Cowboys RB coach Peete out after woeful rushing season

IRVING, Texas -- 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 gained 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 recently 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.
