Dat Nguyen Leaves Cowboys

Nguoi-viet.com, Posted: Feb 11, 2010

DALLAS, Texas Dat Nguyen, the only Vietnamese American to play in the National Football League, has left his position as assistant linebacker/defensive assistant for the Dallas Cowboys.

He served in that position for three seasons, after seven years as a player with the Cowboys. ''He just felt like he couldnt move up the way he wanted to with us,'' coach Wade Phillips told the Dallas Morning News. ''He wants to coach linebackers himself.''

Nguyen shared his thoughts with the San Antonio Express-News. Nguyen has elected not to sign a contract extension after serving as the teams assistant linebacker/defensive assistant from 2007-2009.

''I want to grow as a coach,'' he told the newspaper. ''I want to be more hands-on and be more accountable to players. I definitely want to be in coaching. Its a part of my life. I want to make differences in kids lives.''
