The deal for New England strength and conditioning coach Mike Woicik to return to Dallas is done, according to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com.

Woicik was one of Bill Belichick's first hires when he took over the Patriots in 2000. His contract expired after the 2010 season and the sides had not come to an agreement for Woicik to remain in New England.

This will be Woicik's second stint with the Cowboys; he was their S&C coach from 1990-1996, winning three Super Bowl rings before departing after a dispute with Barry Switzer. He spent the next three years with New Orleans before coming to the Pats.

Woicik is the only player or coach with six Super Bowl rings.

A league source says the Pats' current assistant S&C coach, Harold Nash, will be elevated to take Woicik's place.
