Former Cowboys running back coach Skip Peete has accepted the same position with the Chicago Bears.— Clarence Hill (@clarencehilljr) January 17, 2013
For the last seven years he's served in the same capacity for the Dallas Cowboys. Peete was fired from the Cowboys on January 7, 2013, after the Cowboys rushed for a franchise low 1,265 yards.
This is the second former Cowboy that Marc Trestman has hired after Joe DeCamillis was hired as assistant head coach / special teams coach.
Trestman and Peete worked together with the Oakland Raiders from 2001 - 2003.
