Dallas Cowboys slash coaching staff after NFC Divisional round loss to 49ers

Dallas Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy announced the team would not be renewing the contracts for six coaches on staff.

ARLINGTON, Texas — The Dallas Cowboys coaching staff will look significantly different next season. 

Head coach Mike McCarthy announced six coaches would not be returning with the Cowboys: Rob Davis (Assistant Head Coach), George Edwards (Senior Defensive Assistant), Leon Lett (Assistant Defensive Line) Skip Peete (Running Backs), Joe Philbin (Offensive Line),  Kyle Valero (Quality Control Analytics). 

“We thank these men for their hard work, dedication and contributions to the Cowboys. Each of them represented our team and organization at a high, professional level with class and commitment to making our team better,” said McCarthy. “These were difficult decisions to make because of the great respect I have for each of them as a coach and person of character, combined with the experiences we’ve all gone through together. This is the hardest part of the business and we wish them nothing but the best.”

There is a possibility Dallas could be without its offensive and defensive coordinators, as well. Kellen Moore and Dan Quinn have both been hot names within the head coaching carousel.

Quinn has interviewed with the Colts, Cardinals and Broncos for their head coaching positions. Moore has interviewed with the Panthers head coaching job.

The coaching staff changes come after Dallas lost to San Francisco in the NFC Divisional Round, 19-12.
