Sources: Cowboys eye Rich Bisaccia for special teams
By Todd Archer
IRVING, Texas -- The Cowboys have targeted Rich Bisaccia to be their next special teams coach, according to sources, but a buyout from Auburn has yet to be finalized.
Deion Sanders joins Ben and Skin to discuss the Cowboys, Manti Te'o and more.
A move could be done Thursday.
Bisaccia has been the top target since Joe DeCamillis' departure for Chicago, but the team also met with veteran special teams coaches Bruce DeHaven and Alan Lowry at the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala.
Bisaccia spent the last two seasons as San Diego's special teams coach but joined Auburn's staff earlier in the month to coach running backs and special teams.
From 2002-10, Bisaccia worked as Tampa Bay's special teams coach and has a history with new defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and defensive line coach Rod Marinelli.
Bisaccia is known as a solid special teams coach, but the Chargers had three punts blocked in 2012.
