Cowboys name Brian Schottenheimer as new OC

The Dallas Cowboys have named Brian Schottenheimer as the team’s new offensive coordinator, it was announced Saturday.

The Cowboys agreed to part ways with previous offensive coordinator Kellen Moore last week and owner and general manager Jerry Jones has said coach Mike McCarthy will be calling the plays next season.

“I am very happy to have Brian take on this key role with our team,” McCarthy said. “He has been an important part of our staff already and has a great grasp of where we are and where we want to go.”

The Cowboys initially hired Schottenheimer, 49, as a consultant before the season. Before then he worked as the Jacksonville Jaguars’ passing game coordinator under Urban Meyer in 2021 and previously worked for the Seattle Seahawks, Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets, among other stops.

Brian is the son of longtime NFL coach Marty Schottenheimer.
