Hudson Houck preferred not to comment about possibly returning to the team he was the offensive line coach for in the '90s. He is expected to be named the team's next offensive line coach, probably in the next couple of days.
The only thing he'd say was, "There are some things in the works."
Take that to mean whatever you want, but one NFL source said that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones contacted Houck shortly after it was learned that Tony Sparano would leave to accept the head coaching position with the Dolphins.
Houck also said he thought something would be out in the next couple of days, but did not comment specifically about the Cowboys.
Houck was the Cowboys offensive line coach from 1993 to '01.
Cowboys coach Wade Phillips said he thought something would be done about this position quickly.
