Earlier this afternoon, the Dallas Cowboys announced they were parting ways with offensive coordinator Scott Linehan.

After five seasons as the team's offensive coordinator, Linehan and head coach Jason Garrett reportedly agreed to part ways amicably, per the press release from Garrett.

Following the announcement, former Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant took to Twitter with what appeared to be a message for the fired offensive coordinator. Bryant doesn't appear too upset that his former offensive coordinator is without a job.

Check out his reaction.

The classic Kermit drinking tea meme graced the internet years ago and exemplifies a sarcastic expression used to insult - which is exactly what Bryant was going for in his response to Linehan's firing.

Before the 2018 season kicked off, Bryant took to Twitter to call out Linehan for his play-calling. When Stephen Jones called out Dez Bryant before the season, Bryant responded with, "Everybody lined up in the same spot for 17 weeks," which was an apparent shot at Linehan.

He publicly beefed with members of the Cowboys coaching staff over the years, but mainly with Linehan on the sideline. With Linehan gone, Bryant appears to be relishing in the new opening for the Cowboys.

Now we'll wait to see who fills the role.
