    Cowboys Hire Longtime Bengals OL Coach Paul Alexander

    Thus far the 2018 has brought a plethora of change to the Dallas Cowboys staff, especially on the offensive side of the ball. Now it is being reported the Cowboys have hired a brand new coach, former Cincinnati Bengals' Offensive Line Coach Paul Alexander.

    Alexander coached with the Bengals for over 20 years, and replaces the same man in Dallas who replaces him in Cincinnati, Frank Pollack. Alexander has also been the Bengals assistant since 2003.

    The Cowboys recently lost an assistant head coach when Coordinator Rich Bisaccia left for Jon Gruden's Oakland Raiders.

    Per usual, the hire has been met with mixed reactions from .

    The hiring of an offensive line coach who's rushing attack finished bottom five in the league in rushing yards per attempt five times since 2003 doesn't look too great on paper. He will also teach with different techniques and styles than previous Cowboys OL coaches, which could potentially set back the offensive line early in the season.

    Plus, respected Bengals' writer Joe Goodberry did not exactly love the hire for the Cowboys.

    Regardless, this is still a very talented offensive line and one which should lead an effective ground attack based on their talent alone. 2017 proved further that coaching matters a lot in the NFL however, and the wrong hire could set back even the most talented of units.

    We will just have to wait and see how this ends up playing out.

    I don’t know. A lot of the OL got nice contracts after they left the Bengals. There’s been respect around the league for the OL when they had talent. Should be interesting.

    Is the exodus of coaches from the Cowboys (and only an unemployed guy in return) a sign that coaches don’t want to work under Jason Garrett… or just an indication that Garrett may be on a one year leash and there is even less security than usual.

    Another genius hire by the jones that will come back to bite the organization in the butt.
    Traded one pathetic assistant coach for another pathetic assistant coach.
    Now Dak will really have to use his legs , because he will be running for his life.
    Dak will now have flashbacks of his days @ Mississippi State when he played against Alabama, for those last 3 years @ Mississippi State.
