As is customary for teams this time of year, the Cowboys made some scouting moves, giving a promotion to protect one of their own.
According to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com, the Cowboys are promoting Will McClay to assistant director of player personnel, and naming Tom Ciskowski director of scouting.
Ciskowski was already their assistant director of player personnel, so this makes for a cleaner business card.
McClay was apparently pursued by the Browns and Chiefs this offseason, with the Cowboys refusing permission to interview him.
McClay was previously in pro personnel, and added the title director of football research last year. He was also the head coach of the Arena League’s Dallas Desperados of the AFL from 2004 to 2008.
