Wade Phillips said he was working with Jerry Jones on contingency plans for staff replacements before the season was over. Better get that candidates list out -- for possibly seven open jobs.
Here's the breakdown of the potential staff overhaul of who might be leaving: Offensive coodinator Jason Garrett, offensive line coach Tony Sparano, secondary coach Todd Bowles, linebackers coach Paul Pasqualoni, defensive line coach Kacy Rodgers, tight end coach John Garrett and special teams coach Bruce Read.
Garrett may be set to become the new Baltimore head coach and if so, his brother John would likely follow. Sparano is the expected to be the new Miami Dolphins head coach and Bowles might be his new defensive coordinator and Pasqualoni could also follow. Rodgers is not under contract and could leave and Read's special teams coverage units were dismal and may force Phillips to make a move.
Replacements? Offensive coordinator candidates could include quarterbacks coach Wade Wilson or receivers coach Ray Sherman. Sherman was the OC with the Jets, Vikings and Steelers. Norm Chow is also available after getting fired in Tennessee.
Offensive line coach? How about Hudson Houck, now unemployed after last coaching in Miami.
