All 100% speculation. Jimmy has said many times he was "probably" out the door anyway, as he was burned out and ready to go fishing or start a new challenge.. He never once stayed at any coaching job for more than 5 years. ...before or after Dallas. People have said many times that his coaching style wears thin after a few years and it's most effective and gets new life with a new team. HE--always the psychologist-- has said that. Maybe its true, maybe not. People (me included) like to glamorize what could have been, but the only real history we have is that he would have left.
