    It sounds like the Dallas Cowboys might be interested in bringing Dan Campbell back to Valley Ranch as a member of Jason Garrett's staff.

    According to a report by the Dallas Morning News, the Cowboys are one of a few teams who have expressed interest in Campbell following his release from the Miami Dolphins. Campbell had coached the Dolphins tight ends from 2011 to this season, when he took over as interim head coach four games into the year.

    The Minnesota Vikings and the San Diego Chargers are reportedly the other suitors for Campbell.

    Campbell certainly has history in Dallas. He played tight end for the Cowboys from 2003-2005—where he served as a mentor to a young Jason Witten—before moving on to the Giants, where he was a teammate of current Cowboys head coach, Garrett.

    "I love Dan Campbell,” Garrett said earlier in the season. "He's a tough guy and a real good friend of mine. I have great admiration and respect for him. He was an outstanding teammate. I was so excited when he got into coaching because I believed he could bring a lot to people around him. I'm not surprised one bit that he's had the success that he's had."
