The Dallas Cowboys still haven’t filled the assistant offensive line coach position left vacant when Frank Pollack was promoted to offensive line coach, but owner and general manager Jerry Jones said this week that former offensive tackle Marc Colombo is currently the frontrunner.
“You would have to think he’s the leader in the clubhouse because he’s highly, highly respected and thought of by all the members of the staff and I know firsthand with Jason [Garrett],” Jones said, per the Dallas Morning News, “and I can tell you the work he’s been doing around our place this year is really admirable.”
Colombo played for the Cowboys from 2005-2010, before spending his final season as a member of the Miami Dolphins. He returned to Dallas in April of 2012 to retire as a Cowboy.
Last year, Colombo worked in the team’s personnel department.
