DALLAS (105.3 THE FAN) – Receivers coach Ray Sherman will not return to the Dallas Cowboys next season.  Sherman’s contract with the Cowboys is up and he released the following statement:

“My contract with the Dallas Cowboys is expiring at the end of the season,” Sherman said. “I appreciate the opportunity that the Cowboys have given me. I was able to coach a great group of receivers who now have a tremendous foundation, giving them the ability to continue to excel for years to come in the NFL.”

Sherman was considered a calming influence with new wide receiver Dez Bryant.  He interviewed for the had coaching position last week and said that he “Thought it went well,” during the three-hour visit with Jerry Jones.  He was reportedly informed of the decision on Friday, the day after Jason Garrett was introduced as head coach.
