Report: Wade Phillips fired, Jason Garrett new Dallas Cowboys head coach
According to CBS correspondent Bill Jones, the Cowboys have fired head coach Wade Phillips and replaced him with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. This seemed like the most likely move after the Cowboys’ loss last night in Green Bay. Garrett will now have half a season to prove he is worthy of remaining the head coach in 2011.
I welcome the change, although I’m not sure you’ll see radically different results from Dallas. Garrett will still be calling the offensive plays obviously. The new defensive coordinator is still a mystery, although Dave Campo and Paul Pasqualoni seem to be the two candidates. You might see minor schematic changes on defense with Phillips out, but nothing major.
In my opinion, Garrett will leave Big D next season with the implementation of a new coaching staff. Too much has to be altered to justify his stay. Of course, he has eight games to prove me wrong.
