Dallas Cowboys wide receivers coach Ray Sherman will not be back with the team in 2011, Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com reports.
Watkins adds that it is not known if this was head coach Jason Garrett’s decision, or if Sherman, who interviewed for the head coaching position, asked to be let go.
Sherman just completed his 37th year in coaching, including 23 years as an NFL assistant. Sherman was with the Cowboys for four seasons, helped develop Miles Austin into a Pro Bowl-caliber wide receiver.
Prior to coaching in Dallas, Sherman coached wide receivers for the Tennessee Titans (2005-06) and Green Bay Packers (2000-04) after offensive coordinator stints with the Pittsburgh Steelers (1998) and Minnesota Vikings (1999), where he also coached the quarterbacks.
Sherman was Pete Carroll’s offensive coordinator with the New York Jets in 1994.
