Dallas Cowboys hire Brian Schottenheimer as offensive coordinator
Brian Schottenheimer will be the new offensive coordinator of the Dallas Cowboys.
The team announced the hire on Saturday.
The 49-year-old Schottenheimer has previously held the position of offensive coordinator with the Jets, Rams and Seahawks, as well as the University of Georgia. In 2021, he was the passing game coordinator for the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Schottenheimer, who joined Dallas as a consultant in 2022, will replace Kellen Moore, who was hired as offensive coordinator of the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday.
According to The Associated Press, Cowboys head coach Mike McCarthy is set to call plays in 2023 after the club parted ways with Moore.
Owner/general manager Jerry Jones told reporters at the Senior Bowl on Wednesday that McCarthy will run a version of the West Coast offense he used when calling plays as head coach in Green Bay from 2006-18.
Executive vice president of personnel Stephen Jones hinted at philosophical differences between McCarthy and Moore, who kept the play-calling role for three seasons after McCarthy was hired.
The Cowboys haven’t had the head coach calling plays since Jason Garrett gave up that role after the 2012 season. Moore’s debut as offensive coordinator came in 2019, Garrett’s final year in Dallas.
McCarthy said he wanted to keep Moore as the play-caller because he thought it was the best thing for quarterback Dak Prescott.
