Former assistants' migration to Dallas continues
Maxie was with the Dolphins only one season. He was fired along with practically every other coach on Cam Cameron's staff following the 2007 season. Maxie coached in Atlanta prior to coming to Miami.
The Cowboys already hired former Dolphins offensive line coach Hudson Houck and recently were talking to former Dolphins defensive coordinator Dom Capers.
Todd Archer and Calvin Watkins, of the Dallas Morning News, reported this morning that Capers is not going to end up in Dallas when it is all said and done.
So for the time being, Capers and his hefty salary of approximately $2.2 million per year will remain on the Dolphins' books.
Interesting that when he was fired as Houston's head coach, Capers held out hope he could land a head coach job elsewhere. He didn't. Now that he was coordinator of a defense that went from No. 4 in the NFL to No. 23 overall and No. 30 in points allowed, he is still trying to land an defensive coordinator role.
The Cowboys were apparently unwilling to displace Brian Stewart from the defensive coordinator job in Dallas.
