The Dallas Cowboys have hired former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. There is some belief that he could take over play-calling duties from offensive coordinator Bill Callahan, which would make him the third play-caller in three years.
That constant change has former Cowboys quarterback Troy Aikman concerned about their offense.
“I like Scott. I like Scott as an offensive guy,” Aikman said, via Clarence Hill of theFort Worth Star-Telegram. “He’s done a good job at other places he’s been. I think that they’re trying to find their way. There was the thought that last year with the changes that were made on both sides of the ball that there would be improvement, but really there was regression for both units. Now, more changes again.
“Changes aren’t necessarily bad, but I think there’s something to be said for continuity. But I’ve been a part of teams that had change that really benefitted from that. Hopefully the Cowboys will as well.”
