Cowboys hiring Greg Jackson as safeties coach

The Cowboys lost defensive backs coach Jerome Henderson to the Falcons last month and it appears their search for his replacement has come to an end.

Actually, search for his replacements looks like it is more accurate. According to multiple reports, University of Michigan defensive backs coach Greg Jackson will head to Dallas as the team’s safeties coach and Ian Rapoport of NFL Media adds that Joe Baker will work with the cornerbacks.

Jackson spent more than a decade as an NFL safety before becoming a coach in 2003. He worked his way through the college ranks, became a member of Jim Harbaugh’s staff with the 49ers in 2011 and went with Harbaugh to Ann Arbor before the 2015 season.

Baker was hired to work alongside Henderson in 2012. He has also worked for the Buccaneers, Broncos, Rams, Saints and Jaguars.

    Oh my God! You guys seriously declaring SB? This why other fans despise the Cowboys. A little humility and patience goes a long way. Keep in mind whom the GM is.

    The article reports the facts but I would really like to hear from somebody that really knows if this is a good hire. At least he has credentials and he’s been there and done that.
