Dallas Cowboys Running Backs Coach Won’t Return

 IRVING, Texas (AP) _ Dallas Cowboys running backs coach Skip Peete won’t return
following the worst 16-game rushing season in team history.
 
 The move, reported Monday on the team’s website, comes after Dallas finished
next-to-last in the NFL with 1,265 yards on the ground and averaged only 3.6
yards per carry. Starter DeMarco Murray missed six games with a sprained foot
and was still the leading rusher with 663 yards.
 
 Peete just finished his sixth season with the Cowboys after nine years in
Oakland.
 
 The Cowboys never had a 1,000-yard rusher under Peete but did finish seventh in
the league in rushing in 2007.
 
 Dallas also might be moving on without backup Felix Jones, who is a free agent
after finishing with 402 yards in an injury-plagued season.
