Acting fast will help Cowboys' staff search

IRVING, Texas -- With only two head coaching vacancies filled, the Cowboys are in position to pick who they want to be their next defensive coordinator -- or offensive coordinator, if they go that route -- so acting quickly is a must.
Andy Reid has been hired in Kansas City, and Doug Marrone was named the coach in Buffalo.
SportsNation: Rob Ryan Fired
Rob Ryan lost his job as the Cowboys' defensive coordinator. Should he have been fired? Will he ever be a head coach in the NFL?
• Cast your votes!
The Cowboys are looking for a defensive coordinator and running backs coach, and there is little doubt there will be more changes over the next few days.
Putting staffs together in the NFL is almost like a game of musical chairs. You don’t want to be the last one left to fill a job because the assistants you really want could be gone.
But let’s play the role of a prospective assistant coach for a moment. Let’s say you have a possible choice to join the Cowboys now or have a good feeling you will be able to join a staff with a new head coach.
I understand there is a prestige in joining the Cowboys, but Jason Garrett will be under a win-or-else shadow in 2013. A new coach in a new city will have at least a little more stability.
What job would you take?
