New offensive coordinator Scott Linehan has said the Dallas Cowboys’ running game will be the team’s strength this season.

After finishing second-to-last in the NFL in rushing attempts a year ago, Linehan’s comments must be music to the ears of Pro Bowl running back DeMarco Murray.

“It’s always great to hear those things,” Murray said Monday. “I don’t care what we do, running, passing, as long as we’re winning, I’m happy with the overall stat, which is a win or a loss.

“[Linehan] brings a lot to the table and we’re excited to have him.”

Murray, a third-round pick in 2011, rushed for 1,124 yards and nine touchdowns while averaging 5.2 yards per carry last season. No running back with at least 120 touches averaged more per attempt.
