Lett previously served as defensive tackle coach at the University of Louisiana at Monroe. The Cowboys brought in Lett last summer as part of the league's Minority Coaching Fellowship Program. Lett assisted defensive line coach Brian Baker during training camp.

Lett was a two-time Pro Bowl selection in his playing career with the Cowboys.
