According to various sources, the Dallas Cowboys have hired former Detroit Lions’ offensive coordinator Scott Linehan as their new offensive playcaller for the upcoming 2014 season. Although the team has not officially made that announcement, it is believed Linehan attended coaches meetings at Valley Ranch on Monday.

And you know he was instrumental in dismantling the Cowboys defense in Week Eight when receiver Calvin Johnson torched Dallas for 329 receiving yards.

But did you know that this isn’t the first time Linehan has been a Dallas Cowboy? And that he played college ball under a legendary college coach with ties to the Cowboys Super Bowl wins in the 90′s? Or that he’s related to a Hollywood star? Find out all those answers and much more in my ten things you didn’t know about the Cowboys new playcaller, Scott Linehan.
