Jerry Jones: 'No doubt' I could work with Bill Belichick on CowboysFRISCO: Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, declares that his team is “all in” on attempting to win a major championship in 2024. And when it comes to Dallas’ hunt for a new defensive coordinator to take Dan Quinn’s position, at least one powerful and well-known colleague concurs with him. Under the condition of anonymity, a fellow NFL owner tells CowboysSI.com, “Watch him.” “Jerry is hoping to make a big hire. Here, he’s really swinging for the fences.

Pete Carroll, who was recently removed from his long-standing position as head coach of the Seattle Seahawks, expressed his desire to continue as a coach. He has achieved every football goal conceivable. There is no indication that she is lacking vigor, even at 72. Want to carry on acting in a “Quinn-like” manner? Carroll’s hiring would bring to mind the Cowboys of the 1990s, who took Norv Turner’s place with Ernie Zampeze, their mentor. This would come as a pleasant surprise. Longstanding relationships exist between Quinn and the Cowboys and Aden Durde, the defensive line coach for Dallas. He’s regarded as a rising star and is well-liked in the locker room. He was able to travel to Washington. One problem for Dallas is that McCarthy is a rookie defensive playcaller; is he truly willing to put his wagon behind him?
