Favorite to be Dallas Cowboys head coach in 2011?
Bodog.com has placed odds on who will be the Cowboys’ head coach at the beginning of the 2011 season.
Jon Gruden — 3/2
Bill Cowher — 5/2
Jason Garrett — 4/1
Wade Phillips — 50/1
Any other coach — 1/1
The leading candidate in the “any other coach” crowd would be Carolina’s John Fox. He appears to be on his way to an end-of-the-season divorce with the Panthers, but he’s a proven head coach who happens to be good pals with Jerry and Stephen Jones.
If any of those aforementioned names is appointed to be the head coach of the Cowboys, I will be quite unhappy. As I’ve made clear often in my comments, I think the Cowboys need a young, aggressive, innovative head coach. We know what Gruden and Cowher will bring. . .why not take the chance on finding the next Mike Tomlin or Sean Payton?
And if John Fox is at all a candidate, I will flip.
