According to a report, it could be short-lived.Earlier Friday, the Dallas Cowboys officially announced they’d be parting ways with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. NFL reporter Ian Rapoport listed two “possible” replacements in the aftermath.Rapoport listed tight ends coach Doug Nussmeier as one option – and listed Coley as the other option. He said that the Cowboys could “look to the college game” if it were to consider Coley.Coley doesn’t have a ton of NFL experience, but he has worked with some big-time college programs that produced NFL talent. Over the years, he’s worked for LSU, Florida State, Miami and Georgia.As the #Cowboys dig into possible replacements for embattled OC Scott Linehan, they have one on their current staff — TE coach Doug Nussmeier — and may look to the college game to better utilize Dak Prescott’s talents. UGA OC James Coley will receive some consideration there.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) January 18, 2019Coley’s one NFL job came with the Miami Dolphins back in 2005-2006. He was an offensive assistant and quality control coach during his tenure there.The Cowboys finished 10-6 and made the playoffs this past season, but struggled on offense much of the season. They fell to the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional round of the playoffs, 30-22.If Coley does leave, it’ll put Georgia in an interesting position – having to fill a big role after the coaching carousel has been spinning for a few weeks now.last_img read more
