Glazer: DL Coach Paul Pasqualoni Promoted To Cowboys Defensive Coordinator Role

Jay Glazer has news on Wade Phillips’ replacement as defensive coordinator. It will be former Syracuse coach Paul Pasqualoni. Pasqualoni had been the defensive line coach for Dallas and was regarded as a prime candidate to take the head coaching position.

Pasqualoni is regarded as a tough coach, who does not let mistakes slide. That would be a skill many Cowboys fans will be happy to see. He joined Bill Parcells in Dallas in 2005 before leaving for Miami in 2008. His return to Dallas this season appeared to be ill-timed, until this promotion.

The Cowboys have not said whether Jason Garrett will continue in his role as offensive coordinator. That issue will likely be addressed in the team’s 4:00 press conference.
