Mike McCarthy says Cowboys will build offense around Dak Prescott


The Cowboys' offensive scheme will remain mostly the same with coach Mike McCarthy now in charge of play-calling duties and former offensive coordinator Kellen Moore now in Los Angeles with the Chargers.

When speaking with reporters at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis on Wednesday, McCarthy said the plan is to not make "wholesale changes" to the offense, but it will change by 30 to 35 percent.

McCarthy said that the offensive language will remain the same, but the coaching staff will add layers to an offense that quarterback Dak Prescott is already comfortable with, which he says Prescott is on board with.

"We all can use a new voice. We all can use a sense of motivation and challenge and so forth. This is a new challenge for (Dak), his words. He’s very excited about it," McCarthy said.

"He's had a chance to go from the different variations of the offense that was in place. He's getting ready to take another turn as far as the variation of what we're getting ready to do. We're going to build it off of what he has established. My decision to stay with his concepts is still intact because I wouldn't have did what I did in 2020 if I still didn't believe in him. We obviously as an organization, myself included, feel very strongly about him as our future, and we will definitely build this thing around him."
