Here is what we know right now, today. Joe DeCamillis, Skip Peete, Rob Ryan, and Brian Baker are gone from the 2012 Dallas Cowboys coaching staff. DeCamillis and Peete have landed on the Bears. Rob Ryan may land on the St. Louis Rams as their Defensive signal caller. Brian Baker may head for the college ranks where he dreams of one day being a Head Coach. I think he’d be a very good one by the way.
Monte Kiffin has replaced Rob Ryan, and as of Friday January 18, 2013, Rod Marinelli, former Head Coach of the Detroit Lions, and most recently the Chicago bears Defensive Coordinator, has replaced Baker and will be the Defensive Line Coach. Jerome Henderson and Wade Wilson are staying. So is Jason Garrett, as Head Coach, much to the chagrin of many in the Dallas Ft. Worth media, and a lot of Cowboys fans.
Here is what has been speculated, but not verified as of right now. Houston Nutt was going to replace Skip Peete, except he really wasn’t and the Cowboys still need a Running Back Coach. John Garrett has applied to be the Head Coach of the Delaware Fighting Blue Hens in the college football ranks. Delaware is actually a powerhouse team at their level of college football. It could be a springboard job for John Garrett if he lands that gig. Some are speculating that he is not well liked, but no one should doubt the success of Jason Garrett and how much respect he has for John.
The big speculation is that Jerry Jones wants Jason Garrett to give up play calling duties. The rumors circulating the Internet were that there were three possible candidates. The first is an in house candidate, Offensive Line Coach Bill Callahan. The other two reported candidates are shrouded in mystery. No one seems to know who they are. Two names who have surfaced are Mike Mularky, the recently fired Jacksonville Jaguars Head Coach who worked with Garrett on the Dolphins, and Cam Cameron, recently fired by the Baltimore Ravens for failing to utilize Ray Rice enough in his game plans. Cameron also worked with Garrett on the Dolphins, and when Garrett was rumored to be the Head Coach choice of the Ravens and Atlanta Falcons before opting to remain in Dallas as the heir apparent to Wade Phillips, Cameron was his choice as Offensive Coordinator.
