The Cowboys family is a tight bunch.
At many levels of football operations around the NFL, even the media side of it, you’ll find a former player from the Dallas Cowboys.
You don’t even have to look past the Cowboys current coaching staff to find members of the fraternity as Jason Garrett and Kellen Moore both donned the star. Troy Aikman and Tony Romo serve as lead color analysts for FOX and CBS respectively, America’s Team is represented everywhere.
Before it folded, the Alliance of American Football also had a blue and silver presence. Daryl Johnston served as the general manager for the San Antonio Commanders, he still has his own FOX duties, and he did a pretty good job of assembling a team that could compete week after week.
Obviously the AAF is no more which means that Johnston’s days of running a front office are over... at least for now. In an appearance on ESPN San Antonio on Friday, he made it clear that he still has the itch of football operations to scratch, and he’s going to look to the team he once played for as a point of inspiration.
