Jason Garrett is sticking in the NFC East, with the former Cowboys head coach reaching a deal Friday to take over the Giants' offense.

A look at the coaching staff Mike McCarthy has put together thus far since taking over the Cowboys: DC – Mike Nolan OC – Kellen Moore ST – John Fassel QB –Doug Nussmeier WR – Adam Henry OL – Joe Philbin Assistant OL – Jeff Brasko RB – Skip Peete TE – Lunda Wells DL – Jim Tomsula LB – Scott McCurley DB – Maurice Linguist, Al Harris Note: Leon Lett could return as assistant defensive line coach.

Adam Henry, who spent last season with the Cleveland Browns, is expected to be the Cowboys receivers coach, according to a source. Henry talked with the Cowboys this week about the opening to replace Sanjay Lal, who was under contract for two more years. Henry's addition means Mike McCarthy has a lead coach at every position. Leon Lett remains a possibility to return as the assistant defensive line coach.

Mike McCarthy said the Cowboys will remain in a 4-3 defensive scheme, but indicated there will be a lot of flexibility in what they do under defensive coordinator Mike Nolan, who has experience in multiple defenses. But it's not about the base defense. “We're a sub-defense because we'll play it 85 percent of the time,” McCarthy said.

My sense on Kellen Moore continuing as playcaller: Mike McCarthy will be a lot like Bill Parcells when he had Sean Payton and Tony Sparano calling plays. He will be in Moore's ear a lot during games and heavily involved in the game-planning process. Also, told this was not a Jerry Jones' edict. McCarthy admired the work done by Moore and believes that will be best for Dak Prescott's growth.

McCarthy lets Moore keep calling Cowboys' plays

New Cowboys coach Mike McCarthy said he'd continue to have Kellen Moore call plays on offense because "I wanted to make sure we were able to capitalize on what has been established here."

Al Harris will join Mike McCarthy's staff as a defensive backs coach. Harris played for McCarthy in Green Bay and was an assistant in Kansas City from 2013-18. He had 21 interceptions in a 14-year career. The Cowboys will also have former Texas A&M cornerbacks coach Maurice Linguist as a defensive backs coach. No decision has been made yet on a receivers coach but Adam Henry, who was with Cleveland last year, is among the candidates.

Guard Zack Martin underwent cleanup surgery on his ankle Tuesday and will be ready to return during the offseason program, according to sources. Martin had been selected to play in the Pro Bowl for the sixth straight season and was named a second-team All Pro. He dealt with back and elbow injuries during the season and started every game, but he will not require surgery for those injuries.

Dallas Cowboys linebacker Leighton Vander Esch underwent surgery on his neck on Tuesday with the expectation that he will be available during the offseason program, according to multiple sources. Vander Esch missed seven games with the injury. The hope was he could avoid surgery with rest, but opted for a non-invasive procedure to alleviate the nerve issues he had been dealing with.
