Longtime Giants assistant Mike Pope heads to Dallas

Martellus Bennett, Michael Pope AP

The intra-divisional shuffling of tight ends coaches in the NFC East continues.

And the Cowboys — for whom Monte Kiffin still works — got older in the exchange.

According to Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports, the Cowboys will add longtime Giants tight ends coach Mike Pope.

Pope will replace the Wes Phillips (the son of Wade), who went to Washington.

Pope has long been regarded as an excellent position coach, but was part of the shakeup in New York which followed the hiring of offensive coordinator Ben McAdoo. But he was also part of all four Giants Super Bowl-winning staffs, making it an unusual transition.

    Finally … someone with a Superbowl ring in Dallas from this millennia. Never thought I’d see the day.

    How does a lifelong coach for the Giants stomach taking a job with the Dallas Cowboys?

    Youth infusion.

    Did Jerry Jones finally make a good hire, or did someone else make this decision for him?

    Another brilliant Jones decision. Hire a TE coach that has no clue on how to use a TE made for this millennium.
