Multiple sources have confirmed that Dallas Cowboys secondary coach Jerome Henderson is interviewing today to become the defensive coordinator of the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Al Breer of the NFL Network first reported the interview.

Henderson is in the final year of his contract with the Cowboys and has been in talks about returning to the team. He has said that he would only considering leaving the Cowboys for a vertical move such as defensive coordinator or head coach.

Henderson interviewed earlier for the Cleveland Browns head coaching job. They eventually picked Hue Jackson.

Henderson, who has been with the Cowboys since 2012, directed a secondary that helped the defense finish fifth in the league against the pass in 2015.

His departure would be a blow to a secondary that might lose two of its top three cornerbacks. Brandon Carr could be a casualty of the salary cap. Morris Claiborne might need a fresh start and is expected to leave via free agency.
