Cowboys hire Steve Loney as assistant OL coach

IRVING, Texas -- While there has been no official announcement yet, the Dallas Cowboys have hired Steve Loney as their assistant offensive line coach, according to multiple sources.

Loney will replace Frank Pollack, who was promoted to the head offensive line job following Bill Callahan’s departure for the Washington Redskins after the season. Marc Colombo, who worked in the scouting department last season and helped coach the offensive line at the Pro Bowl, will continue as an offensive assistant. Colombo played for the Cowboys from 2005-10.

This will be the third time Loney has worked with Cowboys offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Loney worked on Linehan’s staff with the St. Louis Rams in 2008 and was the Minnesota Vikings' offensive line coach for two seasons during Linehan’s run as their coordinator.

Loney was a consultant at Arkansas last season following a two-year stay as the assistant offensive line coach for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2012-13.
