Shortly after the rumors surfaced, saying the Dallas Cowboys were interested in bringing in Scott Linehan to take over play-calling duties, a report came out saying that offensive coordinator and 2013 play-caller Bill Callahan would be none too pleased with this set-up.
We haven’t heard from Callahan since Linehan’s hiring became official this week, but head coach Jason Garrett doesn’t foresee any problems with Linehan and Callahan--whose title, offensive coordinator/offensive line coach, will apparently remain unchanged--working side-by-side.
“You make a lot of different decisions for the team and you do it always in the best interest of the team,” Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. “You're trying to put guys in roles where they will thrive and be best for the team and this is no different than that. Bill is a pro. Bill's been doing this a long time. He understands transition and change and all those things. He along with the rest of the staff will embrace this and hopefully as a team we'll be better.”
