Outside of taking over Jimmie Johnson's roster to win the Cowboys last SB, Barry Switzer did not have much success in the NFL.

 

Tom Landry never coached in college. He retired as a player for the Giants and became their DC before becoming Cowboys HC.

 

Pete Carroll was a former 2 time NFL HC before becoming HC at USC.

He can't hire anyone from an NFL team until after the season, so rushing into it won't help anything.  

And if he's going to hire a college coach...well, get ready for another five years of mediocrity because that never works, bringing a coach up from college to the NFL.  

Seattle?

Didn't he earn his way onto a coaching staff first, fail as a HC, then go back to college for almost a decade before becoming a big success? Took him his 2nd gig to get to the postseason in NE and 3rd gig to become a SB winner. 

20 years between first HC gig and a SB appearance/win.

The rest are older stories, right?

Heck, Belichick failed miserably at his first coaching job. It is not easy and sometimes it is easier to reset. Quinn may go on to be a great head coach. We just need a change and he does as well.

If Blank’s going to make a move, I hope he does it soon so we can start finding DQ’s replacement ASAP. I believe the Cowboys would be a more attractive job for the best available coaching candidates. Just gotta be honest...

Yeah, completely disagree. Jerry Jones is not an ideal boss.
