Former Cowboys WR Coach Ray Sherman To Join Jeff Fisher's Coaching Staff

Ray Sherman used to coach the Dallas Cowboys wide receivers for four seasons from 2007 to 2010 and was even a candidate to possibly become the team’s new head coach just last season. Now he’s going back to a familiar position under Jeff Fisher as the new coach of the St. Louis Rams rounds out his staff of assistants.

After the job was given to Jason Garrett, the Cowboys allowed Sherman’s contract to expire and he didn’t coach in the NFL last season. At the time, he issued a statement that read, “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.”

In addition, Stump Mitchell is rumored to be the next running backs coach for the team. Both he and Sherman will serve under new offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.
