CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The Bengals on Thursday announced they have signed Frank Pollack as offensive line coach.

Pollack comes to Cincinnati from the Dallas Cowboys, where he was offensive line coach from 2015-17 after being promoted from assistant offensive line coach (‘13-14).

Prior to the Cowboys, Pollack spent one season with the Oakland Raiders as offensive line coach (2012) and five seasons with the Houston Texans as assistant offensive line coach (‘07-11).

Pollack began his coaching career at his alma mater Northern Arizona (‘05-06).

In a strange twist, former Bengals offensive line coach Paul Alexander interviewed for the Cowboys offensive line coach position on Thursday.

Dallas was considered to have one of the top offensive lines in the NFL in 2016 and finished 2017 with the second-most rushing yards in the NFL and third-best yards per rush average.
