With all of the staff shuffling on the Dallas Cowboys staff this year, it's already pretty confusing for players as to whom they report to and when. You have a head coach, a running game coordinator, an offensive coordinator, a defensive coordinator and an assistant head coach-defense, whatever that is.
It could also be a bit of a threat to Jason Garrett's power within the room, and not only because of the job titles floating around. There's also a ton of guys on the coaching staff with head coaching experience, at the NFL and college level, and that could also be seen as a threat to Garrett.

Just to keep track, there's Bill Callahan, Rod Marinelli, Scott Linehan, Monte Kiffin and even wide receivers coach Derek Dooley, who's famous for wearing bright orange pants on the sideline during his days as the head coach at Tennessee.
That's a ton of big voices, and while, in theory, it could only help Garrett, that theory might have some holes in it.
