FRISCO, Texas – The Bengals announced that Frank Pollack, the Cowboys’ offensive line coach for the last three seasons, is joining Cincinnati’s staff in the same role.
Reports surfaced earlier this week that the Cowboys were parting ways with Pollack as part of several changes to Jason Garrett’s coaching staff.
Pollack joined the Cowboys as assistant offensive line coach in 2013 and continued the development of Pro Bowlers Tyron Smith, Travis Frederick and Zack Martin. He succeeded Bill Callahan as offensive line coach from 2015-17. During that time, he oversaw the development of younger linemen such as La’el Collins and Chaz Green, who have spent time in the starting lineup over the past three seasons.
The Cowboys have not confirmed candidates for offensive line coach, but multiple reports say Paul Alexander and Tom Cable are potential replacements. Alexander and Cable parted ways with the Bengals and Seahawks, respectively, since the season ended. Cowboys assistant offensive line coach Marc Colombo could also be an option.
The Cowboys have already seen turnover on their offensive staff. Garrett has said tight ends coach Steve Loney is expected to retire. Wide receivers coach Derek Dooley has accepted the offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach job at the University of Missouri. And Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones told 105.3 The Fan that Kellen Moore is a candidate to become quarterbacks coach, amid reports that Wade Wilson is not expected to return.
