Maybe Jerry Jones handpicked Monte Kiffin to be defensive coordinator or maybe Jason Garrett made the call. Either way, Kiffin wants it to be known that everyone in the Dallas Cowboys organization is "unified."

"Everybody is on the same page," Kiffin said after the Friday morning session of rookie minicamp. "You may hear this or hear that or whatever, I just know that I was impressed ever since I've been here with the way we handle our meetings, starting with ownership and Jason and the whole bit.

"It's been awesome. I don't make stuff up."

Kiffin, who was hired to replace Rob Ryan in January, was just as energetic while speaking with reporters on Friday as he was during his introductory press conference four months ago, certainly not seeming like someone who is tired of coaching.
