from Craig Custance of the Sporting News,
“The pressure (comes from) missing the playoffs for the first time in my career, a new coach, a new general manager—for all of us in the organization after completing our worst season I’ve been around, there is pressure on everybody,” Turco told Sporting News.
Now Turco enters the final year of a contract that averages $5.7 million, and he could be playing for his future in Dallas….
Along with trying to get his team back in the postseason, Turco wants to keep his job, too.
“I have a family—three kids now. I turned 34 (Aug. 13) and have one year left on my contract. That’s personal. We’re human and this is my job,” Turco said. “That’s pressure different than the arena of sport. I feel fortunate that I don’t feel stressed about my personal situation. As competitive and driven as I am, these things seem to take care of themselves.”
