The Dallas Cowboys met with former Michigan State head coach Bobby Williams for their vacancy at wide receivers coach Tuesday, according to Todd Archer of ESPNDallas.com. Williams and Jason Garrett coached together with the Miami Dolphins for two seasons before Williams followed Nick Saban to Alabama to serve as tight ends/special teams coordinator.

Williams has been a respected coach at the college and pro levels. His biggest assignment will be to continue the development of wide receiver Dez Bryant. Garrett did not renew Ray Sherman's contract as wide receivers coach. Sherman certainly did a nice job working with Miles Austin, Terrell Owens and Bryant, but he was probably viewed as too sympathetic to his players at times.

I don't think Garrett wants a coach who nurtures his players. He believes that young receivers such as Bryant and Kevin Ogletree need a kick in the pants, and that's what he would expect Williams to do.
