Cowboys fire DC Mike Nolan and DL Coach Jim Tomsula


Recommended Posts

Imagine being Jerry Jones and having recently had guys like Kris Richard and Matt Eberflus on your defensive staffs and just having an open vacancy at DC and Mike McCarthy as HC. I get the allure of having your HC be some offensive master, but if you are getting the dollar store version you should just keep your promising defensive coaches and promote them and then just lean on your young play callers like Kellen Moore to be the vision offensively.

Well deciding to switch to 3-4 with no offseason,  and players that dont really fit a 3-4 defense will get you fired.  

Is this why the D sucked so much or was losing players like Byron Jones huge? Did the actual playcalling stink too?

Cutting Jaylon Smith doesnt really make sense.  It's pretty much negligible cap savings next year.  

It makes a lot of sense. Make him a June 1st cut and the team saves $5MM. We could find someone better (or slightly better at the very least) for that price.

Be great if Jerry got fired as GM...

Tomsula has been really good in the past. 

fortunately he's a highly sought after keynote speaker - he should have no trouble securing corporate gigs while he waits for his next coaching oppty
