Kitna returns to NFL with Cowboys, seeks growth in Prescott

OXNARD, Calif. (AP) Jon Kitna unfolded a piece of paper detailing that day's practice plan because he thought it was a good way to illustrate why the former Dallas quarterback was back in the NFL with the Cowboys after coaching high school football for seven years.

Dak Prescott's new position coach never stopped communicating with Jason Garrett, who replaced the fired Wade Phillips as head coach while Kitna was starting for an injured Tony Romo halfway through a lost season in 2010. Now Kitna is on the staff of a man he calls a mentor - even though Garrett is only seven years older.

"Like, literally, I could bring one of my coaches here from the last seven years and I could hand them this, and they'd know exactly what this is and how it works and what we're doing," Kitna said as he held out the paper. "He gave me all that stuff."
