Boniol Parts with Praise for Dan Bailey, Chris Jones

Chris Boniol served as assistant special teams coordinator with Dallas from 2010-2013



    Chris Boniol, who left his post as assistant special teams coach with the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month, thinks kicker Dan Bailey and punter Chris Jones will be just fine working with special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia.

    Dan and Chris, true professionals in every sense,” Boniol said last week, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I mean, their performance, their work ethic, their integrity on and off the field. I am extremely proud of those guys and proud to have been a big part of their development. I have full confidence that they’re going to continue and be successful.”

    Boniol had been with the Cowboys since 2010, and the decision to part ways was reportedly mutual. At the combine last week to look for a new gig, Boniol also had high praise for longtime Cowboys long-snapper, L.P. LaDouceur.

    “He snaps the most catchable ball for a holder and a punter, and I don’t think people realize how important that is,” Boniol said. “It’s very catchable, very consistent and very accurate. And the thing that he does the best is the laces on field goals, and that’s going to contribute how well the holder and kicker operate. They’ve got a good group there. They’re going to be successful for a long time.”
