Tom Pelissero reports that the Cowboys are expected to hire Rams ST coordinator John Fassel to the same position on recently hired HC Mike McCarthy‘s staff.
Earlier today, Todd Archer reported that McCarthy was interested in bringing on Fassel from Los Angeles, so it appears a move has quickly developed.
Fassel, 45, began his NFL coaching career with the Ravens as an assistant special teams coach back in 2005. He spent four years with the Raiders before joining the Rams in 2012 and has worked as their special teams coordinator before being promoted to head coach after they fired Jeff Fisher.
Fassel returned to being the Rams’ special teams coordinator the following year.
Football Outsiders have the Rams’ special teams unit ranked No. 23 overall in 2019.
