Cowboys Hire Former Player To Coaching Staff
The Cowboys hired a former player to the coaching staff this week.
Rob Davis, a retired NFL player and Green Bay Packers director of Player development, has reportedly been brought on as an assistant head coach.
Davis served as Green Bay’s Director of Player Development for an 11-year stretch between 2006 and 2017.
Before that, he enjoyed a 12-year playing career with the Chicago Bears and Packers.
Much as has been the case with most of Mike McCarthy’s recent hires, he and Davis enjoy a relationship that dates back to the pair’s Green Bay days.
“I think it goes to the personality type that you’re looking for,” McCarthy said recently.
“I think it’s important to have individuals that are the same guys every day. This is going to shock you, but I’m not expecting it to be smooth sailing all the way through.
“We just have to make sure we have the right people that handle those adversity times because at the end of the day, everything we do is about the locker room.”
McCarthy has done a complete overhaul of Dallas’ coaching staff at this point. Out are the Jason Garrett disciples, and in are all his old friends from the Packers.
Will that ultimately prove to be a winning recipe for the Cowboys? Time will tell.
