It’s a pretty good chance that Eagles coach Andy Reid will be fired at season’s end. It’s also a pretty good chance that Cowboys coach Jason Garrett will be fired at season’s end. And that’s where the similarities between the two end.
Reid will have multiple jobs to choose from and will probably be a head coach next season. As for Garrett, he’ll probably have to catch on as an assistant. And though many see Reid going to San Diego to replace Norv Turner if he finally gets the boot, Mark Eckel of the Trenton Times is reporting that Reid has his eye on the job in Dallas.
According to an extremely reliable source, who is close to Reid, the long-time Eagles head coach could be the head coach of the archrival Cowboys next year.
Of course, that is all based on Reid being fired by the Eagles, which is expected, and Jason Garrett being let go by the Cowboys, which isn’t quite as sure, but certainly could happen if Dallas does not make the playoffs.
“I know a lot of people think Andy is going to San Diego next year, and I can see that happening,” the source said. “But I keep hearing Dallas. I think he can end up with the Cowboys. As a matter of fact, I think he will end up with the Cowboys, if Jason is fired.”
On the surface, this sounds like a great move for Reid. But when you step back and think about it, does he really want to deal with a meddling owner and team that is a serial underachiever?
