A staff in flux

Nick Eatman breaks it down at

After losing a pair of coaches in the last two weeks, the Cowboys have officially added one, naming Chris Palmer the team's quarterbacks coach on Monday.

The Cowboys did not make any other coaching announcements on Monday, but probably will in the near future. Last season, David Lee served as quarterbacks coach, but he is still under contract and expected to be on the staff next year.

One possibility is that Lee will coach tight ends next season, and Paul Pasqualoni, who coached the tight ends last year, will move over to coach linebackers, replacing Gary Gibbs. However, with Lee going into his fourth season on the staff, the Cowboys could even promote him to passing game coordinator, a title head by Sean Payton last season.

Also, don't count out wide receivers coach Todd Haley to get into the mix. Haley has been on the staff the past two seasons and could fill the role as passing game coordinator, as well. The entire coaching staff and assignments should be finalized within the next two weeks.

With all the changes, nothing much will change. It's Parcells' team after all.
