Hall of Fame offensive lineman Bruce Matthews signed a new contract with the Houston Texans on Monday. Matthews interviewed with the Cowboys last Monday. He had been a candidate for the Cowboys' newly created position of assistant offensive line coach, but Matthews, like Dan Campbell, chose not to leave. Campbell, who was at Valley Ranch twice to interview, became the Dolphins tight ends coach Sunday.
The Cowboys have been looking for a coach to help offensive line coach Hudson Houck, who is expected to add running game coordinator to his duties.
