Adam Henry, 47, is the new wide receivers coach for the Dallas Cowboys. Henry is from Beaumont, Texas. He went to McNeese State for college, where he also played football. To this day, he ranks in the top 10 in school history in receiving yards and touchdowns.
He spent a very brief time in the NFL as a player, spending training camp and the preseason on the New Orleans Saints in 1995 and 1996.
The Cowboys will be Henrys fifth NFL team as coach (Raiders, 49ers, Giants, Browns).
Henry began his coaching career in 1997 at his alma mater, McNeese State where he coached the receivers until 2005 and then he took over as the offensive coordinator for a year before transitioning to the NFL.
Henry started his NFL coaching career as the Offensive quality control coach from 2007-08 and then moved to the tight ends coach from 2009-2011.
Under Henrys guidance, Zach Miller became the first tight end in Raiders history to lead the team in receiving for three straight years.
Henry mostly notably coached Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry at LSU from 2012-2014 and later reunited with the two star receivers in Cleveland with the Browns.
At the Pro Bowl, Landry told the NFL Networks Jane Slater that Henry is two things, a father figure and a disciplinarian but is also very relatable to his players.
Henry appeared to send a message to his future receivers with the Cowboys while speaking with Mike Fisher from SI.com, “I’m not a players coach. I do have a level of connection with players. But expectations are expectations,” Henry said.
Henry went onto say that there is a level of excellence that his receivers must meet and that he’s a “coaches coach.”
