MOBILE, Ala. -- Dallas Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones said he wanted to announce the hiring of a new special teams coach Tuesday, but as of the afternoon that decision wasn't finalized.

A source said there are two finalist for the position, left vacant when Joe DeCamillis took a position as the Chicago Bears' special teams coach/assistant head coach. Bruce DeHaven and Alan Lowry are the finalists.

DeHaven was let go by the Buffalo Bills this past season. He's had two stints with the Bills, from 2010-12 and from 1987-99. DeHaven was also the special teams coach for the Cowboys from 2003-06.

Lowry spent 17 years with the Tennessee Titans, the last 14 as the special teams coach. However, Lowry is a former Cowboys assistant coach. His first NFL job was a special teams coach position from 1982-85. Lowry was a also a wide receivers and tight ends coach for the Cowboys. He became the the Cowboys' special teams coach in the first year Jerry Jones purchased the team in 1989.
