Coaching staff might get another hire
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys will bring back running backs coach Skip Peete, offensive quality control/wide receivers coach Keith O'Quinn and assistant offensive line coach Wes Phillips. Their contracts were up following the 2011 season.
Peete, who has worked with newly hired offensive line/offensive coordinator Bill Callahan, signed a two-year contract with the Cowboys.
The Cowboys also hired secondary coach Jerome Henderson to replace Dave Campo, whose contract wasn't renewed. Campo took the defensive coordinator job at Kansas.
Brett Maxie was asked to return but decided to become the secondary coach with the Tennessee Titans this week.
Coach Jason Garrett said he does plan to hire an assistant secondary coach to replace Maxie and help Henderson.
