Sherman And Bowles Interviewed For Head Coaching Position

While we were all hoping for an announcement of some kind regarding the Cowboys head coaching position, we did get some feedback from some of the candidates. Current Cowboys receivers coach Ray Sherman, who was interviewed yesterday, said that his interview went well and that he was happy to have the chance to sit and talk with Jerry Jones about the position.

“”I had a very good interview,” Sherman said. “It lasted about three hours.” While Sherman isn’t considered a favorite to get the position, he would make a great offensive co-ordinator or assistant head coach. Sherman has had the pleasure of working with some of the greatest and volatile NFL personalities during his time as a receivers coach. Sherman helped shape receivers like: Terrell Owens, Randy Moss, Chris Carter, and perhaps the best of all time, Jerry Rice. Sherman has also been instrumental in the development of Miles Austin and Dez Bryant.

Todd Bowles is also no stranger to the Cowboys. He spent 2005-2007 with the Cowboys as a secondary coach before leaving to join Tony Sporano’s staff in Miami. Bowles was a favorite of many of the Cowboys players during his time here and has the potential to be a great head coach in the future. Bowles met with Jerry Jones this afternoon for a couple of hours and send that the interview was also a positive one for him.

“It went good. I was grateful for the chance to come in here and they thought enough of me to come in here and interview and that was good,” Bowles stated. Also a long shot to become the head coach, Bowles makes and interesting defensive co-ordinator prospect as well. The Cowboys would need permission from the Dolphins for Bowles to get out of his current contract to join the club.

Both men are great coaches and would be great assets to this Cowboys squad. With all that being said, it does appear that Jason Garrett will be the next head coach, we are just waiting for Jerry to confirm it.
