Dallas Cowboys admit mistake, fire O-Line coach Alexander

Dallas Cowboys admit mistake, fire O-Line coach Alexander

Coming out the team’s bye week, the Dallas Cowboys have made a coaching change. The team announced the release of veteran offensive line coach Paul Alexander. Alexander was hired in the off-season by the team. However, the team has seen a decline in the offensive line’s play. Now, just 8 weeks into the regular season, the team shuffles him out the door:

Dallas Cowboys O-line Struggles:

The hiring of Alexander coincided with a change in philosophy on the o-line. As a result, the team’s once vaunted line has shown some cracks in the foundation. Injuries have certainly played a role, with Travis Frederick out for the foreseeable future, and Tyron Smith occasionally getting knicked up. However, the team felt they had seen enough with Alexander in charge.

Familiar Face Now in Charge:

Now, the team has tapped in Marc Colombo to be the new offensive line coach. Colombo is a respected up-and-coming coach, who spent several years playing right tackle for the Dallas Cowboys. Hudson Houck has also been brought back in an advisory role, as the duo will be tasked with fixing an offensive line that has allowed 23 sacks this season.
