The Cowboys defense will be different under their new defensive coordinator, but what changes should we expect in 2024?
The Dallas Cowboys have chosen Mike Zimmer as their new defensive coordinator. It’s not easy to process how to feel about this because there is so much that is unknown. Even with some recent struggles from Dan Quinn’s group, it’s difficult to know if undergoing a defensive change will be better, worse, or more of the same.
Whether we wanted it or not, change happened. And looking at all the options the team had, the Cowboys appear to have made the right choice. Hiring a seasoned veteran coach with an impressive track record like Zimmer seems like the best decision they could’ve made. Not only does he have a history with the Joneses since he was with the Cowboys staff from 1994 to 2006, but his résumé only got better after he left.
