Bill Callahan will call the plays for the Dallas Cowboys in 2013.
So says owner Jerry Jones, and even Callahan confirmed it. Just don't expect acknowledgement soon from coach Jason Garrett, the play-caller since joining the staff in 2007.
After Jones strongly suggested Tuesday that Callahan would call plays and the former Oakland coach said it was ''a real honor'' to have the role, Garrett would only say that the same plan had been in place for a long time.
Garrett was hired as offensive coordinator six years ago and kept the play-calling duties when he replaced Wade Phillips as head coach halfway through the 2010 season.
Jones first hinted about Callahan taking over that role at the Senior Bowl in January.

This is pretty good news for Dallas Cowboys fans, especially with the newer guys out there. Bill Callahan is a pretty solid offensive coordinator that will do a great job for the Cowboys. Expect Romo’s numbers to go up, as well as Dez Bryant’s. The Cowboys now...
It is never a good sign for the head coach when the owner takes away his play-calling duties. It undermines his authority with the entire team.
Jason Garrett has never seemed to be in charged of the Cowboys, at times last year it appeared Rob Ryan was acting more like the head coach than Garrett.
Even though Garrett has bristled at the notion that play calling should be taken out...
The delivery of the news is "uniquely Jerry" where communication skills seem forever stuck in reverse, and complete with comedy ensuing. Think about the true joy of being a principle member (Say, Bill Callahan or Jason Garrett) of a rather significant news story and surrounded by the leering press and to be asked about questions where you are not sure whether or not your...

It's coming up on the beginning of a new season for the Dallas Cowboys.
