Brian Billick says he has not talked to Cowboys

Jerry Jones said last week that two Super Bowl winning head coaches have contacted him about the Cowboys head coaching job. He didn’t say which two, though many assumed that former Ravens head coach Brian Billick (Super Bowl champ in 2000 season) was one of them.

But…B. Billick (US Presswire)

“I have not talked to Jerry Jones,” Billick said, according to Pat McManamon of Fanhouse. “I have not talked to anybody in Dallas.”

Billick is currently an analysts (a tremendous analyst, in fact) for FOX and the NFL Network. He has a rich NFL pedigree, but since being fired in Baltimore in 2007, he has not gotten many sniffs as a potential head coaching candidate.

What makes Billick’s isolation as a coaching candidate odd is that, as McManamon points out, he is not interested in having full control over a franchise.

"It's transitioned to a general manager's league," Billick said. "They call more of the shots, so naturally they lean toward a guy who they can say to: 'Don't worry about personnel, the cap, the budget. Worry about football. And quite frankly if you don't want to talk to the media, the less the better.' To seek out somebody who has a Super Bowl ring on his finger is ambitious for a GM, but that's part of the equation."

Billick’s reputation for arrogance is likely overblown and, what’s more, not significant enough to prevent him from getting another opportunity. So what’s the issue here?

"I've had conversations with people, with team,” Billick said. “Same for Jon (Gruden) and Bill (Cowher), I'm sure. But why my name doesn't get buzzed around, that's really not for me to answer."

I think coach Billick would be a great coach, if not an awesome asset to any football team. This guy rules. I'd rather see head coaches that rule with an iron fist. That usually transform into a disciplined team. Look at coaches like Dungy, Belichick, Fisher, Cowher, Walsh, Parcels. These guys know how to win. They have a team-first attitude. They eliminate the individualism by having their players buy into their system. Honestly, I think teams like Minnesota, Cincinnati, St. Louis would benefit from this guy. That's just an opinion.Money mouth

I'd just like to point out that Brian Billick is one of my favorite analysts, and for him to be lost from commentary to coach the Cowboys would be a tragedy. I remember his commentary during the Ravens-Bears game last season and it was phenomenal. He was insightful and interesting, as opposed to many other analysts. Please, Billick, don't go to the Cowboys. Anything but that.

 haha. I get a kick out of the cbssports fans. Brian Billick would be a pretty damn good fit for the cowboys, but jason garrett looked like a damn genius against the giants IN the meadowlands. Well, we'll see how this thing develops.
