Ray Sherman out as Cowboys wide receivers coach

Ray Sherman got an interview to be the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys.

That job went to Jason Garrett and now Sherman is out of his job as the wide receivers coach for the franchise.

“My contract with the Dallas Cowboys is expiring at the end of the season," Sherman said in a statement, according to ESPN Dallas. "I appreciate the opportunity that the Cowboys have given me. I was able to coach a great group of receivers who now have a tremendous foundation, giving them the ability to continue to excel for years to come in the NFL."

Sherman had been lauded for the success he’s had in his role, especially for his work with Terrell Owens. Miles Austin took off under his tutelage and rookie first-round pick Dez Bryant had a strong first season.

Sherman should not have trouble finding work.
