At first glance, it might seem a little odd that Cowboys coach Jason Garrett spent time with Duke basketball coach Mike Krzyzewski in order to pick his brain on the finer points of coaching.

But not when you hear this explanation about why he traveled to Durham, N.C., to breathe in the wonder of Coach K.

“It was just a great visit,” Garrett told the National Football Post, via the Dallas Morning News. “I think you’d be hard pressed over the last 30 years to find an organization, in or out of sports, college or pro, whatever it is, that has been more successful than Duke basketball. Krzyzewski’s obviously been there that entire time."

More than studying Krzyzewski’s organizational abilities, Garrett also wanted to observe how he runs practice.

“We literally could talk about this for five days I learned so much,” Garrett said. “He has an amazing way of creating an environment that is so organized, so systematic, so seamless, the execution and everything they do is off the charts. He also has this amazing personal touch with everyone involved in the organization. He has a personal relationship with everybody. He cares deeply about everybody. They care about each other.

“It’s a combination of IBM at its finest moments and the greatest mom and pop shop you’ve ever seen and he puts it together. I sat there for three days and was really amazed by it. It inspired me a great deal.”

redman, oooooook, whatever. A good coach is a good coach regardless of who the owner is. We haven't had a good coach since Parcells and he has dropped off a lot from his glory days. Jerry DID hire Jimmy Johnson and we DID get 3 superbowls...hater!

If he is willing to do anything to improve himself then he should leave dallas before that garbage owner drags him down and maes it to where noone else will ever want him.
