Longtime Giants assistant Mike Pope heads to Dallas


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.
