Dallas Cowboys Promote Interim Coach Jason Garrett To Head Coach

Dallas SB Nation – The worst kept coaching carousel secret was made official today. Jerry Jones officially named Jason Garrett head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, removing the interim label from his title. Continue Reading…

Jason Garrett is the new Dallas Cowboys head coach.

The Dallas Cowboys have named Jason Garrett the Head Coach after he went 5-3 as an interim coach for the football team.

Jason Garrett was originally hired as an offensive coordinator for the Cowboys in 2007.

He was made the interim head coach after Wade Phillips was fired in the middle of the season for having a 1-7 record.

I have to say I knew this was coming. Wade Phillip did not set the bar very high and therefore it was easy for Garrett to impress Jerry Jones.

But I don’t see him as the long-term solution. We need a strong minded coach who demands respect.

Jason Garrett is a good student of the game who will always be prepared but he may be too young and inexperienced to garner the respect needed to win a Superbowl.


San Fransisco 49ers Fire Head Coach Mike Singletary

Sports Illustrated – Mike Singletary was fired by the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night after two disappointing seasons, including a 5-10 showing this year for a franchise expected to win the NFC West.

The team made the announcement late Sunday upon returning to the Bay Area, several hours after San Francisco was eliminated from playoff contention with a 25-27 loss at St. Louis. Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula was promoted to interim coach and will run the team in next Sunday’s season finale at home against Arizona:  Continue Reading…

San Fransisco 49ers team president and CEO Jed York  fired head coach Mike Singletary today amid speculation that he may allow him to coach the 49er’s last game of the season.

Defensive line coach Jim Tomsula will serve as the interim coach for the San Fransisco 49ers.

Mike Singletary was 18-22 overall in a little over 2 seasons. He went 8-8 last year and finished 5-10 this year. He said “You know what, I’ll put it this way: a personal failure. I’m the head coach of this team and obviously wanted us to do better, felt that we could do better.”

Owner John York says he plans to hire a GM before he hires a new head coach.

Mike Singletary never looked right as the head coach of the 49ers. He always came off as a strict and unhappy coach.

Mike Singletary has finally been fired

This season was just too much. The St. Louis Rams are leading the NFC West division with a measly 7-8 record. With the talent the 49ers have, winning the division should have been like a walk in the park.

Professional athletes want to be able to relate to their coaches as man-to-man, not man-to-child.

Singletary will surely be better off taking a defensive coordinator coaching job somewhere else, or even in San Fransisco.

But one thing is for sure, Mike Singletary as head coach of the 49ers was never going to work out.

You could see that his players weren’t really responding.

Denver Broncos Owner Pat Bowlen Fires Head Coach Josh McDaniels

Denver Post – In the end, there was too much controversy and not enough wins.

The combination led to the end of the brief but stormy head coaching stint of Josh McDaniels, who was fired Monday afternoon.

Josh McDaniels may not get another head coaching job in the NFL.

“From a personal standpoint, I’m disappointed because he was not only a head coach but a play caller,” said Broncos quarterback Kyle Orton. “I did really like him as a play caller. I think he’s a good coach. The players have to be held accountable, too. The way we’ve played is on us. You never want to see somebody fired.”  Continue Reading..

The Denver Broncos fired Josh McDaniels today, Dec. 6, 2010, after he brought the Broncos to a 3-9 record this year.

Denver Broncos owner Pat Bowlen dodged any speculation that this was because of the video tape incident, also known as Spygate II that occurred this year.

Where McDaniels  hired Steve Scharnecchia to video tape the San Fransisco 49ers’  walkthrough practice during week 8 in London.

I’m surprised Josh McDaniels was fired before Eric Mangini.

Dallas Cowboys Owner Jerry Jones Fires Wade Phillips

ESPN – Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones fired coach Wade Phillips on Monday, sources told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Ed Werder.

The move comes less than a year after he was given a two-year contract extension for leading the Cowboys to their first playoff win in over a decade. He will be replaced by offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, the sources said. Continue Reading…

Jerry Jones has fired Wade Phillips and replaced him with offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. It was the obvious decision after the Dallas Cowboys lost 45-7 to the Green Bay packers to become 1-7 overall this season.

Deion Sander focused. He knew what it meant to be a part of the Dallas Cowboys organization.

Jerry Jones even said “There are a lot of people here who are certainly going to suffer and suffer consequences” after the loss.
