Report: Cowboys Eyeing Gruden as Coach if Garrett Misses Playoffs

It was only a matter of time before Jerry Jones began to look elsewhere.

The Dallas Cowboys have been an up and down team this year, and apparently owner Jerry Jones has begun his search for a head coach if the team misses the playoffs. One name being discussed, is Jon Gruden.

If the Dallas Cowboys miss the playoffs, Jason Garrett will be fired according to a source for Dan Patrick of “The Dan Patrick Show.

Per Patrick, the Cowboys “have quietly started their coaching search” and “Jerry Jones’ plane…has made a couple of stops.”  Patrick also stated that the Cowboys, prior to this past weekend’s game, were “kicking the tires on seeing who will be available,” and that he was told there will be a coaching change if Dallas does not make the playoffs.

We’ll see what Jerry Jones decided to do if the team misses the playoffs. As of now, they’re still alive.
