After interviewing for the Cleveland Browns’ head coaching vacancy last week, Cowboys secondary coach Jerome Henderson has decided to stay put in Dallas, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
Henderson coached the Browns secondary from 2009-2011, and was very well liked in the Cleveland locker room. But when defensive coordinator Rob Ryan went to Dallas in 2012, Henderson followed him, and he’s been here ever since.
Anyone who has followed the Cowboys the past four years could tell you the secondary hasn’t always exactly been a strength, but they ranked fifth in passing defense in 2015, and that was without the benefit of their best cornerback, Orlando Scandrick—who went down for the year with a knee injury in camp.
On the business side of things, there are still I’s to be dotted and T’s to be crossed. Henderson’s contract with Dallas expired at the end of the season, and he still doesn’t have a new one, but that will most likely be done quietly as the team gets to the work of the offseason.
