Cowboys demote coordinator Kiffin
The Dallas Cowboys demoted Monte Kiffin, who was the team’s defensive coordinator this past season, and they promoted Rod Marinelli to defensive coordinator on Tuesday.
Kiffin was given a new title — assistant head coach/defense.
The Cowboys switched from the 3-4 to the 4-3 scheme when Kiffin was hired last year, but they finished last in the NFL in defense. The Cowboys allowed the most yards in franchise history and the second-most points in franchise history.
