Pokes Hire Herring

By  | 

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have hired Reggie
Herring as linebackers coach. It comes just over one month after
the former Arkansas interim coach was named defensive coordinator
at Texas A&M.
Herring filled the last of the positions that opened in Dallas
after Tony Sparano became the Dolphins new coach and took three
other Cowboys assistants with him to Miami.
The 48-year-old Herring coached Arkansas in the Cotton Bowl
after the Razorbacks fired Houston Nutt. Three days after January
1st, Texas A&M head coach Mike Sherman hired Herring as his
defensive coordinator.
Herring had been the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach
at Arkansas for the past three seasons. He was the Houston Texans
linebackers coach from 2002-03.
