Dallas Cowboys | Jerry Jones fires Skip Peete, running backs coach

Jerry Jones | Dallas Cowboys: Jason Garrett, Tony Romo, Cowboys StadiumLast week, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett expressed his disappointment in the offensive rushing attack.  On Monday, it was reported that the Fort Worth Star-Telegram stated that Skip Peete, who has been with the Cowboys since 2007 was fired by the team following a season in which the Cowboys rushed for an all-time franchise low of just 1,265 yards.  The running game plagued their offense all season.
Garrett stated, “We have to do a better job running the football. DeMarco Murray was out for a large portion of this season, but having said that, you have to put the next guy in there and you have to be effective running it. It just helps your football team. It helps your offensive line, it helps your quarterback, it helps your defense. That’s something that we’ve tried to do and we weren’t as effective as we needed to be. We have to make a commitment to being better next year.”

Which other coaches will join him?  Rob Ryan?

That makes no sense.. Why would you fire Rob Ryan who with all the injuries that plagued this defense this past season still made this a legitimate and scary defense for opponents. Before the Washington game this Defense was ranked 11th overall and thats with 20 different players throughout the season.

Great points! I am not stating that I think he deserves it. I mentioned Rob Ryan’s name, because of all the rumors mentioning him.
