Cowboys Hire Former Giants TE Coach Mike Pope
IRVING, Texas (AP) – The Dallas Cowboys have hired longtime New York Giants assistant Mike Pope to replace Wes Phillips as tight ends coach.
Pope was fired last week by the Giants, where he spent most of his 31 seasons as an NFL assistant coach. He was New York’s tight ends coach the past 14 years and from 1984-91.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett was a backup quarterback with the Giants when Pope rejoined the coaching staff in 2000.
Phillips is the new tight ends coach for Washington after spending this past season in that role with the Cowboys. Phillips, the son of former Cowboys coach Wade Phillips, had been on the Dallas staff since 2007.
