NFL The Cowboys have decisions to make about their coaches

After Sunday’s disappointing playoff loss to the 49ers, here’s an interesting question that Jerry Jones is likely asking himself internally and fielding from those in his inner circle: What are we going to do about the offensive and defensive coordinators who have interviews lined up with almost every team with a head coaching vacancy? And what are we going to do about the current head coach, who, before the installation of said defensive coordinator and the drafting of a generational defensive prospect, was a bit of a disappointment?

You might be able to call this Jerry’s Dilemma because it is not a melodrama unfamiliar to the Cowboys. At one time, Jason Garrett was a rising star within the organization. Fearful of losing Garrett, Jones installed him as the interim head coach at the expense of Wade Phillips. Garrett went on to compile an 85–67 record with two playoff victories. He was let go to hire Mike McCarthy and, more recently, was let go as the offensive coordinator of the Giants.
