Cowboys make Joe Baker assistant secondary coach

The Cowboys announced the hiring of an assistant secondary coach, Joe Baker, who spent the previous three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has been an NFL coach for 16 years and is a former college teammate of Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett.

Baker will work under Jerome Henderson, who was hired last month to be the Cowboys’ new secondary coach, replacing Dave Campo.

Before coaching in Tampa Bay, Baker spent two seasons with the Denver Broncos, as a linebackers coach and an offensive assistant.

Baker has also been with the St. Louis Rams (in 2006), with the Green Bay Packers (2005), New Orleans Saints (2000 to ’04) and Jacksonville Jaguars, where he began his career in 1994.

 Baker was a wide receiver at Princeton from 1987 to 1990, catching passes from Garrett in 1987 and 1988, and helped Princeton win an Ivy League co-championship in 1989.

After coaching defensive backs at East Stroudsburg University in 1991, Baker spent one year as player personnel coordinator for the Birmingham Fire of the WLAF. He was an assistant at Samford in 1993. He also coached at the University of Wisconsin in 1999.

With the Jaguars, he began as the manager of football operations in the team’s first year, 1994. He became an assistant special teams coach the following year.

jR, I hope you aren't driving! If so pull over right away, we know you're drunk!

Signing Randy Moss could be a good thing, however I would not want to expose Randy Moss to Dez for and entire year, I am not certain it would work out for Cowboys. Dez already has some bad habits. Moss on the other hand could teach Dez that being a maligned receiver could be be a career killer. If that were the case Moss could be a positive influence Dez needs.

No, I think I should bring Quincy Carter back. He is my guy.
