VALLEY RANCH –– The Cowboys revealed offensive coordinator Bill Callahan, not head coach Jason Garrett, will be the offensive play caller this season, although Garrett would not confirm it and refused to share the information with the public.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said it was apparent by watching what Callahan was doing at practice how the club was handling the situation.
After practice, Callahan confirmed the job is indeed his.
“I’m really honored, I’m flattered to be part of this and take on additional responsibilities of calling the plays during the course of the game," he said.
The strange twist with this news is how the head coach handled it.
Garrett refused to confirm the decision. Instead he said he’s focused on the team’s ongoing organized team activities, adding there’s no advantage in revealing the information today.
Garrett drew big laughs from the press when asked whether his philosophy of giving out information to the media differed from Jerry Jones'.
“I’ll let you draw your own conclusions,” Garrett quipped.
