|CHRIS HENRY Four arrests as Bengal|
The Dallas Cowboys added Jason Garrett to their coaching staff last night, and said he would remain a candidate to replace retired head coach Bill Parcells.
Garrett, the backup to Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman in Dallas from 1993-99, was quarterbacks coach in Miami the last two seasons -- his only coaching experience. Garrett also had been in line to become the Dolphins' offensive coordinator for new coach Cam Cameron.
The Cowboys said Garrett's responsibilities and title won't be determined until the head coaching search is complete. The most likely scenario is that Garrett will become the offensive coordinator if he's not the head coach.
"The nature and timing of this hire is unique in that we were dealing with a limited window of time in which to talk to Jason about returning to Dallas," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a statement.
San Diego defensive coordinator Wade Phillips, a former head coach at Denver and Buffalo who also had interim stints in New Orleans and Atlanta, is scheduled to interview today for the head coaching vacancy. The Cowboys also plan to talk to San Francisco offensive coordinator Norv Turner, a former head coach, and New Orleans defensive coordinator Gary Gibbs. Both are former Dallas assistants.
"You brought shame with this on yourself," Kenton County (Ky.) District Judge Greg Grothaus told Henry. "You embarrassed a lot of people."
Grothaus sentenced Henry to 90 days in jail. He suspended all but two days, and ordered Henry to begin serving those two days immediately.
