A year after coaching in the Pro Bowl, Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and his staff could be in line to coach in the Senior Bowl.

That’s how far the Cowboys have fallen, as the Senior Bowl is usually coached by the two NFL teams with the worst record if their staff’s are intact.

The Cowboys (4-10) have the fifth-worst record in the league, but could get in the hunt for the top two spots with losses in their final two games.

The Tennessee Titans (3-11) and Cleveland Browns (3-11) have the two worst records, but both could be looking for new coaches in the off-season, opening it up for the Cowboys, San Diego Chargers (4-10) and Baltimore Ravens (4-10).

The Cowboys are currently drafting behind the Chargers and Ravens, who are three and four, respectively.

Garrett said he would be open to the opportunity if it was presented to them.

The Senior Bowl is January 30 in Mobile, Ala.

"It’s certainly a good opportunity to get to know the players and we’ll evaluate that as it gets closer," Garrett said.

Garrett and the Cowboys coached the Pro Bowl last year after going 12-4 and losing in the NFC Divisional playoffs to the Green Bay Packers.

Then they got a chance to look at the best of the NFL.

The Senior Bowl gives the Cowboys a chance to scout some of the top college prospects for the 2016 NFL Draft.
