Parcells: Jerry Jones has been ‘reasonably successful’ as GM
Bill Parcells has the same feeling as most who follow the Dallas Cowboys closely, the Hall of Fame head coach doesn’t see Jerry Jones ever hiring a general manager.
Parcells, who worked for Jones as Cowboys head coach from 2003-2006, was asked during a Wednesday radio interview if he thinks Dallas needs to hire a GM to become successful in the future.
"Well, what all of us believe, or think, it’s not going to happen in Dallas," Parcells told the Mike & Mike show on ESPN radio. "I think Jerry’s going to be the guy that’s the general manager. He’s got it set up that way. He’s got people he relies on, and quite frankly, it’s been reasonably successful for him. That’s the way he wants to do it, it’s his priority, he owns the team. And he has every right to do it the way he wants to."
After three consecutive 5-11 seasons, Jones hired Parcells as head coach in 2003. Over the next four years, the Cowboys went 34-30, making the playoffs twice.
During an interview in July, Parcells said he enjoyed his time with the Cowboys and talked about there being a "misperception" about Jones.
