Dez Bryant sends cryptic response to Cowboys firing OC
The Dallas Cowboys announced on Friday that they are parting ways with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan, and it does not appear that Dez Bryant is going to shed any tears for his former coach.
Not long after the Cowboys released a statement confirming they have fired Linehan, Bryant sent the following tweet:

The timing is not a coincidence. That is basically Dez’s way of saying “I told you so,” and it is hardly a surprise that he feels that way.
Bryant had his best seasons with the Cowboys from 2012-2014. Tony Romo was the quarterback during those years, and Linehan was not named offensive coordinator until 2015. Bryant’s production steadily declined after Dak Prescott took over as quarterback and Linehan starting calling plays.
Toward the end of his final season in Dallas, Bryant made it clear that he was unhappy with the offensive scheme the team had been running. Whether he’s right or wrong, Dez likely feels that Linehan is partially responsible for his career taking the turn that it did.
