Cowboys name Brian Schottenheimer new OC
The Dallas Cowboys have named Brian Schottenheimer their new offensive coordinator, the team announced Saturday.
Schottenheimer spent the 2022 season as a consultant for the Cowboys. He replaces Kellen Moore, who parted ways with the franchise after four seasons as offensive coordinator.
Schottenheimer will not be tasked with calling plays after Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed earlier this week that head coach Mike McCarthy will handle those duties.
A longtime NFL assistant, Schottenheimer previously served as offensive coordinator for the New York Jets (2006-11), St. Louis Rams (2012-14), and Seattle Seahawks (2018-20). The Seahawks finished with a top-10 scoring offense in each of his three seasons with the team.
Dallas had the fourth-best scoring offense in 2022, averaging 27.5 points per game. But the unit turned the ball over 23 times as quarterback Dak Prescott led the league with 15 interceptions.
