Capacity.
Edwards, the former coordinator of the Vikings, came here a year ago not as Mike Nolan’s staff, but as McCarty hired. He was on the same Dolphins staff with Quinn at one point. And he once coached linebackers for the Cowboys.
Wednesday AM: White J.R. Come forward The Cowboys have their double-sinking aspirations: Head coach Mike McCarthy has named Joe Whitt Jr. as his “defensive pass game coordinator / secondary coach”. ” Whitney was allowed out of his contract in Atlanta (which could happen anyway. Whoever the Falcons keep as their next coach) and gets a two-year contract here.
Witt spent a decade on McCarthy’s Packers staff and will likely be assisted by former Packers player Al Harris, who joined Dallas last year as DB coach. With the advent of wit, Moe Liquist is likely to depart.
Dallas is also working to add new D-line coaches. We have reported on Tosh Lupoi and Travis Jones. (See below.) Now add Giff Smith for mixing.

Campbell is currently the assistant head coach for the New Orleans Saints and in 2015 was the interim head coach of the Miami Dolphins. Campbell, 44, is a native of Clifton, Texas and is a product of Texas A&M and will bring an old-school approach to the Lions staff.

Monday morning: Queen staff? Dan Quinn’s second interview (this one-on-one) is coming up on Monday, and one of the topics will be the proposed composition of his staff.
Quinn Plus Joe Whit Jr. (as a top defensive assistant, with the title “Passing-Game Coordinator” or something like that) is the idea of many inside The Star. Whit will handle the secondary responsibility, which was a failure under McCarthy’s hands. Employees with pictures in 2019.
Potential hurdle: What if Rahim Morris gets a head-coaching job in Atlanta? In that event, Witt will be able to remain there as his coordinator. … which Jason Simmons could get a “pass-coordinator / secondary” job.
In addition, D-Line coaches have vacancies in Dallas. Owners will want to retain Leon Lett in a supporting role. An interesting name if it is available through a change in Atlanta is Tosh Lupoi, Quinn’s 2019 defensive line coach and run-game coordinator. On his resume is a five-season period in Alabama. Another name: Travis Jones, another Atlanta staff member who was also back at LSU with Nick Soap.
Certainly, Dallas-3-defense has turned to people who have experience as “teachers” to return to defense and run secondary.
We will note that when Dallas Quinn appears to be closing in, a formal interview of senior employee George Edwards has arrived. Details here.
Also: When McCarthy chooses to have a certain Scott McCarley as linebackers coach, there will be a saying in the next office fee – and the availability of Sean Lee as a retired player looking to start a coaching career may also come up.

Simmons and McCarthy, according to one guess, worked together in Green Bay.
Sunday Morning: Package Deal? A year ago, Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike Marcarti was going to hire Joe Whitt as his defensive coordinator, while the job ended with another McCarthy friend, now-expelled Mike Nolan.
If Whit Jr. is back in the mix, interview for the vacancy this week. And one of the most compelling things about him – serving as a passing-game coordinator on the Atlanta team last year, who finished last in the NFL in pass defense – is what can come with it.
Sources suggest to CowboysI.com that while McCarthy has no special relationship with former Falcons head coach Dan Quinn, Witt clearly does – as Quinn is the person who hired Whit in Atlanta. In addition, the idea that McCarthy could find his way with Whit Hire (whose head coach is pushing), if as a defensive line coach, Quinn could also come on the star, could be more fun.

In the event of an AdWords hire, it may push for some staff changes, as if most were brought in from outside.
But what if McCarthy could lure Wit and Quinn (who is rightly set higher than his sights positions coach)? Jonesis could be impressive, leaving McCarthy in place of the rest of the defensive staff.
