Mike Pope joins Dallas Cowboys' coaching staff

Mike Pope - Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Pope was recently let go by the Giants.

When the New York Giants let him go last week, word was that veteran tight ends coach Mike Pope wanted to continue his career rather than follow the lead of ex-Giants' offensive coordinator Kevin Gilbride and retire. Pope has gotten his wish as he will be joining the staff of the Dallas Cowboys.

Coaching Jason Witten isn't a bad thing, to be honest.

Pope has long been considered one of the best tight end coaches in football. He has been an NFL coach for 31 years, 23 of those during two stints with the Giants. He was part of the coaching staff during all five Super Bowl appearances by the Giants, and also coached in one Super Bowl with the New England Patriots.

Meanwhile, there have been no further coaching updates from the Giants. The Giants still need new position coaches at running back and tight end, and may still shuffle the reponsibilities of quarterbacks coach Sean Ryan.
