It’s uncertain what the Cowboys’ receivers depth chart will look like heading into next season, but the team has some clarity when it comes to the coaching staff. ESPN’s Todd Archer reports that Dallas has hired Adam Henry as their new wide receivers coach.
Henry has been coaching since 1997. He joined the Raiders as an offensive quality control coach in 2007, and he later coached Oakland’s tight ends. Since 2012, Henry has solely served as a wide receivers coach during his stints with LSU, the 49ers, the Giants, and the Browns. He had spent the past two seasons in Cleveland.
In Dallas, he’ll be replacing Sanjay Lal on Mike McCarthy‘s revamped coaching staff. Archer notes that the newly-hired head coach now has a lead coach at every position.
There’s some question marks when it comes to the Cowboys receivers corps next season. While impending free agent Amari Cooper is predictably stealing the headlines (along with quarterback Dak Prescott), veterans Randall Cobb and Tavon Austin are also set to hit the market. That leaves Michael Gallup as the one certainty heading into the offseason.
