Brett Maxie gets interest from Tennessee
By Calvin Watkins
According to a source, Cowboys safeties coach Brett Maxie will interview with the Tennessee Titans to become the new secondary coach.
Tennessee asked the Cowboys for permission to speak with Maxie. The Washington Redskins also could make a move toward Maxie.
Marcus Robertson, who spent the last five seasons with the Titans, was released last week.
Maxie did not return a phone call seeking comment.
Maxie has spent the past four seasons on the Cowboys staff as a safeties coach.
The Cowboys are expected to finalize the hiring of former Cleveland Browns secondary coach Jerome Henderson, maybe as soon as Monday, according to a source.
Also, Hudson Houck, has retired as the offensive line coach and will be replaced by former Oakland Raiders coach Bill Callahan. Callahan spent the last four seasons with the New York Jets.
