Cowboys asst. O-line coach Frank Pollack promoted to O-line coach

Thursday January 15th, 2015

Dallas Cowboys assistant offensive line coach Frank Pollack has been promoted to offensive line coach, according to a source.

Pollack, 47, replaces former Cowboys offensive coordinator and offensive line coach Bill Callahan who left to become the offensive line coach for the Washington Redskins. Pollack has been the assistant offensive line coach for the Cowboys the past two seasons and instrumental in the team’s offensive line becoming one of the NFL’s best.

Left tackle Tyron Smith, center Travis Frederick and right guard Zack Martin were selected to the Pro Bowl this season. Behind that trio, running back DeMarco Murray led the NFL in rushing (1,845 yards).

An eight-year NFL offensive lineman, Pollack was the offensive line coach for the Oakland Raiders in 2012. He was the assistant offensive line coach for the Houston Texans from 2007-11.

Pollack coached the offensive line at his alma mater, Northern Arizona, in 2006 and also oversaw the program’s tight ends the previous season. He was a sixth-round pick of the San Francisco 49ers in 1990 and played for two seasons before joining the Denver Broncos from 1992-93.

Pollack then rejoined San Francisco for the next four seasons before retiring as a player.
