All preseason, we heard various Cleveland Browns defensive backs heaping praise on their position coach Jerome Henderson. Today, the Dallas Morning News reports that Henderson could be en route to the Dallas Cowboys to join his former boss Rob Ryan, heading up the defensive backfield for Jerry Jones’ coaching staff.
“Right now nothing has transpired between me and the Cowboys,” said Henderson. “We are in discussions but nothing has happened,” Henderson said. “I don’t want to speak out of turn.”
Henderson was one of the five coaches whom Pat Shurmur retained from the Eric Mangini regime and is thought very highly of throughout the league. Since his arrival, the Browns have gone from having the 29th-ranked pass defense in 2009 to ranking second-overall in 2011.
Henderson would replace Dave Campo who was recently told that his contract with the Cowboys would not be renewed.
