With Jon Gruden's old staff in Dallas, how long will it take for Gruden to join them?
Submitted by 60 Max Power O Staff on January 26, 2013 - 4:46pm

Four former coaches that have worked with Jon Gruden have joined the Dallas Cowboys staff, the latest being Rich Bisaccia, who left his job at Auburn to coach special teams.

Monte Kiffin is on board as defensive coordinator, Rod Marinelli will coach the defensive line and Bill Callahan now gets control of the play calling duties that owner Jerry Jones stripped from head coach Jason Garrett recently. Oh, and he also had his brother John fired.

Garrett's list of people he can trust in the organization seems to be getting slimmer by the day.

We're not exactly sure what Jones has planned for Garrett, but the speculation is growing, especailly this weekend at the Senior Bowl, where whispers could be heard loud and clear that Jones is making a push for Gruden to give up his job in the ESPN broadcast booth and mosey on down to Valley Ranch.

While there aren't any sources confirming Jones' motives or any contact with Gruden, the writing looks to be on the wall for Garrett if Gruden does decide to coach again.

I thought Jerry Jones was into puppets and yes men. Gruden doesn't fit the mold. Is Jones finally willing to yield control?

It would have to be an arrangement similar to what he had with Parcells.

Exactly. Only those arrangements only last so long until he can't help himself.

Absolutely, positively no doubt in my mind this is going down. Consider this, the Dallas Cowboys are the least sexy team in the NFC East right now, starting with the Head Coach.

If I'm Jason Garrett, I'm coaching with both eyes open.
