Cowboys take recent Malzahn Auburn hire

Posted:

IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have hired Rich Bisaccia as special teams coach three weeks after he joined the Auburn staff in a similar capacity.

New Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said Friday that Bisaccia had "an offer that he felt he could not turn down" after the Tigers hired him to coach running backs and special teams on Jan. 3. The Cowboys reported their hiring on the team's website.

Bisaccia was special teams coach at Tampa Bay from 2002-10 and worked alongside new Dallas defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin and defensive line coach Rod Marinelli.

Bisaccia spent the past two seasons as special teams coach in San Diego. He replaces Joe DeCamillis, who went to Chicago as assistant head coach in charge of special teams.
