Pacman Jones calls coaching in Dallas 'horrible'

The embattled former Cowboy had choice words for his former coaches in Dallas.


With his Cincinnati Bengals slated to play host to the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday at Paul Brown Stadium, the player formerly known as "Pac-Man" Jones had some choice words for himself and his coaches during his short tenure in Dallas.

"I was horrible in Dallas and the coaching was horrible, too. From the top down," Jones said, according to the Bengals' official website.

After amassing a laundry list of off-field legal troubles and controversy early in his career, the cornerback was given a shot a redemption in 2008 by Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. "Pac-Man" spent just nine games in a Cowboys uniform, playing under former head coach and defensive coordinator Wade Phillips and defensive backs coach Dave Campo, and saw his short stay with the team come to an end after continuing his disturbing pattern of behavior and getting tangled up in several off-field controversies.

Jones has rebounded as a member of the Bengals, and told that he'll be playing with a "double chip" on his shoulder on Sunday.

Kickoff is slated for noon CT and the game will be televised on FOX.
