Jason Garrett Could Take Over Play-Calling Duties From Scott Linehan

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that the Cowboys have “strongly considered” coaching changes this year including before the season when HC Jason Garrett elected to keep OC Scott Linehan.

During the team’s recent bye week, Rapoport says they reconsidered moving on from Linehan, but elected to part ways with their offensive line coach instead.

According to Rapoport, it’s possible Garrett will make the decision to take more control of the team’s team including replacing Linehan as team’s play-caller in the coming weeks.

Linehan, 55, began his NFL coaching career with he Vikings in 2002 as their offensive coordinator/WRs coach. He spent three years in Minnesota before having stints with the Dolphins, Rams and Lions.

The Cowboys hired Linehan as their passing game coordinator in 2014 and promoted him to offensive coordinator a year later.

We’ll have more regarding Linehan and the Cowboys as the news is available.
