The Dallas Cowboys made some coaching changes this past offseason. They fired defensive coordinator Rob Ryan and re-assigned play calling duties from head coach Jason Garrett to offensive coordinator Bill Callahan. Neither one of those decisions seem to be paying off and after games with 36 and 37 yards rushing and not being able to get star players the ball on offense, there was some rumblings that Garrett should take over calling plays.
Garrett said he could if he wanted to, but doesn’t plan on doing so. Owner and general manager Jerry Jones doesn’t plan on making any changes either.
“You can say it any way you want to, I’m not even going to address, really I’m not, coaching staff as to whether they’re safe or whether they’re not,” Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “Obviously, what have we got, three or four days this week and then we go into next week. We’re 5-5. We’re tied for the lead in our division. We’ve got players coming back. We’ve got one of the best quarterbacks in the National Football League. We’re off a rough loss. That doesn’t call for major changes out here at all.”
Asked could he take over the playcalling duties Garrett said “absolutely.” Said he won’t do it.
