 IRVING, Texas (AP) - Monte Kiffin figures he could be 52 and coaching the 3-4 defense instead of 72 and running the 4-3.
Age and scheme don't matter much to the new defensive coordinator for the Dallas Cowboys. Talent and passion do. Kiffin said Thursday that coaching is a question of ``do you like it or do you love it'' and says ``you got to love it.''
Kiffin, architect of the so-called ``Tampa 2'' defense when the Buccaneers won the Super Bowl after the 2002 season, will convert the Cowboys back to the 4-3. They used that alignment when coach Jason Garrett was a backup quarterback and Dallas was winning three Super Bowls in the 1990s.
Dallas switched to the 3-4 under Bill Parcells almost a decade ago.
