Now, that we are into the off-season, let's periodically attend to some of the assignments that you the reader have suggested. I can't promise that I can do these all of the time, but let's grab one every now and then and maybe some of you will want to print and save these for your own personal reference:
Today's Email Query:
With Rob Ryan taking the Defensive Coordinator job, could you run down the chronology of the DC job here going back to Jimmy?
Not a bad idea, Doug. Let me do you one better and make a chart here of Head Coach, Offensive Coordinator, and Defensive Coordinator going back to the day Jerry Jones bought the team before the 1989 season.
|Year Record||Head Coach||Offensive Coordinator||Defensive Coordinator|
A couple thoughts from me from this project.
How did I totally forget about Jack Reilly? Mike Zimmer was the most stable in either spot, it appears - and remember, he stayed through the transition from 4-3 to 3-4 under Bill Parcells. Also, there were a few guys who had the title on their door, but never coordinated anything it seems (Maurice Carthon). And when the Cowboys are good, the coordinator is a great way to get a HC job elsewhere with Dave Wannstedt, Norv Turner, Sean Payton, and Tony Sparano.
Interesting timeline. Thanks, Doug.
