The Michigan football team lost another assistant coach Wednesday. FOX Sports’ Bruce Feldman reported that secondary coach Greg Jackson will be the new safeties coach for the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys.
Jackson spent only one year under head coach Jim Harbaugh in Ann Arbor. Before that, he was Harbaugh’s assistant secondary coach with the San Francisco 49ers from 2011 to 2014. He began his coaching career by making stops at four colleges over eight years from 2003 to 2010.
During his year at Michigan, Jackson and his fellow secondary coach, Mike Zordich, oversaw one of the most consistent defensive backfields in the country. The Wolverines finished third in passing yards allowed and first in passing efficiency defense.
Jackson, 49, also played in the NFL for 12 years, two of which as a teammate of Harbaugh’s with the San Diego Chargers, after a standout college career at Louisiana State.
