Hoffman had been with the Cowboys since 1989, and was told during a meeting with Bill Parcells on Monday that he would not be retained as kicking coach.
Hoffman had developed a reputation for developing kickers of the "unknown" variety.
He had signed seven rookie free-agent place-kickers and four rookie free-agent punters in his career with the Cowboys.
SilverStarDigest first reported of the possibility of Hoffman leaving in a report on January 10.
The Cowboys have also released offensive line coach George Warhop this offseason, and Director of College and Pro Scouting Larry Lacewell has retired.
Several media outlets have reported that Tight Ends Coach Tony Sparano will take over for Warhop.
Tampa Bay offensive line coach Bill Muir, a long time Bill Parcells favorite, was believed to the leading candidate to replace Warhop, but contract issues prevented him from making the jump from the Bucs to the Cowboys.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys director of college and pro scouting, Larry Lacewell, "retired" two weeks ago, even though many reports indicate he was forced out after several questionable drafts in recent years.
It is now believed that the Cowboys are done with coaching changes this year.
