The Dallas Cowboys are in no great rush to finalize their new-look, 2013 coaching staff.
With three vacancies remaining--running backs coach, tight ends coach and special teams coordinator--owner and general manager Jerry Jones said this week that the staff wouldn’t be rounded out until after the Senior Bowl this week. Jones and co. will leave Mobile, Alabama, the site of the Senior Bowl, on Wednesday.
“We are going to kind of let that come out as we make those decisions about adding any new staff members,” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News. “When we’ve pretty much finished with what we’re going to be doing then we’ll get together on that, but that won’t be down here.”
So far, the Cowboys have parted ways with defensive coordinator Rob Ryan, special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis, running backs coach Skip Peete, tight ends coach John Garrett and assistant strength and conditioning coach Walt Williams. They’ve added defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and defensive line coach Rod Marinelli.
“I think the decisions we’ve made have really improved our chances for improving our record,” Jones said. “Jason and I and our entire organization are working together to do just that.”
