Dallas Cowboys center Travis Frederick believes a good deal of the credit for the resurgence of the offensive line last year belongs to assistant offensive line coach Frank Pollack, a nine-year NFL veteran who joined the team last February.
Pollack was left to work hands-on with the unit a year ago while offensive line coach and offensive coordinator Bill Callahan called plays. This offseason, Callahan was relieved of playcalling duties when Scott Linehan joined the staff, meaning the big boys up front will have the benefit of both Callahan and Pollack working more closely with the group this year.
“I don’t know how much credit he’s gotten, but I certainly think that he deserves a lot of credit for what he’s done,” Frederick said of Pollack, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Obviously with Coach Callahan being in the offensive coordinator role and stuff last year, coach Pollack spent a lot more time with us in a more direct role. So I think that he was very responsible for a lot of things that happened last year. Coach Callahan was certainly still very involved. It’s extremely nice this year to have them both around all the time.”
