The Dallas Cowboys are in the midst of a very special season. Fresh off their 20-19 win over the Detroit Lions, the Cowboys sit at 11-5 and in prime position to win the NFC East. The Cowboys can clinch the NFC East next week with a win over the Washington Commanders.
All of that being said, nothing stops owner Jerry Jones from thinking long-term. He feels as though one former player would be a great head coaching candidate, possible for the Cowboys themselves.
Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Identifies One Former Player Who Would Make A Great Head Coach
On December 27 ESPN’s Ed Werder posted on X (Twitter) citing a Dallas Morning News article in which Jones compared Coach of the Year candidate Dan Campbell to Witten: “Jerry Jones’ quote at the end of this piece suggests he is considering Jason Witten as a future head coach for the Cowboys.”
Obviously, Mike McCarthy is the current head coach of the Cowboys and has had a respectable amount of success. With one week to go in his fourth season as the Cowboys head coach he owns a 41-25 record with the team. He has yet to find consistent success in the playoffs with Dallas going 1-2 in that span. That will be the final hurdle that McCarthy will need to overcome with the Cowboys.
What Would Witten Bring To The Cowboys As A Head Coach?
In the NFL, he played 16 seasons with the Cowboys and one with the Las Vegas Raiders, earning 11 Pro Bowl honors.
As one of the top tight ends in NFL history, he recorded 1,228 catches for 13,046 yards and 74 touchdowns, which ranks him fourth in all-time receptions.
His knowledge of the game was on full display when he played, spent time as an announcer, and coached his son’s high school football team to a state championship.
While McCarthy seems to be in the drivers seat for the time being, it would seem Jerry Jones already has his sights set on a future head coach who made an incredible impact for the franchise.
