Cowboys may hire Pats' strength coach

After 11 seasons with the New England Patriots, strength and conditioning coach Mike Woicik could be headed back to the Dallas Cowboys, sources told ESPNDallas and ESPNBoston.

Woicik is scheduled to fly in to Dallas Wednesday to talk to the Cowboys.

Woicik is the only player or coach with six Super Bowl rings, having won three with Dallas (1992, '94-95) and three with Patriots (2001, '03-04). He was the Cowboys strength coach from 1990-96 before spending the next three years in New Orleans. The Cowboys were 89-38 during his seven seasons, including 12 playoff wins.

A Massachusetts native, he joined the Patriots in 2000 when Bill Belichick took over as coach.

Woicik's contract with the Patriots was set to expire after the 2010 season, according to sources, and the sides have not reached an extension. That has opened the door for him to land elsewhere. Woicik has a connection with Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, as Woicik was the strength coach in Dallas during Garrett's first four seasons as a backup quarterback with the club.
