Casserly: 'No exceptions to Rooney Rule' for Boys

Jerry Jones is already pretty excited about Jason Garrett's potential as the future full-time head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

So much so that, he's seeking an exemption for the Rooney Rule (which requires teams to interview minority candidates before hiring a coach) in order to simply lock Garrett in. However, according to CBS Sports Charley Casserly, the league will not grant that exemption.

"I talked to the league," Casserly said on Inside the NFL. "No exceptions for Dallas or any other team with the Rooney Rule. In other words, the job has to be open at the end of the season and a minority candidate has to be interviewed."

Casserly also made an interesting point about Garrett, saying he's "re-instituted mandatory weigh-in's and fines for players that don't meet their weight on a weekly basis."

This attitude is a stark contrast to the way Wade Phillips ran things in Dallas, and if the Cowboys keep winning, it probably means that Jones will do whatever he needs to in order to make Garrett his full-time head coach (which probably means we could have an awkward "courtesy interview" of a minority candidate at some point).

This is also likely why Jones wants Tony Romo to have a shot at returning in 2010 -- that gives Garrett a better chance to win and solidify himself as the front-runner for the position of head coach.
