Sunday there was a report that former NFL coach Mike Holmgren was interested in the Cowboys coaching job if it was available, a report Holmgren denied on Monday.
Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas reports Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was asked about Holmgren on Tuesday during his twice-weekly radio show on KRLD-FM.
“I won’t and can’t get into that kind of conversation because of how fired up I am about the future of Jason,” Jones said. “The future is now, but also I am fired up about him and what he can be coaching the Dallas Cowboys. Mike Holmgren … I can’t tell you on a individual basis how much I respect him. He’s everything you would want as far as a coach is concerned and I appreciate, it was a compliment, when he was talking about how he was impressed with our talent and the fact that we could work together. And that’s just the case. But make no mistake about it. And Mike doesn’t need me to say what a great guy he is. Our fans probably need to hear he’s a great guy. Bottom line, it’s all about Jason with me.”
