It appears that former Patriots, Bills and Ravens running back Sam Gash may have emerged as the frontrunner for the Dallas Cowboys vacant running backs coach position.
Per a source in contact with the Dallas Morning News, Gash interviewed with head coach Jason Garrett in Mobile, Alabama on Tuesday, and did quite well.
Gash spent the past five seasons, dating back to 2008, as the Detroit Lions’ running backs coach before being let go following the 2012 season. It was just his second coaching job in the NFL, the first being with the New York Jets from 2005 to 2006, where he served as assistant running backs coach and assistant special teams coach.
The Cowboys fired running backs coach Skip Peete shortly after the season--which saw Dallas finish second-to-last in the league in terms of rushing--came to a close. Peete has since joined the staff of the Chicago Bears, where he’ll be joined by ousted special teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis.
