Familiar names, new jobs could dot Cowboys schedule
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas – The Cowboys will play five games against teams with new coaches next season, but they might have to prepare for only three new faces, possibly two.
Andy Reid is closing in on becoming Kansas City’s new head coach after a 14-year run in Philadelphia, and the Cowboys will visit Arrowhead Stadium in 2013. Reid had a 17-12 record against the Cowboys, including the playoffs, but he started strong with a 10-2 mark. The Cowboys swept the Eagles in 2012.
Chicago and San Diego also will have new head coaches in 2013. The Bears are scheduled to meet with Cowboys special-teams coordinator Joe DeCamillis on Saturday, so he could be another familiar face among the opposition if he lands the gig.
This doesn’t include New Orleans getting Sean Payton back on the sidelines in 2013 after his one-year suspension.
