Jason Garrett admits that Bill Callahan will call Cowboys plays

When Jerry Jones spilled the beans on the Cowboys' play-calling duties shifting from head coach Jason Garrett to offensive line coach Bill Callahan last week, Garrett was caught off guard and refused to confirm the change at a press conference. Garrett came clean on Tuesday, using a press conference to sum up how the system would work and emphasizing the team's offense would remain a collaborative process.

The public efforts of Jones, the team's owner and general manager, to make things “very uncomfortable” for Cowboys players and coaches after a disappointing 8-8 season have included Garrett giving up play-calling to allow him more time to improve as an in-game manager.

Consecutive 8-8 records in Garrett's two seasons as Cowboys head coach as well as some late-game time management failures have seemingly put him on the hot seat in 2013.
