Will the Dallas Cowboys be making any major coaching changes following the team's 2018 season?

Early suggestions out of Dallas indicate that the answer will be "no," as head coach Jason Garrett said he didn't believe any major changes would be coming.

However, that might not be the case.

The Cowboys' front office, including Stephen Jones, has since said that it's probably too early to make any definitive statements on the team's coaching plans.

Now, we have NFL insider Ed Werder reporting that the Cowboys have inquired about at least one prominent assistant coach.

"A source tells me the #Cowboys have inquired about the interest/availability of at least one prominent offensive #NFL assistant coach," he reports.

Most Cowboys fans are hoping for a big change on the offensive side of the ball.

Dallas' offensive coordinator, Scott Linehan, is one of the most-respected assistant coaches in the NFL, but fans have grown tired of his offensive schemes over the last year or two.

Many NFL experts believe that the Cowboys' offense, primarily quarterback Dak Prescott, would be better suited with a more creative offense that better utilizes his running ability.

Prescott is one of the biggest, most-athletic quarterbacks in the NFL, but the Cowboys only seem to go to his legs in the red zone, and even that is rare.

Still, it would be tough to blame the Cowboys' front office for remaining steady in their approach. Dallas won seven of its last eight games and won a home playoff game.

The Cowboys are one of the youngest teams in the NFL, too, and have plenty of room to improve heading into 2019.

Stay tuned.
