Jerry Jones Takes Play-Calling Duties Away From Jason Garrett


A bizarre offseason in Dallas with uncertainty looming for all staff members has just taken it’s latest turn. The latest member of the Cowboys organization to lose a lot of power is head coach Jason Garrett.

According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has stripped Garrett of his play-calling duties. Offensive coordinator/line coach Bill Callahan will now take over the play-calling duties.

Last week, Garrett’s brother, John, left the Cowboys coaching staff to join the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It seems increasingly likely that Jones has a plan up his sleeve and that he is setting up for a backdoor move that would send Garrett out the door in Dallas with a replacement ready to be named. There is no certainty to those rumors, but the chance that Garrett will be the Cowboys head coach in 2013 appears to be decreasing.

    I’m surprised Jones himself isn’t taking over the play calling. He thinks he knows it all.
