Best Answer

Jerry Jones is the general manager of the Dallas Cowboys because he also owns the team. He apparently is in no hurry to transfer the GM title to his eldest son Stephen, who serves as the Cowboys' vice president and director of player personnel. He apparently hasn't done a sloppy job in marketing the team. In August 2014, Forbes magazine reported that the Cowboys have become the first American football franchise valued at $3.2 billion.

Who fired Tom Landry?

The answer should be Tex Schramm. When Jerry Jones bought the Dallas Cowboys in 1989 Tex was still drawing a paycheck as general manager. It had always been his job to hire and fire players and coaches, and he did this his entire career with the Cowboys. However, he informed Jerry Jones that this was his responsiblity. Being a new NFL team owner Jerry believed him and went to see Tom personally to tell him the news. When Jerry found out how Tex had misled him he fired him and vowed that he would never live to see himself in the Cowboy's Ring of Honor. True to his word Tex Schramm was put into the Ring of Honor shortly after his death.
