Best Answer

Tex Schramm never owned the Dallas Cowboys. He was the team's president and general manager from 1960 to early 1989. But he literally was as powerful as an owner. For years, he operated the football program with little or no interference from the Cowboys' original owner, Clint Murchison.

Who founded the Dallas Cowboys football team?

The Dallas Cowboys as we know them today were pretty much invented by Tex Schramm, the team's first president and general manager. For instance, it was Schramm's idea for the Cowboys to wear white jerseys at home so that opposing teams would wear the uniforms that fans were used to seeing on television. Schramm also dropped the Cowboys' original white helmets and double-star jerseys in favor of a color scheme he believed looked cool on television. He was correct in his instincts. The Cowboys' blue metallic helmets have become iconic in the National Football League. Schramm also is credited with turning the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders into a world-renowned group with a fan following of its own. In the early 1970s, he came up with the idea of a sidelines squad that combined the pizzazz of Las Vegas showgirls with girl-next-door wholesomeness. The result caused a sensation throughout the league and the creation of other cheerleading groups that were more like dance teams.
