​Now that ​Scott Linehan has been fired, the task of replacing him with someone in the coaching market that has a flair for creativity and experience with quarterbacks should be of the utmost importance this offseason for Dallas. 


One name that would be ideal for a quarterback like Dak Prescott is Carolina Panthers quarterbacks coach Scott Turner, the son of longtime ​NFL coach and Panthers offensive coordinator Norv Turner. 

The experience NFL insider Ed Werder is referring to ​​comes from the elder Turner's stint as offensive coordinator in Dallas from 1991-93, where he won two Super Bowls. Jason Garrett was Dallas' backup during those seasons. 


Scott has followed his dad around the NFL twice, serving as the quarterbacks coach during Turner's stints in Minnesota and Carolina. He was praised for his work developing Teddy Bridgewater before his injury. 

​​While Dak may not be the runner ​Cam Newton is, he has shown that he can be a weapon running the ball. 


Prescott would certainly benefit from someone who has helped tutor the most unique quarterback in the league.

​​If Turner turns out to be half the OC his dad was back in the day, the Cowboys would have hit a home run, should they follow Werder's suggestion of giving him a look.
