In the five days since the Dallas Cowboys’ season came to an end in Green Bay, the team has locked up both head coach Jason Garrett and Scott Linehan--who spent last season under the title of passing game coordinator, but will be promoted to offensive coordinator in 2015.
Garrett’s deal is for five years, Linehan’s for three.
The deals came as welcome news for Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who spent much of the 2014 season offering effusive praise for both Garrett and Linehan.
“I’m lucky to be around two coaches that are outstanding in every facet of the game,” Romo said, per ESPN Dallas. “I learn on a daily basis from them and look forward to next year and what we can accomplish.”
Aside from the offensive brain-trust, the continuity-conscious Cowboys also came to an agreement on a three-year deal with defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli this week, meaning most of their staff will be back in 2015.
