IRVING (AP) – The Dallas Cowboys have hired Joe Baker as an assistant secondary coach.

Baker has been an NFL assistant coach for four teams over 16 seasons. He spent the past three seasons in Tampa Bay.

The Cowboys, who announced Baker’s hiring Monday, last month hired Jerome Henderson from Cleveland to be their new secondary coach.

Baker had also worked with St. Louis, New Orleans and Jacksonville.

Baker was a college receiver at Princeton, including two seasons (1987-88) when Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was the quarterback there.
