Joe Whitt was not hired as the Cowboys’ defensive coordinator, but interviews for his position seemed to go well.
NFL Media’s Tom Pelissero reports that Whitt will be the team’s vice coach and defense coordinator.
Witt had the same role as the Falcons last season so he will move to Dallas with former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn. Quinn was hired as Cowboys Defense Coordinator this week.
Whitt has also been an employee of Mike McCarthy in Green Bay from 2008-2018, so Quinn will not be the only former boss he will work with in 2021.
