Cowboys' Scott Linehan wants to keep the offense the same

The Dallas Cowboys are on their third offensive coordinator in as many seasons, and Scott Linehan thinks the way to being successful is to keep things relatively the same.

“The No. 1 goal, and I told Jason [Garrett] this when I came here, is to keep a lot of things the same,” Linehan said on 105.3 FM, via Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News. “It’s a lot easier for the players to not have to change how they call things. To the naked eye, they’ll be similar.

“I just want to be an asset and bring some ideas that maybe haven’t been implemented that I can add to current things that were done well in the systems I’ve been around.

“Jason and I have a good background. … There are a lot of similarities. It’s just the language. I just basically made the commitment to transfer over what I’ve called things, the way people call things to keep it consistent for the players so they can step on the field and be ready to go from the get-go of OTAs.”

With that being said, Linehan is known for his vertical offenses and said he thinks the Cowboys have the offensive weapons to execute it. Linehan also said they’d lean on the run and DeMarco Murray.
