The Dallas Cowboys fired special teams coach Bruce Read on Wednesday after two seasons with the organization.
Sources tell ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the Cowboys could hire Joe DeCamillis, who has been an NFL special teams coach for 16 seasons, the past two with the Jaguars.
The move did not come as a surprise since Read's special teams units struggled in consecutive seasons. A blocked punt in overtime led to the Cowboys' second loss of the season and landed Pro Bowl punter Mat McBriar on injured reserve.
This isn't the first time Cowboys coach Wade Phillips has sent a special teams coach packing. In the aftermath of The Music City Miracle loss, Phillips -- then coach of the Buffalo Bills -- fired Bruce DeHaven, one of the most respected special teams coaches in the league. Phillips' firing occurred a year later.
