The Dallas Cowboys will soon sign Jerome Henderson of the Cleveland Browns to replace the departing Dave Campo as the team’s secondary coach, Brandon George of the Dallas Morning News reports.
News broke yesterday that Campo would not be asked back in 2012, after the secondary struggled as it did in 2011--the final year of Campo’s contract with Dallas.
It’s not difficult to see why Henderson was singled out by Dallas as the frontrunning candidate for the newly vacant job. He has been the Browns’ secondary coach for the past three seasons, the first two of which, of course, he spent working under Cowboys’ defensive coordinator Rob Ryan.
Henderson confirmed Tuesday night that he was in talks with Dallas, but that nothing had been made official yet.
"Right now nothing has transpired between me and the Cowboys. We are in discussions but nothing has happened," Henderson said. "I don't want to speak out of turn."
