Cowboys head coach Bill Parcells has hired Vincent Brown to coach inside linebackers.
Brown, who joined the Cowboys in training camp last summer as a volunteer coach, played eight seasons in the NFL, including three under Parcells in New England. Brown spent his entire career with the Patriots from 1988-95.
Defensive assistant Mike MacIntyre, who has served as assistant defensive backs coach two years ago, will now coach the safeties, helping defensive backs coach Todd Bowles.
