The Dallas Cowboys want to be like the Green Bay Packers, and they’re starting by picking up one of the Packers’ assistant coaches.
Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com first reported that Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett had interviewed Packers wide receivers coach Jimmy Robinson, and shortly after the reports first surfaced, the Cowboys announced that they had hired Robinson.
Robinson was the Giants’ receivers coach from 2000 to 2003, when Garrett was their backup quarterback. Robinson has also been on the staffs of the Saints, Colts and Falcons, as well as Georgia Tech and the Memphis Showboats of the USFL. He spent six years as an NFL wide receiver with the Giants, 49ers and Broncos.
The Cowboys were in need of a receivers coach because Garrett decided not to retain Ray Sherman.
