Baker Leaves Panthers to Take Same Job With Cowboys

The Panthers have lost defensive line coach Brian Baker to the Dallas Cowboys, he’s taking their position as their new D-line coach.

Baker, the former Carolina Panthers defensive line coach, said Tuesday he’s leaving the University of North Carolina after one month to take the same job with the Dallas Cowboys.

Baker cited many reasons for the move, including the obvious financial implications.

“It was a huge difference … I mean huge,” he said of the change in salary, since the Tar Heels job was for less than he made last year with the Panthers.

But mostly, it was about the star.

“I mean, it’s Dallas,” Baker said. “The thing that made me entertain the offer after such a short time with North Carolina was who it was from. The Cowboys are a special franchise.

“I can’t worry about the perception. I’ve talked to a lot of people who respond like, ‘You’re crazy for thinking about not taking it.’ But if they were around Butch Davis, they’d understand.”
