Josh Brent joins Cowboys' scouting department

The Dallas Cowboys have hired retired defensive tackle Josh Brent to work in their scouting department. Brent, who has retired twice, is working with the scouts. “It’s good to have him out here,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said. “We want him here.” Brent spent five months in jail after being convicted of intoxication manslaughter for the death of former Cowboys teammate Jerry Brown in 2012. Brent retired from football in 2013 but returned in 2014 after serving a 10-game suspension by the NFL for violating the personal conduct policy. Brent played one game last year despite being on the 53-man roster for the final month of the season. A 2010 supplemental draft pick, Brent played 39 games from 2010 to 2012.
