WEDNESDAY PM: JONESES MEET EDWARDS In addition to a coordinated George Edwards interview conducted by head coach Mike McCarthy over the weekend. (Prior to Dan Quinn’s later hiring), the Jones family visited Edwards with Edwards about the idea of a Senior Cowboys aide, still at The Star in part.
Edwards, a former Vikings coordinator, came here last year, not as a Mike Nolan employee, 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? Will Dan Campbell’s Diet Cowboys be the next Detroit Lions head coach? A source told CowboysSI.com.

Monday: QUINN STAFF? Dan Quinn’s second interview (face-to-face) will take place on Monday, and one of the topics will be the makeup proposed by his team.
Quinn and Joe Witt, Jr. (As a top defense assistant with titles like “Pass Game Coordinator” or something) was the idea of many in The Star, Whitt, to take over the vice, which was a failure under the clutches of McCarthy-recruited staff in the year. 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 give Jason Simmons the job. “Coordinator / Deputy”
There is also a vacancy in Dallas where D-line ownership coaches want to keep Leon Lett in an assistant role. An interesting name if he is free from a change in Atlanta is Tosh Lupoi, Quinn’s 2019 defensive coach and run game coordinator. On his resume is a five-season spree at Alabama, another title: Travis Jones, another Atlanta employee with Nick Saban at LSU.
Of course, Dallas is leaning towards 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 McCarthy to coach the quarterback players. But the front office does have a word there, and so is Sean Lee’s readiness as a retired player looking to start a coaching career.

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, since Quinn was the man who hired Whitt in Atlanta, moreover, the idea that McCarthy could find a way too. 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 are no guarantees yet, while other potential candidates, including current Cowboys adviser George Edward), would add. Chances are other McCarthy agents keep their jobs. In the event that Edwards is hired, he may push for some staff changes, as well as most others imported 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.
