Dallas Cowboys Starting To Fill In Coaching Ranks: Henderson Retained, Other Rumors

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE

The Cowboys have found at least one keeper from Rob Ryan's defensive staff, deciding to retain secondary coach Jerome Henderson.

At least one assistant coach with the Dallas Cowboys is feeling a bit less uncomfortable.

Moore followed that up with a full article, which says that the team may also seek to retain linebacker coach Matt Eberflus.

For a full bio on Henderson, you can check out Archie's excellent profile from a year ago, when he was hired. This outlines his experience.

Jerome Henderson has a good football background and he has experience in the NFL. Henderson spent eight years in the NFL as a cornerback, so he knows what it takes to play at a high level in the league. His coaching background and credentials are pretty impressive. He spent two years coaching the New York Jets. During his time there, he coached some kid named Darrelle Revis.

When Eric Mangini took his talents to the Cleveland Browns, Henderson followed. In Cleveland he coached T.J. Ward and Joe Haden. Ward and Haden have very quickly become top players at their respected positions.

Henderson's playing career included time spent with the Patriots, Bills, Eagles and Jets.

His retention gives some credence to reports earlier that he was showing some dissatisfaction with Rob Ryan's style, after following Ryan to Dallas. It also shows some confidence in the job he has done with the secondary in his first year in Dallas, where he had to handle a depleted safety group.

The Cowboys have also decided to retain quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson, according to a Calvin Watkins report. This may be largely because of his longtime work with both Jason Garrett and Tony Romo, who both appear to think highly of him.

With continued rumors swirling that Rod Marinelli will also be joining the Cowboys defensive staff, the main positions look to be taken care of on that side of the ball. Also, new rumors have sprung up in the Twitterverse that Houston Nutt, former head coach at the University of Arkansas, among other NCAA stops, may be hired. He would likely work as the running backs coach. He is reportedly looking for a stepping stone into the NFL, and may be using the ties to Jerry Jones' alma mater as leverage.

The picture is far from complete, and it appears unlikely a special teams coach will be named before the staff heads to the Senior Bowl, but things are starting to fill in.
