Cowboys to get the full Monte in 2014

Posted: Updated:
Mobile, AL -

Monte Kiffin will return to the Dallas Cowboys in 2014 and is confident his defense will be much improved.  The Cowboys were the only team in the NFL to allow an average of more than 400 yards per game in 2013.  Kiffin, who made the Tampa 2 defense the envy of the NFL during his lengthy success coordinating defenses with Tampa Bay, will turn 74 next month.  

Kiffin points to a myriad of injuries with the Cowboys last season, from Shreveport's Mo Claiborne to several key players on the front line.  In an interview with KTBS 3 Sports, Kiffin said he coached with Pete Carroll for many years, and pointed to Carroll inheriting a defense in Seattle in 2010 which Kiffin says was 25th in the league at the time.  Kiffin says the Seahawks got better the second year and now "the rest is history."

As the Seahawks get ready to play in the Super Bowl, Kiffin is ready for the off-season work.  He and several Cowboys scouts and coaches were at the Senior Bowl this week as preparation for the draft has already begun.
