While the Dallas Cowboys still have a shot to win the division on Sunday night, the chances of quarterback Tony Romo playing are still pretty slim and backup quarterbacks Kyle Orton and Jon Kitna really don’t seem capable of pulling out a victory. If in fact they do miss the playoffs for the third straight year, I really do anticipate Head Coach Jason Garrett being fired, but who would replace him as head coach? While it is premature to speculate on future head coaches while Garrett still has the job, I thought it would be fun to see what potential candidates could come in here and revitalize the franchise.
When I see Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomilin on the sidelines, I see a tough coach that doesn’t fool around at all. He looks mean, he is young, he is energetic and he knows how to get the best out of his players. He has won a Super Bowl with the Steelers and also has taken them to another one, losing to the Green Bay Packers in 2010. He is a proven winner and could be a perfect fit here in Dallas. The only problem with him is that lately he has been acting very questionable and has been getting into a rift with his offensive coordinator. I doubt Tomlin will get fired after this year, but if he does, don’t be surprised if the Cowboy give him a call.
