After making two hires on Tuesday, Phillips added two more assistants on Wednesday: Veteran coach Ray Sherman and John Garrett, the brother of Jason Garrett.
Sherman, who spent the last two years as the Tennessee Titans' wide receivers coach, will coach the receivers in Dallas.
Garrett, the Cowboys' new tight ends coach, coached at the University of Virginia the last two years but has been on NFL staffs in Cincinnati and Arizona.
A third job candidate, Oakland running backs coach Skip Peete, was scheduled to arrive in Dallas on Wednesday night and interview with the Cowboys on Thursday.
Jerry Jones and Don Perkins are being honored.
Jones, along with former Cowboys running back Don Perkins, will be honored at a special banquet in Waco, Texas.
And even for someone who grew up and played college football in Arkansas, Jones said being honored as a Texas legend is quite an achievement.
Along with Jones and Perkins, the other six inductees are Warren Moon, Billy Sims, DeLoss Dodds, Cynthia Cooper, Roosevelt Leaks and Rafer Johnson.
Update on contracts:
The Cowboys apparently are not far along in contract talks with right tackle Marc Colombo or even quarterback Tony Romo, who has one year remaining on the extension he signed last August.
