Jerry Jones suggested this weekend that changes will be coming to Valley Ranch, and we may begin to see some of these changes sooner rather than later.
Head coach Jason Garrett held meetings with several of his assistant coaches during the latter half of last week. Garrett reportedly met with secondary coach Dave Campo, safeties coach Brett Maxie, running backs coach Skip Peete, offensive line coach Hudson Houck, quality control coaches/assistants Wes Phillips and Kevin O’Quinn, all of whom are in the last year of their contracts.
Campo responded with a “no comment” when asked of his job status with the team, but it’s worth noting, as ESPN Dallas’ Calvin Watkins did last week, that the team had designs on replacing Campo with former Steelers’ assistant Ray Horton last year. (Horton instead went to Arizona as defensive coordinator.)
According to Watkins, Houck, Maxie and O’Quinn are all likely to return, while, despite having a good relationship with Garrett, Phillips will likely join his father Wade--either in Houston or elsewhere, if Phillips opts to return to a head coaching position.
