Cowboys Hire Wilson and Read to Coaching Staff

The Dallas Cowboys have hired Wade Wilson to a second stint as quarterbacks coach and Oregon State’s Bruce Read as special teams coach.

Owner-GM Jerry Jones is especially happy to have Wilson back:

“We didn’t think the opportunity to have a chance to hire Wade would present itself,” said Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones. “Once we knew he was available, Wade [Phillips] acted quickly in getting him in here and getting him on board. “This is a hire that will directly facilitate the development of Tony Romo,” added Jones. “We think that this is the best scenario possible for Tony, as Wade [Wilson] and Jason [Garrett] have a combined 30 years of experience in playing the position of quarterback in the National Football League.”

The pretty much means naming a defensive coordinator is the only major step left in completing the staff.
