Garrett Hoping Changes to Offense Will Help Cowboys “Break Through”

2013 will be Jason Garrett's third full season as head coach and the first in which he won't be calling plays

The talk of the Dallas Cowboys offseason thus far has been mostly centered on the defensive side of the ball. The reason for this is no big mystery, of course. The defense will be getting a complete overhaul between now and the opening of the 2013 season, with a brand new defensive coordinator installing a brand new system with the help of several brand new assistants.

But as head coach Jason Garrett points out, the times they are a-changing for the offense as well. The team has a new running backs coach, receivers coach and offensive line coach, and it was announced a few weeks ago that Garrett would give up play-calling duties (It’s widely assumed that offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will take over in this department).

Garrett is hoping that these changes will help the offense, which has shown flashes of brilliance in recent years, finally “break through,” so to speak, and find some consistency.

"This is an opportunity to add some people and add some influence to our offense," Garrett said, per ESPN Dallas. "And hopefully it's a tweak for us that can help us get a little bit better and help us break through as a football team. So that's really the approach right now we want to stay on the same track but also we want to add coaches to our staff that can really help us break through."
