Intriguing to me how Zimmer has such a history of rarely ever hiring any of his former staff members. Yes, he wanted his old pal Andre Patterson for the job, but was stonewalled by NYG, but that's been the exception. Wonder what his thinking is. Part of it, no doubt, is just exactly this thing where you can't get guys you'd like to have if they're under contract. But it's plausible he actually prefers to work with new faces. Dunno.

Was a true Nose so that's a plus.

Was a winner so that's a plus.

Earned his spot, unlike many Cowboys assistant hires, so that's a plus. Has been an assistant coach since 2013.

Coached Allen and Pane for the Washington Whatevers, so that's a plus.

Along with Zimmer, hopefully can influence the Cowboys to actually address the run defense and not just play it lip-service.

Big plus for Mazi. Osa should shine

You hire assistants that fit your scheme and more importantly, someone that can address your players weaknesses
