Leon Lett Will Help Coach Cowboys D-Line This Summer

Former Cowboys defensive lineman Leon Lett will return to the team this summer as part of the NFL Minority Coaching Fellowship Program.

Lett, who won three Super Bowl titles over 10 seasons with the Cowboys, will assist defensive line coach Brian Baker during training camp. “This is just a great opportunity to get some more experience and learn from some of the best coaches in the league,” Lett said Wednesday.

“When Coach (Jason) Garrett called me, I was excited. It’s been so long since I was a rookie and going to the Cowboys now makes it seem like I’m a rookie again. I’m just grateful to return.” Lett earned his degree in sociology in 2009 from UNLV where he was a volunteer assistant coach. Last year, Lett was the defensive line coach at UL Monroe, where he expects to return for the 2011 season.

“I just want to help the guys become better people and players,” Lett said. “My door is always open to them. I know I’ve made my mistakes in the past and learned from them, and I want to be a positive influence.”
