Tony Romo expects Cowboys offense to remain “pretty similar”

Super Bowl Romo Big Stage Football

Romo is finally in the Super Bowl. After being unable to lead Dallas to the big game, Romo will call the game for CBS in his second season in the booth. But just like Jared Goff and Tom Brady, Romo is coming in with plenty of momentum after his call of the AFC Championship game _ where he predicted many of New England’s plays and tendencies _ drew universal accolades.

Cowboys fans wanted Tony Romo as their offensive coordinator.

“Well, they’ll have to wait,” CBS’ top NFL analyst said Tuesday, via David Moore of the Dallas Morning News. “I’m sure one day I’ll coach. Right now, I’m happy with where I’m at.”

Cowboys fans likely will get Kellen Moore, once Romo’s backup, as their offensive coordinator.

The team has yet to announce job titles for Moore and newly hired Jon Kitna, another of the team’s former quarterbacks, or who will call plays.

The Cowboys fired Scott Linehan, but Romo doesn’t expect much change other than the name of the coordinator.

“I honestly don’t know how it will play out,” Romo said. “I think it will be interesting to see what they morph into. In a lot of ways, I think they’ll probably stay pretty similar because the head coach is there, and it’s still probably going to be his verbiage.”

That’s not really what Cowboys fans wanted to hear.

Romo paused when asked what Cowboys must do to take the next step before saying, “Umm, that’s a good question.”

He then paused again before continuing.

“I’ll pass on that one,” Romo said.
