, then move the search on to the Garrett families in-laws, from there I would start looking at the Garretts families cousins, before finally exhausting my search by looking at the Garrett families 2nd cousins.

    Let’s look at possible 3-4 candidates should the Cowboys stick with that scheme but employ a different look.

    Arizona defensive coordinator Ray Horton was on Jason Garrett’s radar as a secondary coach two years ago – not coordinator – but he has become a head-coaching candidate in two years of running the Cardinals defense. He learned from Hall of Famer Dick LeBeau, Pittsburgh’s zone-blitz architect, and would have pieces in place to run that style here.

    Romeo Crennel comes from the Bill Parcells’ coaching tree. He has Super Bowl experience. Players love playing for him and he keeps the scheme interesting. He has had two tries as a head coach and it hasn’t worked out, but his style might fit well with Garrett.

    Could the Cowboys look to the college ranks for a coordinator? Garrett worked with Todd Grantham, Georgia’s defensive coordinator when Grantham coached the Cowboys defensive line under Wade Phillips. Grantham has an attacking style and has a defense that is filled with NFL-ready players. Given his SEC ties, he could provide some good insight on players in the draft. He also has NFL coordinator experience (Cleveland) and, like Garrett, worked for Nick Saban.
