Since the birth of the Dallas Cowboys in 1960, Brandt served as the team’s chief talent scout, as well as Vice President of player personnel until 1988. He also served as a part-time scout for the Los Angeles Rams under GM Tex Schramm in the 1950s. Together with Schramm and Coach Tom Landry, they formed the triumvirate which led the Cowboys for their first 29 years.
Brandt was known as one of the first NFL talent scouts to look outside the country for potential players. Knowing the skills of Latin American soccer players, he looked to them for kickers. He left the Cowboys after Jerry Jones bought the team. After a few years, he made a comeback on the football scene as a print analyst and draft expert.
Brandt also plays a role in selecting the Playboy All-American Football Team together with sports editor Gary Cole.
