Sherman Out as Cowboys WR Coach
Ray Sherman is out as wide receiver's coach of the Dallas Cowboys after four seasons. Sherman was told by new Cowboys coach Jason Garrett on Friday the club will allow his contract to expire.
This came just a week after Sherman was interviewed for the Head coaching position for Dallas, which was vacant after Wade Phillips was fired during the season. Sherman, along with Miami secondary coach Todd Bowles, interviewed last week for the position, but it seemed that it was Garrett’s job all along. Many people believe the interview was only given to Sherman and Bowles to make sure the Cowboys made good on the “Rooney Rule” in the NFL. The “Rooney Rule,” created in 2003, requires minority candidates be considered for significant openings in an organization.
Even though Sherman is out of a job with the Cowboys, he will find work quick. Sherman has a resume that would make any organization, in need of an assistant coach, jump through hoops to land him. Ray has been with 9 different NFL teams over the past 20 plus years to go along with over 10 years of coaching on the college level. Sherman has had 3 different stints as offensive coordinator and has coached every position on offense except offensive line. Should Sherman want to continue coaching in the NFL it won’t take long as many NFL teams will be in need experienced help.
As of right now there is no official replacement for Sherman on the staff for the Cowboys but word is that current Tennessee Volunteer wide receiver’s Coach Charlie Baggett is a candidate. Baggett was a wide receiver’s coach for the Miami Dolphins and was on staff with Garrett from 2005-2006.
