Our FRISCO – Dallas Cowboys Coach Tracker …. Let you know as “Team America” coaching staff …

And yes, as ESPN notes in the report, Mayer was linked with Linehan, who served as Dallas’ offensive coordinator before being swept up with head coach Jason Garrett after the 2019 season.
That was part of the business, but Linehan is also a former NFL head coach … who was at LSU last year … and can now roll back onto the set – give that. Advised the number 1 likely to choose QB Trevor Lawrence – with a trust that Meyer clearly had in him.
Thursday AM: EAGLES WANT KELLEN MOORE TO VISIT Remember when Cowboys COO Stephen Jones advised Kellen Moore to pass Boise State to “be patient” instead?
Kellen Moore now sees why.
Doug Pederson is now gone and the Philadelphia Phillies are struggling … and has now asked for an interview with the Cowboys Moore’s offensive coordinator, according to ESPN. hold
Moore, 32, signed a three-year deal at the end of the 2020 season to stay with the Cowboys, thus leaving his old school job in Boise. We suggest that Moore’s lack of status. The “top runner” in Philly, agent Bob LaMonte has a lot to say about hiring eventually. But that doesn’t make the Cowboys a little sweaty.
WEDNESDAY PM: JONESES MEET EDWARDS In addition to a coordinator George Edwards interview conducted by head coach Mike McCarthy at 8am Monday (prior to Dan Quinn’s subsequent hiring), the Jones family visited Edwards with Edwards about his thoughts. Senior Cowboys assistant who is still at The Star in some capacity.
Edwards, a former Vikings coordinator, came here last year, not as an employee of Mike Nolan, but as an employee of McCarthy.He was once on the same Dolphins team as Quinn and he was once coached by the Cowboys.
WEDNESDAY AM: WHITT JR came on board. The Cowboys are given two wishes: Head coach Mike McCarthy has signed Joe Whitt Jr. as the “defensive game coordinator / vice coach.” Whitt was allowed to leave his contract in Atlanta. (Which may occur under Whoever the Falcon hires as the next coach) and gets a two-year contract here.
Whitt spent a decade on McCarthy’s Packers crew and will likely be helped by Al Harris, a former Packers player who joined Dallas last year as DB coach.When Whitt took over, Mo Linquist is likely to leave.
Dallas is also working on adding a new D-line coach.We previously reported on Tosh Lupoi and Travis Jones (see below), now Giff Smith is added to the mix.
Tuesday: Coach Campbell? Could ex-Cowboys be Dan Campbell be the Detroit Lions’ next head coach? A source told CowboysSI.com. That while the Niners coordinator Robert Saleh went into the process as a favorite, there was A “ building influence ” in Detroit that could be ‘favored’, so it pushed Campbell, who was officially interviewed for the event Monday – to the front of the pack.
Campbell is currently assistant head coach for the New Orleans Saints team and in 2015 is interim head coach for the Miami Dolphins. Campbell, 44, is a native of Clifton, Texas and is a product. Of Texas A&M and will bring an old school approach to the Lions team.
Monday: last words ‘Grace, character and brotherhood’ … Dan Quinn came to the event for three years. Want a background? Read here: What Dan Quinn’s “Last Words” mean while the Dallas Cowboys hired him as Defense Coordinator. ”
Monday: QUINN STAFF? Dan Quinn’s second interview (face-to-face) is coming up on Monday, and one of the topics will be the make-up offered by his staff.
Quinn and Joe Witt, Jr. (As a top defense assistant with titles like “ Game Delivery Coordinator ” or something) was the idea of many at The Starwitt to take over the vice, a failure at the hands of McCarthy-auditioned. Employees in 2019
Potential Obstacle: What if Raheem Morris is offered as head coach in Atlanta? In that event, Whitt was able to be there as his coordinator … which might have given Jason Simmons a job. “Coordinator / Deputy”
There was also a vacancy in Dallas that D-line ownership coach wanted to keep Leon Lett in an assistant role. An interesting name if he is free from the Atlanta transition is Tosh Lupoi, Quinn’s 2019 defensive coach and run game coordinator. On his resume is five seasons at Alabama, another title: Travis Jones, another Atlanta employee with Nick Saban at LSU.
Of course, Dallas is leaning toward a 4-3 return to defense and have people run the vice experienced as a “teacher”.
We’ll note that while Dallas appears to be getting closer to Quinn, there’s an official interview with Senior Staff George Edwards detailed here.
Also: While McCarthy wanted Scott McCurrley to coach the defenders. But the front office will have a word there, and so is Sean Lee’s readiness as a retired player looking to start a coaching career.
Monday: interview with Quinn The Dallas Cowboys has added a list of candidates to take over as defense coordinator Dan Quinn, former Atlanta Falcons head coach.
Quinn has been the Falcons head coach from 2015-2020, a run that included a double berth with a Super Bowl in 2016.

Click above the coordinator credentials are impressive … then read below that this doesn’t have to be Mike McCarthy’s “ man ” … which might be a good thing.
SUNDAY PM: It’s ‘MCCARTHY’S HIRE’ but … The source told CowboysSI.com that it was “an employment of McCarthy.”
SUNDAY PM: Interview with Assistant CAROLINA Another candidate took over, while the Panthers Defense Coordinator / Deputy / Deputy Coordinator Jason Simmons interviewed the Dallas-based visitation coordinators, including Mike McCarthy and Jerry Jones. For the Dallas Cowboys, that information is consistent with our report that the office’s top management will participate in McCarthy’s interviews.
Simmons and McCarthy might have guessed working together in Green Bay.
Sunday AM: Package Deal? Last year, Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy was hiring Joe Whitt as defensive coordinator before the job was over with another McCarthy’s friend, outcast Mike Nolan.
Joe Whitt Jr. is back in action, giving an interview this weekend looking for a vacancy. And it’s probably one of the most interesting things about him – from his work last year as The “ pass game coordinator ” for the Atlanta team that finished last in the NFL in defense – is the one who might have come along with him.
The source stated with CowboysSI.com says that while McCarthy was not affiliated with former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, Whitt did, as Quinn was the man who hired Whitt in Atlanta. Hiring Whitt (which the head coach is pushing for) would have been more palatable if Quinn could come to The Star as well as a defense coach.
If McCarthy finds a way and hires Whitt – there’s no guarantee whatsoever, as other potential candidates, including current Cowboy Adviser George Edward, should also be discussed.) This increases the likelihood that other McCarthy agents will keep their jobs. In the event that Edwards is hired, he may push for some staffing changes, as most others import from outside.
But if McCarthy could seduce Whitt and Quinn (who would have a higher view of him than coaching the title)? Jones may be impressed enough that McCarthy can find a way about the remaining defensive officers.
SATURDAY PM: EASY EDWARDS A smart and “easy” movement? Elevate George Edwards Edward, former Viking coordinator, is now in the building. But not technically part of Officer Nolan.
