Campo Possible To Return To Dallas As Secondary Coach

campo-pic.jpgThe Cowboys have asked for and received permission from Jacksonville to interview Dave Campo, the Jags secondary coach for the last three years, to replace Todd Bowles who recently left for Miami.  As we all know, Campo served as head coach of the Cowboys from 2000 to 2002 leading them to three consecutive 5-11 seasons.

 Jack Del Rio, coach of the Jags, has reportedly already promoted someone from within, Donnie Henderson, to take his place as Campo has family in the Dallas area and is said to be excited about the oppotunity to return here. 

Todd Grantham was hired Thursday to be the new defensive line coach replacing Kacy Rodgers, another coach departing for the warm climes of Florida.  Grantham served as Cleveland’s defensive coordinator for the last three years and is well-versed in the 3-4 defense. 

The Cowboys did manage to hold on to their strenth coach, Joe Juraszek, who’s contract expired this season also.  So it’s good that everyone isn’t jumping ship to Miami.

It’s good to know that Jerry Jones is fervently looking ahead to next season and getting his coaching staff back up to par, but I’m not so sure Campo would be the way we want look ahead at this point.    I’m sure there’s time to look around a little longer for someone who doesn’t have such a history with the team as Campo does. 

What do you think, guys?  Give me some feedback on this one, should we get Campo back as any kind of coach here in Dallas?

    Some guys are great teachers of the game and of certain positions. Others are great game planers and play callers. Campo, from what I understand, is more of the former. From what I’ve read he has always had a great ability to motivate players to play at their best while teaching them all of the fundamentals of their potions. All attributes that make for a great assistant coach who focuses on a particular position. His weakness is game planning and preparing an entire team to play. In other words he makes for a great assistant coach but has not really got the extra required attributes to be a good head coach, so if the boys bring him in strictly to teach the DBs they should be fine.

    Overall I’m a bigger fan of discovering new talent in the coaching world. Garrett is that. I really believe that he could be the next great mind in this game, like Belechick. I really hope that Jerry’s plan is to give this guy one more year of coordinator experience and then promote him to head coach. I just do not believe that Dallas will ever win a super bowl w/ Wade Phillips in charge. He’s just not innovative enough.
