The Dallas Cowboys are getting closer to completing their coaching staff.
The team will bring on Doug Nussmeier to coach tight ends, sources confirmed, replacing the vacancy left by Steve Loney (who retired). Nussmeier most recently served as the offensive coordinator at Florida from 2015-17.
It reunites Nussmeier with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Nussmeier was the Rams quarterbacks coach in 2006-07 when Linehan was the head coach.
The Cowboys have one vacancy left to fill on their staff after Doug Colman agreed to become the assistant special teams coach Wednesday, a source said. Colman was most recently with the Houston Texans. He also played five seasons in the NFL and was a member of the Tennessee Titans on their famed "Music City Miracle" in a 1999 playoff game.
Never miss a local story.
That position opened up when the Cowboys promoted Keith O'Quinn to special teams coordinator. O'Quinn replaces Rich Bisaccia, who left to join Jon Gruden's staff in Oakland.
The Cowboys are still looking for a defensive assistant as Turner West accepted a job at Austin Peay.
The Cowboys have made eight changes to Jason Garrett's staff so far. Along with the aforementioned moves, Kellen Moore has replaced Wade Wilson as quarterbacks coach; Sanjay Lal has replaced Derek Dooley as wide receivers coach; Paul Alexander has replaced Frank Pollack as offensive line coach; Ben Bloom has replaced Matt Eberflus as linebackers coach; and Kris Rishard has replaced Joe Baker as secondary coach.
