Cowboys Part Ways With Scott Linehan


Linehan played a large part in adjusting the Dallas offense last offseason. Tony Romo was the quarterback during those years, and Linehan was not named offensive coordinator until 2015.

"As Jason (Garrett) expressed, we met on Wednesday and had a good, direct talk", Linehan said in a statement. He and I had some really positive, substantive and open discussions which took place in the latter part of this week, and we ultimately agreed that it would be in the best interest of all of the parties involved if we were to make a change at this position.

"Scott has had an incredibly positive impact on our football team", Garrett added. "He is an outstanding football coach, a great friend and we wish him and his family nothing but the absolute best moving forward". But Dallas, despite winning the NFC East and a playoff game, finished 22nd in the National Football League this season in total yards of offense (343.8 yards per game), and 22nd in points per game (20.1). Dallas ranked No. 14 in points per game in 2018, with six games under 20 points. They defeated the Seattle Seahawks, 24-22, in the wild-card round before falling to the Los Angeles Rams, 30 -22, in last Saturday's NFC Divisional playoff game.

Linehan has worked as an offensive coordinator for four teams over 13 years.
