Cowboys to hire ex Browns assistant Gary Brown as RBs coach

The Cowboys have completed their coaching staff with the hiring of a running backs coach. Dallas has hired Gary Brown, according to a source.

Brown has spent the past four seasons in Cleveland. Browns running back Trent Richardson was the league's 18th-ranked rusher and third among rookies, with 950 yards. Richardson also scored 11 touchdowns. Peyton Hillis was Brown's only 1,000-yard rusher in four seasons, as Hillis gained 1,177 yards in 2010.

Brown replaces Skip Peete, who was not retained after six seasons in Dallas. Peete now is the Bears running backs coach.

Brown played eight seasons in the NFL after being an eighth-round pick of the Houston Oilers in 1991. He rushed for 4,300 yards and 21 touchdowns on 1,023 carries. He started coaching immediately after his playing career ended, starting at Williamsport (Pa.) Area High School in 2000. His first college job was at Lycoming College. He also coached at Susquehanna University and Rutgers before joining the Browns.

Jerry is almost there. He's getting pretty close to replacing every coach on his staff from this past season except Garrett..Callahan..and Wade Wilson. I predicted this would happen and Jerry is almost there. You replace 85% of the coaching staff..yet the head coach remains. Only Jerry would do something as asinine as this.
