When former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman made his weekly visit with the KTCK 1310 AM and 96.7 FM morning show, he was asked about a potential move into the front office. Aikman downplayed the idea saying he was happy broadcasting, but had some interesting comments.
“I don’t think that that would happen in Dallas,” Aikman said Thursday, via the Dallas Morning News. “Babe [Laufenberg] has been kicking the tires on that scenario for a couple of years. I think every guy who’s played the position in the NFL and has spent time within the league has had maybe some aspirations at one point in time of moving into that capacity.
“I visited with John [Elway] last summer at length one evening at the Hall of Fame and talked to him about some of the challenges and the things that he had done there with the organization and he’s done a remarkable job. It’s been very impressive. They’ve drafted good players. He’s made good decisions, certainly, on bringing Peyton Manning in.
“Right now, I’m happy doing what I’m doing. At some point in time would I entertain the idea of intentionally getting involved with an organization? Yeah, I think that would excite me to some degree. Where that may take place, who knows? But, the structure in Dallas is pretty much set. I don’t anticipate anything like that would happen within the Cowboy organization.”
