The Dallas Cowboys have re-signed coach John Garrett as tight ends coach and passing game coordinator. John Garrett, Jason Garrett's older brother, was in Miami earlier this week interviewing for the offensive coordinator vacancy.
Jason La Confora from NFL.com reports that while John Garrett was being considered for the role in Miami, the Cowboys preempted the Dolphins' decision by signing Garrett today.
While Jason Garrett will retain the title of offensive coordinator, John Garrett has been elevated to passing game coordinator in addition to his duties as tight ends coach. It stands to reason that the Cowboys will at some point also name a running game coordinator. Todd Archer from ESPNDallas points out that this is not unprecedented in Dallas: under Parcells, Sean Payton ('05) and Todd Haley ('06) were passing game coordinators while Tony Sparano was the coordinator for the running game.
