In the midst of largely quiet NFL free agency, the Cowboys change their coaching staff.



This free agency, the Dallas Cowboys haven’t exactly made the news. Indeed, a number of changes have already been implemented, but much work remains in the wake of the players’ wholesale departure from the team. There has been a promotion within the coaching staff while the supporters wait for more decisions to come from the front office.

Coach of defensive backs Al Harris anticipates becoming promoted to assistant head coach, according to Todd Brock of Cowboys Wire. After Mike McCarthy became head coach in 2020, Harris became a member of his staff. Both have led the Cowboys to the playoffs three times in the previous four seasons and are currently in their fifth season with the franchise.Before joining the Cowboys, Harris was a defensive back in the NFL and has teaching experience both in the pros and in college. He has played for Florida Atlantic University, the Miami Dolphins, and the Kansas City Chiefs.

Harris was selected to the Pro Bowl twice as a player, in 2007 and 2008, while playing for the Green Bay Packers. The defensive back accumulated 470 combined tackles (424 solo and 46 assisted) over his 14-year career. He also recorded 140 passes defended, 21 interceptions, 407 interception yards, and 3 pick sixes during the regular season.

Harris, who qualified for the playoffs six times overall, finished with 35 total tackles (32 solo), 10 passes defended, and a touchdown return in 12 postseason contests.

It appears like Al Harris is doing well on his own. But the situation with America’s Team is different. Considering the events of the past few days, several faces from last year will not be present in September. As previously noted, there was a widespread exodus of Cowboys players, including Tyron Smith, Tony Pollard, and Tyler Biadasz. Two more players have been released while seven free agents have been lost to the market overall.

In exchange, the team acquired Eric Kendricks in free agency and re-signed three FAs. The Cowboys still have a lot of things to work out, so the Dallas fan base will have to wait and see what they have planned.
