Found January 24, 2013 on The Cardinal Connect:
PLAYERS: Jason Hatcher
TEAMS: Dallas Cowboys
Jason Hatcher’s recruitment has taken an interesting turn in the past few hours. The 6-foot-2 225-pound defensive end from Trinity High School here in Louisville verbally committed to USC in August. He decommitted from the school on Tuesday night, via his Twitter account. The decision to reopen his recruitment didn’t sit too well with the USC coaching staff.  Ed Orgeron, the defensive coordinator and recruiting coordinator for the Trojan program flew across the country this evening for an in-home visit with Hatcher. Hatcher was originally expected to take an official visit to Florida this weekend and Louisville next weekend before signing day on Feb. 6th. It was reported earlier tonight that Hatcher would not visit Florida and take his visit to Louisville this weekend instead of next. However, Steve Jones of the Courier-Journal is now reporting that Hatcher will not take any visits this weekend. His mother tells Jones that it is still possible for her son to visit Louisville next we...

Cowboys are strapped for cash, need help from Romo

Odds of the Dallas Cowboys signing that key 2013 NFL Free agent that will instantly help them make it over the hump are very slim. If fact, it might not even be possible. The Cowboys are $26 million over the salary cap and have to restructure and release several players in order to just break even. As of December, the Cowboys had $132 million tied up in cap space on 44 players and...

Changes for Garrett and a Tampa flavor

Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Bill Callahan is being elevated to the position of offensive playcaller for the 2013 season. And whether you view that as castrating strip of responsibilities of head coach Jason Garrett or the offering of some help for an overloaded young coach that frees Garrett to be a "walk-around'' head coach really depends on whether you are...

Should Cowboys players feel comfortable?

Jerry Jones promised this would be an "uncomfortable" off-season at Valley Ranch, and so far he has lived up to that pledge on the coaching side. Can he do the same with the players? The short answer: Not nearly as much. The salary cap makes roster churning difficult and complex. Also, a nearly across-the-board lack of quality depth also means nearly every roster decision...

NFL Rumors: What is going on with the Dallas Cowboys?

It seems as if Jerry Jones and the Dallas Cowboys are trying to put the band back together. Monte Kiffin, Rod Marinelli, Bill Callahan and now possibly, the Cowboys are reportedly negotiating a buyout of the contract for special teams coach Rich Bisaccia. What do these coaches all have in common? Jon Gruden. Coincidence? Perhaps. Bisaccia served as the Tampa Bay Buccaneers special...

Cops Guarded Tony Romo & His Wife Last Night At Texas H.S. Basketball Game

Tuesday is usually indoor soccer night for Tony Romo, so it came as a surprise to us to find him catching a high school basketball game in Anna, Texas, a town of 8,600 approximately 44 miles north of Dallas. That’s his wife, Candice, and the two cops who were guarding him from rabid high school students at the Nevada Community vs. Anna game. It looks like quite the romantic night...

Recent Auburn hire headed to Cowboys instead

The Dallas Cowboys have hired Rich Bisaccia as special teams coach three weeks after he joined the Auburn staff in a similar capacity. New Auburn coach Gus Malzahn said Friday that Bisaccia had ''an offer that he felt he could not turn down'' after the Tigers hired him to coach running backs and special teams on Jan. 3. The Cowboys reported their hiring on the team...

Jay Ratliff reportedly meets with Jerry Jones after DWI arrest

Jason Garrett Says Lack Of Turnovers Led To Rob Ryan Being Fired

Jerry Jones promised an off-season of change for the Dallas Cowboys, and changes have been made.  One major change was at defensive coordinator where Rob Ryan was fired and replaced by Monte Kiffin. After the firing, no excuse was actually given for the change until now.  Per ESPN Dallas, Jason Garrett says the change was made because the Cowboys didn’t produce enough turnovers...
