The Dallas Cowboys stripped offensive coordinator Bill Callahan of play-calling duties, just one season after they were stripped from head coach Jason Garrett and handed to him. The Cowboys are holding onto Callahan and not letting him leave either.
“Everybody thinks the world of Bill,” Cowboys executive vice president Stephen Jones said, via the Dallas Morning News. “It’s an unfortunate situation that he gets caught up in the, well, he got something taken away from him or whatever it’s going to be portrayed as. But Bill Callahan is an unbelievable football coach. We just weren’t going to give him up and Jerry [Jones] and I have a great relationship and the coaches have a great relationship with him.
“Everybody wants to go sometimes try to do what they were doing or whatever. But when we signed him contracts are two-way streets. They are not just for us to deal with if it doesn’t work out. And Bill is a professional;. Are you kidding me? He is working his butt off. Was he disappointed? Everybody has disappointments. I have had it. I’m sure you have had disappointments. Everybody has them.”
