    REPORT: Cowboys Replacing OL Coach Frank Pollack

    According to a , Frank Pollack, will not be returning in 2018. He has held the position since 2015. Pollack was promoted in 2015 when departed for Washington. He served as an assistant under Callahan for two years prior.

    The news was reported by Alex Marvez of Sporting News. He did have a slight error on Coach Pollack's name, however:

    The Cowboys have had one of the league's best offensive lines during Frank Pollack's tenure. , , and have gone to the all three seasons. Dallas has finished 9th, 2nd, and 2nd again the last three seasons in total rushing yardage.

    With three first-round picks and a lot of the invested in the offensive line, the Cowboys clearly aren't taking the position lightly.

    A major blight on Pollack's resume is the failed development of 2015 3rd-round pick , who has been unable to produce consistently. His abysmal performance this year starting at against the , which led to being sacked eight times, was the lowest point yet.

    While there is no indication yet who will replace Frank Pollack as the offensive line coach, it is possible that the Cowboys will once again promote from within.

    Marc Colombo, who played for the Cowboys from 2005-2010, has worked under Pollack since 2015.

    Last week, Dallas announced would move into the quarterback coach position despite no previous experience. If they're willing to trust Moore this quickly, there's no reason to think Colombo couldn't move up as well.

    The Cowboys may look elsewhere for a replacement, but it does appear certain that Frank Pollack is on the way out. It's just another change in a tumultuous month for the team's .

    Improving things by firing another coach who had nothing to do with writing the game plans, calling the plays, making halftime adjustments, making personnel substitutions, or drafting the players. Yep, that’s the ticket!

    It’s hard for Garrett to really fault Pollack, for Green and Bell not being able to move laterally at OT. I don’t mind the churn on the staff, but having nobody behind Tyron Smith is the fault of the Jones’s. The biggest reason the Giants have been sucky for years on end, is that they keep making the mistake of not building the OL.

    It should be religion in Dallas. Build that unit first, and then keep adding to it.
