Cowboys interviewing Mike Nolan for assistant job

The Cowboys are still looking to replace departed defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson, and are looking at a pair of veterans.

According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Cowboys are talking to former 49ers head coach Mike Nolan and former Steelers and Giants defensive coordinator Tim Lewis.

Henderson left the Cowboys for a title, becoming the defensive passing game coordinator with the Falcons.

Nolan was the Chargers’ linebackers coach last year, and hasn’t coached the secondary. He spent four years as the 49ers’ head coach and has three stints as a coordinator since then, with the Broncos, Dolphins and Falcons.

    Considering his father was once one of Tom Landry’s top assistants around the Ice Bowl era, I think this would be a nice fit.

    I just hope he can make the secondary better.

    Funny the story says he “left for a title”. That seems disingenuous given the he might get experience in ATL that he wasn’t getting in Dallas. IF Dallas was so great for his career aspirations, he would have stayed.

    IMHO, our q/b’s coach should be evaluated closely! It was a travesty that Wilson did not do a better job with our back-up q/bs’…..smh

    Okay, but our recent defensive backs coach must not have been very good.
