Default Cowboys rumor:Shanahan

Just a rumor and who knows where someone came up with it

Quote:
Let's add a third possibility here. Bowlen could look elsewhere, and his decision might depend on what happens with Shanahan.

Within hours of Shanahan's firing, a different rumor began to spread, and it hasn't stopped since. My guess is that it's gone far beyond a rumor, and much closer to reality.

That would be Shanahan becoming head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, once owner Jerry Jones figures out the best way to fire Wade Phillips after repeatedly insisting Phillips' job is safe for another year. Why it's likely: Jones has always been ruthless, the Cowboys are moving into their fabulous new stadium in 2009, and Shanahan and Jones are good buddies. Plus, Shanahan's kids have attended the University of Texas (his daughter Krystal was in the wedding, which all the Shanahans attended, of Jenna Bush, the president's daughter.) Oh, and son Kyle now is offensive coordinator of the Houston Texans. That's enough Texas ties.

One report, which nobody has refuted, is that Shanahan told a handful of NFL owners he needed two weeks to deal with the shock before considering his next move. He could sit out a year, or he could realize the truth: He'll never be more valuable on the coaching market than he is now.

My theory is that Jones has assured Shanahan the Dallas job is his, if he wants it, but Shanahan has asked for the two weeks to decompress, which would end sometime around Jan. 13 or 14.
