Scott Linehan Being Consider as Cowboys New Playcaller

Scott Linehan

So, if you are keeping score, if Linehan is brought in, the Cowboys will have a head coach who wants to call plays, an offensive coordinator who wants to call plays and a passing coordinator who will probably call the plays.

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and coach Jason Garrett are considering resolving their disagreement over who should be the team’s offensive playcaller with a compromise: They’re discussing hiring former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, according to league sources.

One source who expects Linehan to be hired speculated he could have the title of passing game coordinator while also being designated the Cowboys’ playcaller. If so, Linehan would become the third different offensive playcaller in three seasons in Dallas, following Garrett and current offensive coordinator Bill Callahan.
