Jerry said there would be no changes at the GM level.

Darn.

It's good that Jason will get a shot as interm Head Coach. I've heard though that some players are not really happy with him, but maybe as the HC, things may go turn around.

I doubt that Jason will be the Head Coach of the Cowboys next year, but a couple of good games for him this year may give him a chance somewhere else.

Probably good for all parties involved, including Phillips.

Gee, what a surprise.

Garrett was brought to Dallas as Phillips' prospective replacement and makes the same money as Phillips. He's been the heir apparent since day one.

I've wondered all season long if Garretts play calling (which has been suspect at best) wasn't a deliberate attempt to scuttle the season just to get Wade fired.

If so, looks like it's succeeded.

From Jones reaction last night, one could suspect that Phillips was done today.
