Well it took more than 45 minutes, but in his press conference Wednesday afternoon, Jason Garrett announced that the Dallas Cowboys new play caller is... Yet to be determined.
Garrett opened up with a long introduction of each and every one of the new hires, defensive coordinator Monte Kiffin, defensive line coach Rod Marinelli, et al, and offered up praise for each of the coaches that left or were cast off from Dallas this offseason. But as for who will be calling plays in 2013, we don’t know any more than we did this morning.
“As we go we’ll work through it,” Garrett said, per the Dallas Morning News. “We trust the process and we’re pretty confident we’ll get it right.”
Garrett went on to suggest that the team’s gameplan-by-committee approach means that naming an offensive play-caller isn’t a terribly pressing matter.
“It’s a collective process,” he said. “We gameplan together. It’s not like everyone sits around and I come up with the gameplan. That’s not how we operate. We have never operated that way. I think it’s stupid to operate that way. When you have great resources on your staff, you try to rely on those resources during the week and during the ballgame.
“That’s always how we’ve done it. It’s worked pretty well for us.”
