Its a pretty good gig for an entry level. QC is basically just charting film and collecting data. With assistant LB tag, he may also about to some hands on coach which QC coaches never do
Developing new coaches is a process. This is a great opportunity for him. Generally it’s the average or marginal players who go into coaching. The stars made enough money they tend to not want these jobs because it’s a lot of hours for little pay relative to what they made as players
I like the idea of bringing guys back and always thought Sean Lee could be a really good coach

Hard to imagine we could do worse than this hire. For a professional franchise to hire a position coach with zero coaching experience

I like to complain about how the Cowboys are run as much as anyone…but this is a nothing story. Thompson wants to get into coaching and the Cowboys are giving him a non-important entry level role. Who cares?

Hey Einstein, we don't need 10 QC/QB coaches guys. Thats been the issue with Dak. Its insane.
Umm. The issue with Dak is too many quality control coaches? Sounds like you have no idea what you are talking about

Makes sense that a safety would coach the linebackers
By that logic, how could Andy Andy Reid or Mike Holmgren come up as quarterback coaches?

Bill Walsh, Bill Parcells, Bill Belichick, Marv Levy, Jimmy Johnson, Don Coryell, John Harbaugh, Sean McVay, Mike Tomlin.... what is their pedigree?

- Darian signing sounds like a safety- nickel assistant role ..already odd that there's rumors about " too many unneccessary coaches" ..... or " overpaid " coaches ? ..

- Ditto with Sheriff Floyd DT coach sign hiring ... did cowboys see a new-improved DT with possiblle disappointing in non-development of Gallimore,, Osa, Bohanna ..?

- or could it have been the poor play vs run with the DTs ,,.. that decided Lett's departure ?

20 bucks says Ben DiNucci is the QB Coach.
DINucci - in his debut as the XFL Seattle Sea Dragons QB___
• 35/54 for 282 yds = 8+ yds per completions, 5.2 yds per attempt.
• His team was up 18 -8 in the 3rd qtr; from that point on:
• Diucci threw 2 INTs - the first one a pick six, the second one was converted by the D.C. Defenders into a go-ahead TD.
• WIth a chance to redeem himself by directing a comeback victory for his team ------ DiNucci fumbles the ball at the D.C. one yard line with under a half-minute left in the game.
