Cowboys still seeking to complete coaching staff
Now more than three weeks removed from the end of the regular season, the search continues to fill out Jason Garrett’s staff with the Dallas Cowboys.
Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews turned down a chance to join the organization as an assistant line coach, choosing to re-sign with the Houston Texans. It’s not a surprising move considering he’s maintained a residence in Houston since his playing days ended.
Matthews is the second candidate to turn Dallas down for the position after former tight end Dan Campbell opted to head to the Miami Dolphins where he will be the tight ends coach.
According to Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News, the assistant line position is one of four openings remaining on the staff. The Cowboys also need to hire position coaches for the defensive line, linebackers and wide receivers. Perhaps they will conduct interviews at the biggest coaching convention in the NFL, the Senior Bowl.
