Report: Cowboys Inquiring About 'Prominent Offensive NFL Assistant'

January 17, 2019 - 11:40 am

DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) - Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wouldn't make any statements regarding the future of his coaching staff in his final appearance on 105.3 The Fan Tuesday. 

Fast forward two days, and it appears that Jones may be tipping his hand about his plans for the Cowboys offense. 

According to Ed Werder, Dallas has inquired about the interest and availability of at least one prominent offensive NFL assistant coach.

Werder didn't name any names the report is a significant development into what the Cowboys may decide to do with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. The coach the inquired about has since agreed with another team, Werder added. 

"I like the direction we're going. I don't have any comments this morning about extensions or if we're going to do any replacing because my options are open. Anybody tells you there's gonna be a change, they don't know because I don't know this morning and I'm the last say," Jones said Tuesday.

Shan Shariff from Shan & RJ then asked Jones to clarify his statement for the record.

"There is no record. I reserve the right to change my mind when we hang up this phone," Jones said. "Why would I put some kind of ('official') statement out that says this is what we're going to do when we might have an opportunity (to better the #Cowboys coaching staff) here next week? This is the time when things need to be thought about ... when things need to be chewed on."
