DeCamillis Set to Interview in Chicago



    The Dallas Cowboys could possibly lose one of their assistant coaches this offseason as special teams Joe DeCamillis will interview for the Chicago Bears head coaching job on Saturday, according to ESPN Dallas.

    The Bears fired Lovie Smith on Monday after they missed the playoffs despite a hot start to the season, and now they're courting some new faces, including DeCamillis, who has been with the Cowboys since 2009.

    DeCamillis has had his ups and downs in Dallas as the special teams coordinator. He, of course, has one of the league's top kickers over the past couple of seasons in Dan Bailey, although it's not like he's a kicking coach. That's just coincidence, if you ask me. He also had one of the league's best punters, Mat McBriar.

    Dwayne Harris emerged into a serious threat as a punt returner this season, which is probably more reflective of DeCamillis' coaching than a good placekicker. DeCamillis has probably had more good than bad moments in his Dallas stint, but it's hard to imagine he'd be someone a team would hire as its head coach right now. We'll know, one way or another, soon.
