Cowboys hire two coaches including Dat Nguyen

New, comments

Per the DFW S-T:

The Cowboys hired two assistant coaches Tuesday and are expected to add a third soon.

The Cowboys hired former linebacker Dat Nguyen as defensive quality control/linebackers coach and Wesley Phillips as offensive assistant coach/quality control. Wesley Phillips is the son of head coach Wade Phillips.

Tennessee wide receivers coach Ray Sherman, who interviewed with the Cowboys Tuesday, is also expected to join the Cowboys staff as receivers coach.

Good stuff. I'm glad to see Dat back. And I like the hire of Ray Sherman if it happens, he's a guy with a ton of experience.

We are interviewing some other guys.

The Cowboys will also interview Oakland Raiders running backs coach Skip Peete, Wisconsin offensive coordinator Paul Chryst and University of Virginia assistant head coach for offense/wide receivers coach John Garrett.

Peete joined the Raiders in 1998 as running backs coach. He is the brother of former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete.

Garrett is the brother of Cowboys assistant Jason Garrett.

Inside linebackers coach Vincent Brown will not return to the Cowboys staff.

We hired Wade's son, and are interviewing Garrett's brother. It really is a family affair out at Valley Ranch. Let's just hope they can coach, too.
