Despite the failures of the Cowboys this season, assistant head coach/offensive coordinator Jason Garrett remains a hot commodity. The Denver Broncos have been given permission by the Cowboys to interview Garrett, according to a source. The Broncos fired Mike Shanahan after 14 years and two Super Bowl titles. Garrett will interview with Denver next week.
Earlier this week, the Detroit Lions requested to interview Garrett. The interest remains after Garrett's offense fell from third in the league to 13th as his play-calling was puzzling at times and Tony Romo's pass distribution became an issue. After the season, Romo and Terrell Owens pointed to problems with the Cowboys' scheme being solved by the opponents.
Denver is also looking at NY Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo, New England offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels and Tampa Bay defensive backs coach Raheem Morris. The Broncos are also reportedly interested in Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops.
