Scott Linehan was at the switches for one of the league’s most dynamic offenses this year, and it’s earned him some notice.
According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Raiders have requested permission to interview Linehan for their head-coaching job.
Linehan joined the Cowboys last offseason while they seemed to be struggling to decide who would call plays. He did, and they responded with record-setting seasons for Tony Romo, Dez Bryant and DeMarco Murray.
Of course, Linehan could have other suitors soon, too.
As noted by Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Linehan signed a one-year deal with the Cowboys, meaning he’ll be a free agent anyway.
Defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli’s two-year deal is also up, and head coach Jason Garrett’s a pending free agent as well.
So as well as things have gone for the Cowboys, they’re still the Cowboys, so a little drama should be expected.
