    Cowboys Hire Joe Whitt Jr. as DB Coach, Passing Game Coordinator

    The are continuing to retool their . After hiring Dan Quinn to be on Monday, they've now brought in a member of his 2020 Falcons staff in Joe Whitt Jr. to coach the and be the defensive .

    Whitt was already on the Cowboys' radar thanks to a long with in Green Bay. He also interviewed for Dallas' defensive coordinator vacancy last weekend but the job ended up going to Quinn.

    Before brief stops in Atlanta and Cleveland the last two years, Whitt was with the Packers from 2008-2018 in varying roles. He primarily served as the cornerbacks coach from 2009-2017 and was part of the Champion staff in 2010.

    There are legitimate concerns about hiring anyone from the Falcons after they finished 2020 as the worst passing in the NFL and 29th overall. But at least Whitt was only there for one pandemic-altered season and with the franchise clearly in need of a rebuild.

    While nothing is confirmed yet, Whitt's arrival almost certainly means bad news for one of the Cowboys' current secondary coaches. They added Maurice Linguist and in 2020 as part of Mike Nolan's defensive staff.

    Harris was still playing for the Packers from 2008-2010 in the early days of Whitt's tenure there. That connection could make Harris a favorite to be kept on in some capacity.

    WELL LOOKS LIKE THE COWBOYS WANT TO BRING IN THE STELLAR DEFENSE OF THE ATLANTA FALCONS

    what a crap shoot

    I’ll say this. It doesn’t matter who you bring in to coach if you don’t give them talented players to coach. The Falcons had no talent in their secondary compared to ours which is saying something
