The Dallas Cowboys have many vacancies to fill on their coaching staff. According to a report from David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, one of those spots has been filled.

Sanjay Lal is the new Cowboys wide receivers coach (awaits for crowd applause).

Lal comes to the Cowboys by way of the Indianapolis Colts. He’s been the wide receivers coach for the Oakland Raiders, New York Jets, Buffalo Bills, and Indy.

It’s interesting looking at the drafts Lal’s teams have had during his first seasons with each team. In each of his first two stops (Oakland and New York) the team took a receiver high in the draft (Darrius Heyward-Bey and Stephen Hill).

Dallas has approached this offseason with the goal of making the offense Dak-friendly. Maybe that means drafting a receiver in the top of the draft (Calvin Ridley, anyone?) or maybe that means implementing whatever Sanjay Lal has up his sleeve.

Whatever Sanjay has cooking, it appears the Cowboys believe it is Dak-friendly, as he is the new wide receivers coach.
