Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is only in his second season as CBS' lead NFL analyst, but he's already getting mentioned for another job - NFL coach.

Following Romo's brilliant display of football knowledge during the Kansas City Chiefs-New England Patriots AFC Championship Game, many are calling for an NFL franchise to hire Romo.

Some Cowboys fans have been calling for Romo to take over as offensive coordinator, but the CBS analyst won't be making the jump to coaching for an assistant gig. Romo makes more money working for CBS than he would as an offensive coordinator (a lot more, probably).

Romo probably won't be making the jump for a head coaching job, either, but it won't be surprising if an NFL team makes a big push for him.

"Great commentating by Tony Romo. He should be a coach. He called out everything that they were doing," NFL wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders tweeted.

"Some owner is watching this game ready to fire his head coach if Romo will take the job," NFL reporter Mike Garafolo tweeted.

"Romo has command of every moment, every call, every situation. He’s too good at this. He should be a coach," Will Cain added.

Darren Rovell believes there will be a serious battle between CBS and the NFL for Romo's services.

Romo seems truly happy in his role as a broadcaster for CBS and it's a much-less taxing job than NFL head coach. The former Cowboys' quarterback has multiple young kids, too, and the broadcasting job allows him to spend a ton of time with his family.

Will the allure of the NFL be too strong to pass up at some point, though? We'll see...
