Recent Auburn hire headed to Cowboys instead

IRVING, Texas (AP) — The Dallas Cowboys have hired Rich Bisaccia as special teams coach three weeks after he joined the Auburn staff in a similar capacity.

New Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said Friday that Bisaccia had "an offer that he felt he could not turn down" after the Tigers hired him to coach running backs and special teams on Jan. 3. The Cowboys reported their hiring on the team's website.

Bisaccia was special teams coach at Tampa Bay from 2002-10 and worked alongside new Dallas defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and defensive line coach Rod Marinelli.

Bisaccia spent the past two seasons as special teams coach in San Diego. He replaces Joe DeCamillis, who went to Chicago as assistant head coach in charge of special teams.

It may be relevant to us if Bisaccia is recruiting some of the guys we are in on, such as Greene, Lawson, etc. Not sure if he is but isn't he is known as a good recruiter?

he's expressed interest many times in coming to UT, but for some reason we've never reached out to him. Never heard about him saying anything about Auburn, and looks pretty obvious now that isn't where he wanted to be.

This is just one more thing that "Jerry" has done to prove he should be FIRED as owner of the once proud Cowboys. Mone Kiffin, for the love of all thats silver and blue. Jerry please get out of the way. One playoff win since the last super bowl victory. Its insanity.

Ironic that Monte Kiffin and Derek Dooley will be on same coaching staff.
