IRVING, Texas (AP) - The Dallas Cowboys have reassigned receivers coach Jimmy Robinson to clear the way for former Tennessee coach Derek Dooley.

The Cowboys made the hiring of Dooley official Monday and said Robinson would be a senior coaching consultant. Robinson also was the assistant head coach.

Dooley was fired at Tennessee in November after going 15-21 in three seasons. He was just 4-19 in the Southeastern Conference and 0-15 against Top 25 teams.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett and Dooley were assistants together with the Miami Dolphins in 2005-06.

It's a return to the Dallas area for Dooley, the son of former Georgia coach Vince Dooley. He was an assistant at SMU from 1997-99.

Robinson was Dallas' receivers coach for two years and oversaw a breakout season for Dez Bryant in 2012.
