As we’ve long suspected, the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff will lead one of the sides in the Senior Bowl later this month.

Being the NFC team with the worst record, and with their staff remaining intact, the team received the invitation and accepted on Wednesday, according to Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones.

It will mark the first time in 50 years that the Cowboys staff has coached in the game, the last coming when Tom Landry and co. coached the South to a 7-7 tie with the North in 1965.

Of course, this is good news for the Cowboys, who own the fourth overall pick in the upcoming draft. The Senior Bowl is about as big as it gets in terms of pre-draft events for NFL teams, and Garrett and his staff will get a week working side by side with these potential picks.

"You're there for a week with the players so you see them in a pro football environment,'' Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. "It's really the best up-close-and-personal look that you get of these players through the whole draft process."
