    IMO if the 'Boys fail to reach the playoffs next season then Lovie Smith will be the next HC. The Bears made a huge mistake and Lovie will sit out this year probably doing some TV and look for another Head job next year. It is the Schottenheimer conundrum, has very good teams year in, year out but the GM/Owner believes the coach is the problem and whacks him. None of the teams that whacked him (Marty) got any farther than he did and usually sunk back to the basement of their respective divisions.

    I think that is much more likely than Gruden.

    Have the Cowboys ever had an African-American coach at a level higher than position coach?

    why didn't anybody hire lovie smith? there were certainly many openings in the NFL. yet he didn't get a whiff, even to satisfy the rooney rule!!!

    here we go again, with people throwing around the big names they have heard, cowher, smith, gruden, blah blah blah

    I want red to succeed just because I want our cowboys to succeed. But I would love to have mr. Smith in the fold as our head coach. Look what he did with a bears team who had jay quitler and Rex gross man as their qb's

    I don't think that Jerry will fire Garrett as long as the players continue to play hard, regardless of the Win-Loss record.

    IMO, Jerry just does not have a high regard for Head Coaches. He thinks their primary function is to keep the players motivated and to deal with the media. I guess that Garrett could get in trouble if he really screws up some game-management situations.

    For whatever reason, it seemed like teams were looking for offensive coaches. Not sure if any defensive coaches HC positions.

    your right. He basically wants them to stay out of his way. Parcells was the exception but Big Bill was just to far away from his peak years. Lovie would be interesting because I think he would let Jerry do his thing.

    I haven't read where there is any connection with Lovie and Jerry that would make me think he was more of a frontrunner than some of the other coaches that have been mentioned. It may be, but I haven't seen anything. I think Lovie got a raw deal, but it would depend on what coaches are available. Who knows what Jerry is looking for when he interviews? I think it depends on his mood that day.

    The Cowboys already have Kiffin and Marinelli to run the defense. Lovie is a good coach but he has always had problems bringing in a competent offense. That move wouldn't make sense for the Cowboys.

    Smith will get another HC job, but I wouldn't want him unless paired with a strong GM, which he won't have in Dallas.
