Cowboys' Bill Callahan would be upset if play-calling duties were stripped

The Dallas Cowboys, or should we say Jerry Jones, stripped head coach Jason Garrett of play-calling duties. Those were then awarded to offensive coordinator Bill Callahan, who may or may not have been successful at calling plays depending on who you ask.

Callahan, and the Cowboys, struggled at times and their play-calling was highly scrutinized. There were too many short passes or abandoning the run, though who was responsible is hard to identify with multiple people point the finger different directions. Now, there are reports that Callahan could lose play-calling duties and he wouldn’t be happy about that.

From Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas:

If the Dallas Cowboys hire Scott Linehan as the playcaller, it would upset the current one, Bill Callahan.

A source said Callahan would be opposed to a move and that he would contemplate his future with the Cowboys should it happen. Callahan, who is signed through the 2014 season, became the playcaller in 2013 when Cowboys owner/general manager Jerry Jones wanted to take those duties away from head coach Jason Garrett.

When the source was asked would Callahan be happy with a potential change, the source said, “hell no.”

Wouldn’t be surprising to see Jerry make a change after just one season with Callahan at the helm.
