CultureMap Dallas: Kiffin, his defense on hook for this soon-to-be lost Cowboys season

Monte Kiffin

Monte Kiffin.

How do I say this? I’m sorry.

When the Cowboys hired Monte Kiffin to coordinate their defense and transition the unit from the 3-4 to the 4-3, I thought Jerry Jones was making an astute hire. I had covered the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and watched Kiffin work his magic with four different Bucs defenses. I thought his knowledge and experience would translate into a better Cowboys defense in 2013.

This Cowboys defense has been the worst unit in the NFL this season. Kiffin isn’t the only one at fault, but it’s clear he hasn’t reached his audience.

In my latest story at CultureMap Dallas, I talk about why the change that Jones made this offseason, while well-intentioned, is sabotaging this season.
