    So impressed with coach, assistants left jobs with top teams to join Cowboys staff

    INDIANAPOLIS -- From the outside, the decisions of Jimmy Robinson and Mike Woicik to join the Dallas Cowboys' coaching staff seem strange to say the least.

    Only a few days after winning Super Bowl XLV at Cowboys Stadium as Green Bay's wide receivers coach, Robinson accepted the assistant head coach and wide receivers coach titles with the Cowboys. The Packers are viewed by some as a reincarnation of the 1990s Cowboys: a young team with a young star quarterback that will be a contender for years.

    Woicik spent 11 years as New England's strength and conditioning coach, equaling the number of Super Bowl rings he earned with the Cowboys of the 1990s with Bill Belichick as the head coach and Tom Brady as the supernatural quarterback. The Patriots finished 14-2 in 2010, holders of the best record in the AFC, and they have a plethora of early-round draft picks to supplement an already strong roster.

    Nothing in Green Bay or New England suggests any sort of impending downturn.

    So why would they leave for a franchise that has won one playoff game since 1996 and finished 6-10 in 2010?

    The answer is easy: Jason Garrett.
