Cowboys Give Special Teams Coach The Boot


The Dallas Cowboys have made their first significant personnel move since the season ending loss in Philly, and fired special teams coach Bruce Read.

Read becomes the first of what I hope will be many dismissals as we struggle to figure out what went wrong after a disappointing 9-7 season.

Special teams has been one of the biggest drags on the team in the two seasons in which Read was calling the shots.

They never settled on a kick or punt returner that could make any significant impact on the return game.

The kick return coverage was also abysmal and led to many costly gaffes that ultimately led to great field position for the opposition and contributed to a few losses.
