The Dallas Cowboys made some big changes this offseason on the coaching staff. Kellen Moore was let go in favor of head coach Mike McCarthy becoming the play caller. McCarthy is known for running the West Coast offense but Dallas has been running a slightly different offense in the previous season. McCarthy is apparently combining the two and giving it a new name, the Texas Coast offense.
Dallas Cowboys Texas Coast Offense
“It’s got definitely some West Coast principles,” Dak Prescott said. “But has a little bit of what we’ve done in the past and just marrying them together with a lot of detail and maybe in a sense, a system that’s not out there.”
The offense isn’t going to be exactly what McCarthy ran in Green Bay but it also will be different from last year. New offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer said that the goal is to add some flavor to the offensive playcalling.
Looking To Finally Breakthrough
The Cowboys have been so close in the past ten years. They have had some amazing regular seasons only to fall flat in the playoffs. Last year was no different as the team had a great season but it ended in the divisional round. The NFC conference is winnable this year with the Eagles and 49ers being the main competition. The hope is that McCarthy can recapture the magic from his Super Bowl caliber teams from a decade ago. If not, he might find himself on the hot seat.
The Dallas Cowboys and their Texas Coast offense will be fun to watch this season. CeeDee Lamb, Brandin Cooks, and Tony Pollard, the team has no shortage of weapons. If everything comes together, this could be one of the best offenses in the NFL this season.
