Around a week after Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones let slip that the team’s new playcaller would be offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Bill Callahan, head coach Jason Garrett finally admitted to the press that the change had been made on Tuesday.
Previously, Garrett had met questions of the shift with a firm “no comment.”
"We’ve been working really since the end of January with that in mind, and what that in mind is Bill Callahan has been the acting offensive coordinator, and he’s going to take on the full responsibilities of calling the plays," Garrett said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "We made that decision months ago. Where we did have a little bit of a miscommunication was when we were going to present that publicly. It’s something you’ve asked me about a number of different times, and I told you, 'Well, we’re still working on that,’ and we were. We were working through the mechanics.”
Despite the seeming disconnect between he and Jones where the announcement was concerned, Garrett insists that he and the front office had no issue where the descision itself was concerned.
"Mr. Jones, Stephen (Jones) and I, we’re all on the same page and have been on the same page for months and been acting that way around this building," Garrett said. "We just hadn’t said it out loud."
