FRISCO, Texas – The Cowboys officially parted ways with another assistant coach this week when new Raiders head coach Jon Gruden announced Rich Bisaccia as his new special teams coordinator.
Could Gary Brown be the next to join Gruden’s staff in Oakland? According to NFL.com, Brown is interviewing for the Raiders’ running backs coach job, the same position he has held in Dallas since 2013.
Brown reportedly is one of several Cowboys assistants with an expiring contract.
Under Brown’s guidance, Ezekiel Elliott has rushed for 2,614 yards, the second-most by an NFL rusher in his first 25 games played. Rod Smith has also developed into a solid contributor, and Keith Smith has made a successful transition from linebacker to fullback.
Elsewhere on the offensive staff, team executive vice president Stephen Jones told 105.3 The Fan that Kellen Moore is a candidate to become quarterbacks coach, amid reports that Wade Wilson is not expected to return. Head coach Jason Garrett has said tight ends coach Steve Loney is expected to retire. And wide receivers coach Derek Dooley has accepted the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach job at the University of Missouri.
