Ex-Giants assistant Mike Solari joins Cowboys’ coaching staff
Former New York Giants offensive line coach, Mike Solari, will join the Dallas Cowboys and assume the same role for Big Blue’s NFC East rival.
The 68-year-old Solari has a long history with current Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy, dating back to their time in both Kansas City and Green Bay. It will also be Solari’s second stint with Dallas — the first coming under the late Tom Landry.
Mike McCarthy and new Cowboys O-line coach Mike Solari were on same Chiefs staff in 1997-98. McCarthy hired Solari to be Packers’ assistant O-line coach in 2005. This is Solari’s second tenure in Dallas (O-line assistant, special teams coach in 1987-88 under Tom Landry). https://t.co/RB3fMTGpQs

Solari’s coaching career began back in 1976 when he served as offensive line coach at Mission Bay High School. He made the jump to the NFL in 1987 and his resume is quite long. It includes a brief stop with the Giants from 2016-2017.
In addition to the Giants, Cowboys and Chiefs, Solari has held roles for the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks.
From 2006-2007, Solari also served as Kansas City’s offensive coordinator.
