The Dallas Cowboys didn’t have to look far to find a replacement for special teams assistant Chris Boniol, who decided to part ways with the team earlier this month.
According to Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News, the team has hired Carlos Polk--who served as an intern with the Cowboys in 2013--to take over that role next year. Polk is with the group of Cowboys coaches, scouts and front office members in Mobile, Alabama for the Senior Bowl this week.
Polk, a fourth round pick out of Nebraska in 2001, spent seven seasons with the Chargers before finishing his career with the Cowboys in 2008. As a coach, he spent four years as a special teams assistant with San Diego, including two years working under current Cowboys special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia.
