Jason Garrett weighs in on Scott Linehan calling plays


The Dallas Cowboys are on their third offensive coordinator in three years, their third play-caller in fact. During an interview with David Moore of the Dallas Morning News, Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett weighed in Linehan taking over the play-calling duties.

“My first exposure to coaching was under him,’’ Garrett said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He and I have very similar philosophies about offensive football and how we do things. There are some terminology things that are common to both of our offensive systems, and certainly they are philosophically similarly in foundation.

“You always want to evolve your offense from year to year and continue to grow with your system. There is a foundation that we have in place, a philosophy that’s very similar, and we’re excited about the different things that he’s going to bring.’’
