The Dallas Cowboys lost out in their pursuit of one offensive assistant and received some competition for the services of another on Thursday.
First, it was reported by ESPN Dallas that former Cowboys’ tight end Dan Campbell, who interviewed for the role of assistant offensive line coach for his old team last week, would also interview with the Miami Dolphins. Campbell served as an offensive line assistant in 2010 for Miami, his first experience coaching.
Then, the Denver Broncos announced that they would retain Adam Gase in the role of quarterback coach.
Gase, who has been the wide receivers coach for the Broncos for the past two seasons, had interviewed for the same role with Dallas this week. Gase was familiar with Roy Williams and Jon Kitna from his time as an assistant with the Detroit Lions. He also shares a coaching connection with head coach Jason Garrett: Gase coached under Nick Saban at LSU; Garrett coached under Saban during his short tenure as head coach of the Dolphins.
