The Cowboys made the hirings of their two new assistant coaches official Thursday. Bill Callahan and Jerome Henderson will join Jason Garrett's staff for the 2012 season.
Callahan will serve as the team’s offensive coordinator/offensive line coach, while Henderson is being added as a secondary coach, the Cowboys said in a release.
Callahan spent the past four seasons as the assistant head coach and offensive line coach with the New York Jets and has 14 years of NFL coaching experience. Henderson joins the Cowboys after three years with the Cleveland Browns in the same capacity, and while just in his sixth year of coaching, he played eight seasons (1991-98) in the NFL as a defensive back.
The Cowboys could lose secondary coach Brett Maxie. Maxie interviewed in Tennessee this week.
