According to sources, the Cowboys have denied the Oakland Raiders permission to speak with special teams coach Joe DeCamillis about a position on their staff.
DeCamillis is still under contract with the Cowboys and now appears will be back in Dallas for a fourth season.
Raiders coach Dennis Allen had hoped to interview and possibly added DeCamillis to his staff with the title of assistant head coach. Allen and DeCamillis are close friends and had been on the same staff together in Atlanta.
But it would have been considered a lateral move and per NFL rules, teams only have to let coaches interview with other clubs for a head coaching position.
DeCamillis had hoped to get in the mix for the head coaching job in Jacksonville but that opportunity never came.
