Patriots strength and conditioning coach Mike Woicik is expected to return to the Cowboys in the same position he held in Dallas from 1990-96. Joe Juraszek, who has been the Cowboys’ strength and conditioning coach the past 14 seasons, missed the last half of the 2010 season on a medical leave of absence.
Woickik, whose contract with the Patriots expired after the 2010 season, arrived in Dallas with Jimmy Johnson. He was with the Cowboys for three Super Bowls and with the Patriots for three more.
The Cowboys are closing in on the completion of their staff. They made the hiring of defensive line coach Brian Baker official Wednesday.
