Report: Dave Campo out as secondary coach in Dallas

Dave Campo will not return as the secondary coach for the Dallas Cowboys.

The contract of the veteran assistant expires this month and Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports Campo’s departure will be the first step in repairing a pass defense that was horrendous this season.

New defensive coordinator Rob Ryan’s system was a problem for the Cowboys, who were consistently shredded through the air. Dallas surrendered 3,906 yards passing, the second-most in franchise history. The 24 passing touchdowns allowed were a team record.

Per the report, the rest of the coaching staff is set to return “as of now.”
