Report: Cowboys do not want Jason Garrett calling plays

Jason Garrett

The Dallas Cowboys are doing some shuffling with their coaching staff this offseason, and one of the biggest possible changes is Jason Garrett taking back play-calling responsibilities in the wake of offensive coordinator Scott Linehan being fired. However, the team would apparently prefer a different arrangement.

According to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media, Cowboys executives want Garrett to continue to oversee the coaching staff, not call offensive plays.

Garrett used to call plays for the Cowboys several years ago, and there was talk early this season about him taking that responsibility back when Dallas was struggling. However, it should be noted that his conservative approach has cost the team in some big spots, so perhaps a fresh perspective would help.

Dallas looked much better on offense after acquiring Amari Cooper in a trade, but there is still a lot of room for improvement. Even if he’s not calling the actual plays, Garrett will have plenty of say.
