As I noted a few days ago, I was pulling for Jason Garrett to have the "interim" stripped from his title and to be named the next head coach of the Cowboys. And now, it's been announced that this has now happened.
Well done, Jerry Jones. As I said earlier, the team didn't need a high-profile retread this time; they needed the guy who had turned around a really lousy season and gave them some things to build on for the future. And it's a great story, too; no former Cowboys player has ever ascended to the head coaching position here before.
He'll have to deliver, of course. But for today, Cowboys fans can smile a little bit.
