    Mathis played three seaons from 1997-99, including two under head coach Chan Gailey (right).

    IRVING, Texas - Since taking over as head coach of the Cowboys, Jason Garrett has been no stranger to reuniting himself with former teammates and coaches.

    The latest connections to his playing days will be former Pro Bowl defensive lineman Leon Lett and nine-year veteran Kevin Mathis who are both expected to join the Cowboys at training camp this summer as part of the NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship Program.

    That's cool. I like the fact that 'Big Cat' is coming in to work a little with Rat, and all the other D-lineman.

    On Side note, Kevin Mathis's Daughter played against my daughter's team, for couple years in Soccer. I coached my daughter's team, and his daughter probably has his genes, so she is fast little kid. I don't think too many people recognized him though. Last I knew he was involved with Dieon and his whole Draft training or NFL training I think. I guess that isn't working out that well or he got itch to coach in NFL.

    If I'm not mistaken, I thought I saw a special on ESPN about Lett. Thought he was helping coach a DII football school? I saw this towards the end of last season.

    Really glad he will be there though.

    Lett will always have a special place in my heart. He went to college about an hour from here.
