    Chargers announced they're retaining Joe Barry.

    FWIW, Eberflus reportedly impressed Kiffin in his interview, and he installed and ran the Tampa 4-3 scheme for years when he was DC at Mizzou.

    I was worried that eberflus was going to join that hairy, fat, loud-mouth that he came with to dallas...I hope that he stays, he is very good for the staff....

    I figure that nugget about him running the 4-3 is worth quite a bit. Combine that with the fact that Ryan didn't actually get the Rams job, and out defensive staff might be set.

    He may realize he can forge his own brand. Hope he stays.

    Reportedly when he decided to shift Mizzou to a Tampa 2, he went to a lot of clinics hosted by the Lovie and Tony Dungy to learn the system. He's probably networked quite a bit with Tampa 2 NFL coaches.


    I was never concerned about him leaving Dallas for Ryan. a) He's under contract, and couldn't go anywhere unless the Cowboys let him. b) Rob Ryan may not have had any power in St. Louis to bring in his own staff working under two already established DC coaches in Fisher and McGinnis who have already implemented their own system and staff. c) Eberflus might not necessarily want to hitch his coaching career wagon to a guy who seems to constantly wear out his welcome and is looking for his 4th DC job in the last 6 years.

    The only question is if Dallas would choose/be able to get Barry to come over to coach LB's instead, since Barry has coached with Marinelli and Kiffin for years and years and is Marinelli's son-in-law.

    Seeing that Ryan doesn't have a job yet, he may have decided to secure himself instead of waiting and hoping.

    I'd like to see him stay. I thought he did a great job with the linebackers, especially considering the numerous challenges the group faced.

    Last night the local Espn Dallas guys were saying that we did want Barry but SD wouldn't let him out of his contact, so Eberflus was staying...

    The DeMarcus Ware of coaches, at least, according to Rob Ryan. Although to some posters here, I guess that might not be taken as a compliment

    Here's another nugget; it makes sense since it's been reported that Jerry wants to surround Garrett with as many experienced coaches as possible.

    I'm really loving the defensive staff they have put together.

    He might be sick of hitching his car to the trainwreck known as Rob Ryan.

    You've earned yourself another pat on the head from the owner.

    I just feel fortunate how everything is working out perfectly for the Cowboys.

    If I were an up and coming coach, and I had the option to hitch my career to Kiffen or RR, it would be a very easy choice.

    Just looking at the Kiffen's coaching tree . . . .

    I remember after undergraduate school (many moons ago), I went into finance. The one word of advice I never forgot was to find the most successful managing director at the firm and attach myself to his coattails (at least early on in my career).

    If Rob does end up with the Rams, he isn't going to have any of his assistants is he?

    That's good. I mean I'm not sure if he's more or less responsible for this than Rob is, but the LB play (especially given the injuries) was impressive.

    I don't how this shocks anyone. If I'm a guy like Eb, I see an opportunity to greatly expand my experience by working with a legend (and a really good coach in Marinelli as well)
