Terrell Owens On Jason Garrett Being Out As Cowboys Coach: "He Gets What He Deserves"

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Former Dallas Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens has been very critical of Jason Garrett ever since he was cut from the team back in 2009. Fast forward to today and nothing's changed.

After the Cowboys announced publicly that they would be moving on from Garrett and would hire Mike McCarthy to replace him, Owens seized the opportunity and took another shot at his former coach.

"Not only am I happy. This is a guy that ousted me years back. So it's only fitting that I'm excited about his departure," Owens said Tuesday on 95.7 The Game in San Francisco. I don't have any nice parting words for the guy. He gets what he deserves."

During the season, Owens went to social media to plead with team owner Jerry Jones to fire Garrett after the Cowboys surprising loss to the winless New York Jets in Week 6. 

Hey @realjerryjones!! Still think Jason Garrett is the answer?! For a decade, A DECADE NOW, it's the same old song and dance! I knew they were going to @JasonWitten on the 3rd down prior to TD and knew they were going to him on the 2-pt conversion. Not too late 2 bring me back --

Owens didn't stop there as he took another shot at Garrett on 95.7 The Game.

"When I see videos of players coming off the field not even acknowledging the head coach ... when I see that from players that lets me know that they are not with Garrett, Owens said of a video that circulated online of players not high-fiving the coach when they came off the field against the Jets. "All Jerry Jones need (s) to do is look at that clip. Those players are not with Garrett. And I guarantee if he made a change right now, it would probably rejuvenate that locker room. Whoever comes in ... they may go on a six-game winning streak."

As for the Cowboys new head coach Mike McCarthy? Owens approves.

"(He's) a guy that is a proven winner. (He) won a Super Bowl. I think it's a smart move to bring somebody in here with experience," Owens said. "I think the guys (on the team) are going to rally around this guy. ... This is the first step I think in the right direction to getting the Cowboys back to where everybody wants them to be."
