The Dallas Cowboys have hired the well-traveled and often-criticized Brian Schottenheimer as their new offensive coordinator.
Cowboys announced they hired Brian Schottenheimer as their new offensive coordinator.

With Kellen Moore now in Los Angeles with the Chargers, Dallas had a void at OC, and Jerry Jones wasted little time turning to Schottenheimer who spent this season as a consultant with the team.
Head Coach Mike McCarthy will be the new play-caller, but Schottenheimer is expected to have a significant role in Dallas’ offensive game-planning.
Cowboy fans are hard to please – and needless to say, the Schottenheimer hire didn’t exactly lead to celebrations in the street…
Let me guess….. y'all don't like Brian Schottenheimer either…. typical Cowboys fans

Some kept their skepticism controlled…
Brian Schottenheimer makes me increasingly worried about the Cowboys offense.
I dont see how this is viewed as a positive step in the right direction by any means.

Others were a bit more forward with their frustration…
Definition of insanity: Cowboys hiring a dude from the revolving door of NFL coordinators: Brian Schottenheimer.
Here’s the lock of the century: he’s gone by ‘26 and the cowboys make the playoffs once and only advance past wildcard round once. Easy. What a miserable sport

The Cowboys may be the most popular team in the NFL, but they are also the most hated as well – and the haters were out in full force following the hire…
Brian Schottenheimer is one of the worst coaches the NFL has ever seen and thankfully he is employed by the Dallas Cowboys https://t.co/0srDDEF9O2

The bottom line is the Cowboys have issues and it won’t be Schottenheimer who makes or breaks them…
Brian Schottenheimer was just named Cowboys OC INO – offensive coordinator in name only. Nothing for him to coordinate. Mike McCarthy won the power struggle with Kellen Moore and will put together every game plan, call every play. You're on, Mike … the hot seat.

The Cowboys have been the absolute definition of mediocrity for several years now. For as much heat is on McCarthy, even more should be on quarterback Dak Prescott whose contract looks worse and worse by the day.
“America’s Team” hasn’t won the Super Bowl in 27 years and counting… Brian Schottenheimer is far from the only addition they need to make if they wish to have a chance at ending their long, painful drought.
