Cowboys fire defensive coordinator Brian Stewart

New, comments

Things are definitely changing out at Valley Ranch. First, reports that OC Jason Garrett might be on his way to being the next head coach in St. Louis surfaced. Now, on a Friday afternoon out of nowhere, the Cowboys fired DC Brian Stewart.

The Cowboys made a bombshell announcement this afternoon. The team has released defensive coordinator Brian Stewart. He spent two years on the staff and was widely viewed as Wade Phillips' right-hand man.

What's the theory here? Is it just a straight-up firing of a guy who lost command of the defense and had some of his responsibilities taken away mid-season? Or is there something bigger afoot out at the Ranch?
