The Cowboys lost another staffer Saturday, but it wasn’t Jason Garrett.
Assistant director of pro scouting Brian Gaine, in his third season with the Cowboys, left the team to join the Miami Dolphins’ scouting department.
Gaine followed former Cowboys vice president of college and pro scouting Jeff Ireland, who became the Dolphins’ general manager on Wednesday.
When Cowboys owner Jerry Jones allowed Bill Parcells, the Dolphins new vice president of football operations, to hire Ireland, he did so with the understanding that the Dolphins might come after Tony Sparano, but Jones expected his scouting department to remain intact.
He even said the presence of Gaine and assistant director of college scouting Tom Ciskowski would allow the team to move on without Ireland. But that changed when Gaine asked to join Parcells and Ireland in Miami.
According to a source, a frustrated Jones granted Gaine his wish Friday.
