Frisco-Our Dallas Cowboys Coach Tracker… As an “American Team”, you can keep track of the situation at any time to make decisions for the coaching team…
Wednesday afternoon: Jones and Edwards meet In addition to the George Edwards coordinator interview conducted by head coach Mike McCarthy over the weekend (prior to the subsequent hiring of Dan Quinn), the Jones family now also visited the Cowboys Senior Assistant Yim with Edwards. This kind of identity stays in the stars. .
The former Viking coordinator Edwards came here a year ago not as a staff member of Mike Nolan, but as McCarthy. He used to be the same Dolphins employee as Quinn. He used to serve as a linebacker for the Cowboys.
Wednesday morning: WHITT JR.Debut The Cowboys got their wish: Head coach Mike McCarthy stepped down to Joe Whitt Jr. as his “defensive pass coordinator/secondary coach.”
Whitt has worked for McCarthy’s Packers for ten years and is likely to be assisted by former Packers player Al Harris, who joined Dallas as a DB coach last year. With Whitt joining, Mo Linquist may leave.
Dallas is still working hard to add a new D-line coach. We have covered Tosh Lupoi and Travis Jones. (See below.) Now add Giff Smith to the mix.
Tuesday morning: Coach Campbell? Can former Cowboys tight-tight Dan Campbell become the next head coach of the Detroit Lions? A source told CowboysSI.com that although Niners coordinator Robert Saleh became a favorite, Detroit has “influence in the building” that may “favor” to promote Campbell-Campbell, who was formally interviewed for the work on Monday -Put it on the front of the backpack.
Campbell is currently the assistant head coach of the New Orleans Saints and in 2015 was the interim head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Campbell is 44 years old. He is a native of Clifton, Texas, and a product of Texas A&M. He will bring an ancient method to Lions staff.
Monday afternoon: final words “Grace, character, and brotherhood”…Dan Quinn signed a three-year contract. Want a background? Read here: “Dan Quinn’s “last word” means the Dallas Cowboys hired him as defensive coordinator.”
Monday morning: QUINN STAFF? Dan Quinn’s second interview (face-to-face) was held on Monday, and one of the themes was the proposed staff composition.
Quinn plus Joe Whitt Jr. (as best defensive assistant, with titles like “passing coordinator”) are the ideas of many people in The Star. Whitt will take over from the middle school, which is a failed 2019 selection under McCarthy.
Potential obstacles: What if Raheem Morris gets the head coaching position in Atlanta? In that case, Whitt could stay there as his coordinator. …This may result in Jason Simmons getting the job of “pass coordinator/secondary school”.
In addition, the Dallas (D-line) coach position is vacant. Ownership wants to retain Leon Lett as an assistant. If he can get an interesting name through Atlanta’s changes, it would be Quinn’s 2019 defensive line coach and game coordinator Tosh Lupoi. On his resume is five seasons in Alabama. Another name: Travis Jones, another employee in Atlanta who also returned to LSU with Nick Saban.
Of course, Dallas is tending to return to the 4-3 defense and hope that someone with experience will serve as a “teacher.”
We will note that although Dallas seems to be about to end Quinn, an official interview with senior staff George Edwards has already taken place. Details are here.
The same: Although McCarthy definitely wants to keep Scott McCurley as a guard coach, the front office will speak there-Sean Lee may want to start a coaching career, he has retired.
Monday morning: QUINN interview The Dallas Cowboys have added their list of candidates to the hands of defensive coordinator Dant Quinn, the former head coach of the Atlanta Falcons.
Quinn was the head coach of the Falcons from 2015 to 2020, and this game included a pair of playoff berths that won the Super Bowl in 2016.

Click above. The coordinator’s certificate is impressive… and then read the following, this is not necessarily Mike McCarthy’s “guy”… This may be a good thing.
Sunday afternoon: This is “McCarthy’s Treasure”, but… The source told CowboysSI.com that this was “McCarthy’s employment.” However, we were also told that during the interview, there might be a “high-level front desk supervisor” visiting.
Sunday afternoon: Carolina State Assistant Interview When the Panthers defensive pass coordinator/secondary Jason Simmons was interviewing for the coordinator position in Dallas, another candidate came to light. According to an ESPN interview, Mike McCarthy and Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys are included. This information is consistent with our report, which stated that a senior front office executive will participate in the McCarthy interview.
One might think that Simmons and McCarthy are working together in Green Bay.
Sunday morning: package deal? A year ago, the head coach of the Dallas Cowboys, Mike McCarthy, planned to hire Joe Whitt as his defensive coordinator, and then the job eventually transferred to another McCarthy’s friend, the current president Mike McCarthy. Nolan (Mike Nolan).
Joe Whitt Jr. is back and interviewed the vacancy this weekend. Perhaps one of the most fascinating things about him is who might appear with him. Given that he was the “passing coordinator” of the Atlanta team last year, he ranked last in the NFL pass defense.
The source pointed out to CowboysSI.com that although McCarthy had no special connection with former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, Whitt obviously did-Quinn was the person who hired Whitt in Atlanta. Furthermore, if Quinn can also come to The Star as a defensive coach, then McCarthy’s idea of hiring Whit (head coach) may be more palatable.
If McCarthy gets his wish and hires Whitt-there is no guarantee there, because other viable candidates, including the current cowboy consultant George Edwards (George Edwards), are also worth discussing)-this increases the number of other McCarthy employees retaining their jobs possibility. If Edwards is hired, he may require some personnel changes, just like most others are brought in from outside.
But what if McCarthy can attract Whit and Quinn (to be fair, he must have a higher eye than a position coach)? The Jones family may be impressed, leaving McCarthy’s remaining defensive personnel to impress themselves.
Saturday afternoon: Edwards A wise and “easy” move? Promote George Edwards. Former Viking coordinator Edwards is already in the building, but technically it is not part of Nolan’s staff.

He may represent a compromise between the Jones family and McCarthy.
Saturday morning: I want to have an interview-push it Joe Whitt Jr. is a wise name for McCarthy.

However, even though Whitt had contacts with Green Bay, he could not fully use his last season in Atlanta as a resume builder.
Friday afternoon: Top-ranked DC candidates We have created a list… some of them are our names, but most of them are names from inside the building or names that are clearly related to the name inside the building.
