Cowboys Plan On Bringing In Assistant For Jerome Henderson

Jason Garrett said Thursday that the team would likely bring in another coach to help Henderson coach the secondary



    For the past four seasons, coaching the Dallas Cowboys’ secondary has been a two-man job, and it appears that the team wants to keep it that way.

    Between 2008 and last season, Dave Campo and Brett Maxie coached the secondary together, with Campo handling the cornerbacks and Maxie dealing with the safeties.

    Now, both of those guys are gone--Campo will become the defensive coordinator at Kansas, after not being asked back by the team, and Maxie will head to Tennessee for a secondary coaching job with the Titans after declining a two-year offer from Dallas--and Jerome Henderson stands as the team’s only secondary coach as we speak.

    But the team plans on bringing in another coach to assist Henderson, Jason Garrett said Thursday at the new coaches introduction to the Dallas media, keeping with the paradigm they’ve had in place for the past four years. We’re not sure who the team might have their eye on for the role, and we’re not sure the team knows either, but we’ll bring you more when we have it.
