The Cowboys announced Tuesday that Wes Phillips--son of Jason Garrett’s predecessor in Dallas, Wade Phillips--has been named the team’s tight ends coach, replacing Garrett’s brother John, who left his post at Valley Ranch to become the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ wide receivers coach last month.
Phillips came to Dallas as a member of his father’s staff back in 2007, and stayed put as a quality control coach after the elder Phillips was fired halfway through the 2010 season.
The Cowboys also announced that they’ve hired longtime Texans assistant Frank Pollack as the new offensive line coach. Pollack spent five seasons as an assistant offensive line coach in Houston before taking over (briefly) as the Oakland Raiders’ offensive line coach last season. He was fired by the Raiders in December.
This leaves Dallas with just one coaching vacancy, at running backs coach.
