Former Cowboys coach Barry Switzer stopped by Trump Tower on Wednesday, telling reporters he was there to interview for President-elect Donald Trump’s “Secretary of Offense.”
Switzer, who won a Super Bowl with the Cowboys in 1995, brought the jokes, too. In one tweet, he said Trump “wants to ‘Make the Wishbone Great Again.’”
The President-elect apparently favors the ground game.

Switzer might make a good cabinet candidate, if that’s true.
He resigned from the Cowboys after a 6-10 season in 1997. But as a college coach at Oklahoma, his Sooners won three national championships, routinely scoring, as Switzer would say, half a hundred points with the old Wishbone offense.
