– The Cowboys made no official moves on Thursday. Yet there certainly seems to be a lot going on, especially as they try to get ready for next week’s Senior Bowl down in Mobile, Ala. That’s usually the time teams want to have their entire coaching staff in place.
At this point, there are plenty of spots to fill and the Cowboys spent Thursday working on several different scenarios.
Here’s some of what has occurred, been reported or even suggested concerning the Cowboys’ coaching staff:
Not long after it was announced Rod Marinelli won’t be returning to the Bears, his name surfaced here with the Cowboys, especially with his ties to new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin. Marinelli worked 10 seasons with Kiffin in Tampa Bay, specializing in the “Tampa 2” scheme. Marinelli has been the defensive coordinator for the Bears since 2009, after a three-year stint as the Lions head coach.
As of late Thursday evening, the Cowboys were still working on the final touches of bringing in Marinelli as defensive line coach.
