Paul Pasqualoni takes over the linebackers

Over at the Dallas Cowboys official site they're running a series of articles profiling the assistant coaches. Today's coach is Paul Paqualoni. After spending last year coaching the tight ends, he's moved over to the other side of the ball to handle what might be the most important crew on the defense - especially in a 3-4 scheme - the linebackers.

Still, Pasqualoni admits linebackers are his specialty. The coach lettered at the position at Penn State and coached linebackers throughout his rise as a collegiate assistant.

As head coach from 1991-2004 at Syracuse, Pasqualoni's program produced several NFL defensive stars, guys such as Colts pass-rusher Dwight Freeney and Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck. So Pasqualoni knows his defense. And if he could turn DeMarcus Ware and Bradie James into Freeney and Bulluck clones, it would be a job well done.


You got that right; I'm looking for Ware and James to become stars this year.

By the way, the Cowboys website is also running a video series with Anthony Henry and Chris Canty. Some interesting stuff, go check it out.
