[dropcap]R[/dropcap]ich Bisaccia’s stint as part of Gus Malzahn’s staff at Auburn only lasted 22 days, and Bisaccia says that’s not something he’s proud of.
Bisaccia accepted a position as Auburn’s assistant head coach, running backs coach and special teams coordinator and had begun recruiting for the Tigers when Jason Garrett convinced him to join the Dallas Cowboys’ staff.
“This is probably the most exciting time of my life in professional football, to be a part of Jason Garrett and the Dallas Cowboys organization,” Bisaccia told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram . “A little embarrassed about how it happened, about having to go through Auburn and only spending 22 days there. That’s not really my style. I’ve actually been really proud of some of the long stays I’ve had at particular places but for it to work out like this and have an opportunity like this I feel blessed in one way and certainly fortunate.”
Bisaccia coached special teams for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002-10. He met Garrett in 2004 when Garrett was a backup quarterback for the Bucs. Bisaccia will be reunited with Tampa coaches Monte Kiffin and Rod Marinelli in Dallas.
Bisaccia spent the past two seasons as the San Diego Chargers’ special teams coordinator and assistant head coach.
Prior to his work in the NFL, Bisaccia coached at Ole Miss, Clemson and South Carolina.
