Glazer's report, however, seems to imply that Garrett is unwilling to personally accept a decision the Joneses have already made regarding his future, a decision that has been made clear by their willingness to interview other candidates for the position.
Given Garrett's character and history, it seems more plausible that Garrett simply wishes for the Joneses to keep his name in consideration for the position as they conduct what will likely be a lengthy and exhaustive search for the next head coach.
Having already interviewed veteran NFL coaches Mike McCarthy and Marvin Lewis, and being reported to at least be "taking the temperature" of Oklahoma Sooner head coach Lincoln Riley, Dallas already seems pretty far down the road in that search.
Glazer also indicated in his report that things went well enough with McCarthy, that he is spending an extra day in the DFW while the Cowboys continue to conduct the search.
As the playoffs continue, and participating teams with viable candidates seasons start to come to an end, however, the Cowboys' interview list will surely continue to grow in number.
