Cowboys Have Special Teams Target



    Three weeks after joining new head coach Gus Malzahn's new staff at Auburn, Rich Bisaccia is reportedly on his way to being hired by the Dallas Cowboys.

    Bisaccia was hired by Malzahn after coaching special teams for the San Diego Chargers on Jan. 3, and now the Cowboys are trying to work out the details of a buyout to take him away from Auburn before he ever gets started, according to The Dallas Morning News. Before he was with the Chargers, he spent nine seasons as a Tampa Bay assistant where he worked with Monte Kiffin, the new Cowboys' defensive coordinator.

    The hire, whoever it ends up being, will replace the vacant hole left when Joe DeCamillis left to take the same job with the Chicago Bears. If it's Bisaccia, it will mean they'll replace one name you have to double- and triple-check spelling on with another.

    The Cowboys also interviewed former Buffalo Bills special teams coordinator Bruce DeHaven and former Tennessee Titans special teams coordinator Alan Lowry for the job, but both have reportedly been told they didn’t get the job, The Morning News said.

    If Bisaccia is hired, he'd join Bill Callahan, Kiffin and new defensive line coach Rod Marinelli as assistant coaches with ties to former Super Bowl winning head coach Jon Gruden, who is currently an analyst for ESPN.

    Time to bring in Gruden to replace Jason Garrett? Might as well.
