Waiting on the Tuna as the coaching carousel moves

The waiting is the hardest part
Every day you see one more card
You take it on faith, you take it to the heart
The waiting is the hardest part
- Tom Petty The Waiting

C'mon Tuna, make up your mind so we can get things rolling on the defensive coordinator front, and any other changes that may occur. Hopefully, Jones and Parcells are using this time to get a feel for what coaches are going to be available, knowing that the Tuna will be back .

According to Mosley, we might lose Coach David Lee.

I'm told that Cowboys offensive assistant David Lee is the leading candidate for the recently vacated offensive coordinator position at the University of Arkansas.

Lee, who helped mentor eventual first-round draft pick Matt Jones as the school's quarterbacks coach, came to Dallas with Bill Parcells in 2003.

He turned down the Arkansas OC job after last season in order to stay in the league, but with Parcells' future in limbo, I don't think he'll turn it down this time.

Tony Romo gives Lee most of the credit for his development over the past four years and is taking him to the Pro Bowl next month as a show of thanks.

In a diary, silverblue5 takes a look at the possibility of the Cowboys going after DC Wade Phillips if San Diego blows up the Marty Schottenheimer staff.

Meanwhile, Parcells' close friend Dan Henning got the boot in Carolina. Is it possible Parcells has interest in bringing his friend to Dallas?
