Update: Stewart headed to Cowboys
Chargers defensive backs coach Brian Stewart has been released from his contract and will become the Dallas Cowboys' defensive coordinator.
Cowboys head coach Wade Phillips was the Chargers defensive coordinator from 2004-06. He has been trying to hire Stewart since he left.
The Chargers had initially balked at letting Stewart out of his contract but relented Saturday.
Stewart joined the Chargers in 2004.
The team on Wednesday hired Bill Bradley to coach the secondary with Stewart. The team plans on hiring a replacement for Stewart.
