There appears to be a strong chance former Cowboys linebacker Dat Nguyen could be returning to the team as an assistant coach.
Nguyen, who retired last year after seven seasons with the Cowboys, might be hired as linebackers coach if Norv Turner is named head coach. Turner remains the leading candidate to replace the retired Bill Parcells.
Nguyen is also considering an opportunity to join Art Briles’ staff with the University of Houston Cougars as an inside linebackers coach.
