The Dallas Cowboys are interviewing former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan today for a position on their offensive coaching staff, per Ian Rapoport. There has been talk about Linehan joining the Cowboys to start calling the plays for the team on offense.

That would put current Cowboys offensive coordinator Bill Callahan in an awkward situation. Callahan is currently under contract for another season and would be the offensive coordinator in name only.

Can’t see any way that Callahan would be happy about bringing on Linehan on as the signal caller. It sounds like a messy situation again in Dallas in the coaching ranks.

Linehan served as the offensive coordinator for the Detroit Lions before that whole coaching staff was let go at the end of the season. If he were brought onto the Cowboys, he would look to build on the recent success with Demarco Murray and the running game and also build on the success of the passing game with Tony Romo. Let’s see what mess comes from this.

    Maybe there has been so much “anti-Callahan” talk and since Jerry Jones wants to back Jason Garrett, someone has to be the fall guy and what better way than bring in another Offensive Coordinator and force Callahan to resign. It is a stretch.
