The New York Giants coaching staff is starting to have a Cowboys feel to it with Marc Colombo hired as offensive line coach after Jason Garrett was hired as offensive coordinator. Former receivers coach Derek Dooley, who was at Missouri last year, interviewed for the tight ends job and Jerome Henderson is the defensive backs coach.

Speaking to ESPN's Dianna Russini after Wednesday's Pro Bowl practice, Ezekiel Elliott said he has talked with Mike McCarthy since the coach's hiring. “I got an opportunity to talk to him one time, and it was a nice visit a couple weeks ago. Wasn't very long, but kinda getting to know each other a bit, talking a little ball, what we thought we needed to do going into next year.” His hope? “Just run the football,” he said. “We know how we're built. I don't think much needs to be said.”

Why isn't Mike McCarthy at the Senior Bowl with his new staff? Too much work to do and, “I just think the Senior Bowl has changed,” he said. “I know as a young coach — particularly coaching quarterbacks, for an offensive coordinator — when you were able to get on the practice field and stand right next to those guys, I thought the evaluation was significant. To be that close and interact on that level was a lot different than sitting up in the stands.”

George Edwards, who spent the last six years as the Minnesota Vikings coordinator, is interviewing with the Cowboys regarding a spot on the defensive staff, according to a source. Edwards was the Cowboys linebackers coach from 1998-2001. The Cowboys have filled their defensive position coach roles, but Mike McCarthy could look to add Edwards under an unspecified title.

Stories behind every Super Bowl ring

They're big and small. They've been lost while surfing in Hawaii and dancing at Studio 54. They've been found in taxis and hotel nightstands. Each ring, and its wearer, has a unique story to tell.

Garrett stays in NFC East, named OC of Giants

Jason Garrett is sticking in the NFC East, with the former Cowboys head coach reaching a deal Friday to take over the Giants' offense.

A look at the coaching staff Mike McCarthy has put together thus far since taking over the Cowboys: DC – Mike Nolan OC – Kellen Moore ST – John Fassel QB –Doug Nussmeier WR – Adam Henry OL – Joe Philbin Assistant OL – Jeff Brasko RB – Skip Peete TE – Lunda Wells DL – Jim Tomsula LB – Scott McCurley DB – Maurice Linguist, Al Harris Note: Leon Lett could return as assistant defensive line coach.

Adam Henry, who spent last season with the Cleveland Browns, is expected to be the Cowboys receivers coach, according to a source. Henry talked with the Cowboys this week about the opening to replace Sanjay Lal, who was under contract for two more years. Henry's addition means Mike McCarthy has a lead coach at every position. Leon Lett remains a possibility to return as the assistant defensive line coach.

Mike McCarthy said the Cowboys will remain in a 4-3 defensive scheme, but indicated there will be a lot of flexibility in what they do under defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, who has experience in multiple defenses. But it's not about the base defense. “We're a sub-defense because we'll play it 85 percent of the time,” McCarthy said.

My sense on Kellen Moore continuing as playcaller: Mike McCarthy will be a lot like Bill Parcells when he had Sean Payton and Tony Sparano calling plays. He will be in Moore's ear a lot during games and heavily involved in the game-planning process. Also, told this was not a Jerry Jones' edict. McCarthy admired the work done by Moore and believes that will be best for Dak Prescott's growth.

McCarthy lets Moore keep calling Cowboys' plays

New Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said he'd continue to have Kellen Moore call plays on offense because "I wanted to make sure we were able to capitalize on what has been established here."

Todd Archer ESPN Staff Writer 

Al Harris will join Mike McCarthy's staff as a defensive backs coach. Harris played for McCarthy in Green Bay and was an assistant in Kansas City from 2013-18. He had 21 interceptions in a 14-year career. The Cowboys will also have former Texas A&M cornerbacks coach Maurice Linguist as a defensive backs coach. No decision has been made yet on a receivers coach but Adam Henry, who was with Cleveland last year, is among the candidates.
