Dallas Cowboys hire Scott Linehan as new play caller

DALLAS, TX - According to an NFL.com report, the Dallas Cowboys have picked up former Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.

Linehan will join the Cowboys as the new play caller.

The future for current Cowboys offensive coordinator Bill Callahan is unknown at this time, as the Cowboys are not letting Callahan out of his contract with them for the 2014 season, even though Linehan has been hired.

Callahan took over the play calling duties just this past season from head coach Jason Garrett.

Linehan replacing Callahan as the team's primary play-caller makes this Dallas' third offensive play-caller in three seasons.
