    The Dallas Cowboys have a history with the University of Miami, and it's not only with players like Michael Irvin, Russell Maryland and many more. Jimmy Johnson, of course, coached the Hurricanes before making the jump to the NFL with the Cowboys and winning back-to-back Super Bowls, and the Cowboys also employed Butch Davis, who was at one time the Hurricanes' head man.

    Now, they could be in line to bring on another former Miami head coach as Al Golden is set to interview with the Cowboys on Wednesday in Mobile, according to the Dallas Morning News and several other media reports.

    Golden, who was fired midseason after a crushing loss to Clemson, has been a head coach at Miami and Temple and also coached at Penn State, Virginia and Boston College.

    The Cowboys have a defensive spot to fill as secondary coach Jerome Henderson left to take a job with the Falcons, and Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones confirmed Golden will be someone they'll talk to about that opening.

    "He's somebody that we'll talk to," Jones said of Golden. "I don't know if he's going to join [our coaching staff]. But we're going to be interviewing. There will be several names start to pop up in terms of possible additions to our staff after we lost Jerome."
