Cowboys add Adam Kleffner to coaching staff
The Dallas Cowboys won’t be moving on from head coach Jason Garrett just yet, but there is reportedly a new face in Texas.
According to a recent report from Todd Archer of ESPN, the Cowboys will be hiring Adam Kleffner to serve as the team’s next assistant offensive line coach. Kleffner will now be making his way to the professional ranks of the NFL after a stint at the collegiate level with the Missouri Tigers of the SEC.
“The Cowboys have finalized their staff with the addition of Adam Kleffner as assistant offensive line coach,” writes Archer. “Kleffner joins the Cowboys from Missouri where he was a quality control coach focusing on the line and earned positive marks from offensive coordinator Derek Dooley, the former Cowboys’ receivers coach, and offensive line coach Brad Davis. Marc Colombo was named the offensive line coach midway through last season and Hudson Houck ended the year as a consultant. Colombo signed a new deal after the season. Steve Brown, who helps with running backs and is an offensive assistant, will return as will Andre Gurode and Phillip Tanner as defensive end special teams assistants respectively.”
The Cowboys notably returned to the postseason in 2018 while managing to capture an NFC East crown along the way.
However, Dallas was once again unable to reach the Super Bowl, with the aforementioned returning to the hot seat immediately after the 2018-19 campaign came to a close.
Nonetheless, Garrett will be back in Dallas for the 2019 season with more hopes of ending the team’s lengthy Super Bowl drought.
