Al Golden in running for job with Cowboys

MOBILE, Ala. -- The Dallas Cowboys will interview former Miami Hurricanes coach Al Golden for a spot on Jason Garrett's coaching staff Wednesday.

Golden will meet with Garrett in Mobile, Alabama, where the Cowboys are coaching the North team in the Senior Bowl. The Cowboys have a vacancy at secondary coach after the departure of Jerome Henderson to the Atlanta Falcons.

Golden went 32-25 with Miami but was fired in October of last season.

He and Garrett never have worked together but have developed a relationship over the years. Golden visited with Garrett and the Cowboys' staff last offseason.

A tight end at Penn State, Golden coached linebackers at Boston College and Penn State and was the defensive coordinator at Virginia. He was the head coach at Temple from 2006 to '10.

"He's somebody that we'll talk to," Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said. "I don't know if he's going to join (the staff), but we're going to be interviewing him. There will be several names (that) start to pop up in terms of possible additions to our staff after we lost Jerome."

Safeties coach Joe Baker and defensive ends coach Ben Bloom are splitting the secondary duties this week at the Senior Bowl. Assistant offensive line coach Steve Loney is working with the tight ends with Mike Pope not in attendance because of a personal matter.
