Lastly the speculation is about who will replace DeCamillis as leader of the Special Teams units. The first names to surface were former Cowboys Kicking Specialist Coach Steve Hoffman and Bobby April, a long time Special Teams coach in the NFL. Thursday another interesting name surfaced, Rich Bisaccia. He has been around the NFL ranks as a Special Teams Coach for 30 years. His intensity is well known and his players love him. Why he might not come, is because he recently accepted a position at Auburn University. Why he might come, is because he worked with Marinelli and Kiffin at Tampa Bay.
The last bit of speculation is that all of this is a precursor to Jerry Jones making a big splash around Super Bowl time and firing Jason Garrett to hire Monday Night Football co-host and former Super Bowl winning Head Coach, Jon Gruden out of the booth and onto the Cowboys hallowed grounds. Forget that nonsense folks. Gruden and Kiffin do not get along. At a recent party to celebrate the ten year anniversary of the Buccaneers Super Bowl victory, the two men exchanged an uncomfortable handshake, no pleasantries and a few icy stares. This is not Chucky quietly pulling the strings and Jerry is being coy. This is Jason Garrett, doing what football coaches do every off season when there is turnover on their staff. They fill it out.
Senior Bowl next week, expect a preview of players the Cowboys may be keeping an eye on for their pick at number 18.
