The affection from the Philadelphia Eagles for members of the Dallas Cowboys coaching staff continues. According to an NFL source, Philadelphia is interested in interviewing Cowboys special teams coach John “Bones” Fassel.

Fassel came onto the Cowboys staff as a Mike McCarthy hire in 2020. His coaching experience began in 2005 as assistant special teams coach for the Baltimore Ravens. After three years in Baltimore, Fassel spent four years as the ST coordinator with the Oakland raiders. He was then hired by the St. Louis Rams, where he worked under head coach Jeff Fisher. Fassel was promoted to interim head coach after Fisher’s firing in 2016 (now as the Los Angeles Rams), but the following year resumed his role as special teams coordinator under the new coaching regime with Sean McVay.

Despite the club’s 6-10 record, Fassel’s special teams unit ranked No. 11 in the NFL. This was a massive jump from 2019 where the Cowboys ranked No. 31.

Fassel is highly respected amongst the Cowboys players and would be another hole to fill on the coaching staff if he is hired by Philadelphia.
