Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will be calling the plays for the first time in 10 years when the team takes the field in the preseason. Callahan says he is up to the challenge and after a turbulent offseason with enough drama to fill a television show, the mystery of who would be calling the plays was cleared up last week by owner Jerry Jones and head coach Jason Garrett. Callahan stated he will call the plays, but the offensive game plan will be "a collective effort across the board." “Excited would be the word, would be the adjective, that I would use,” Callahan said, via Rowan Kavner of DallasCowboys.com. “I’m really excited. Anxious now. I wish we could continue working like we’ve been here, because the situation coach [Jason Garrett] has put us in has been tremendous.” “We’ve had a lot of play-it-out scenarios, we’ve had two-minute, we’ve had four-minute, we’ve had red zone play-it-out, we have team blitz play-it-out,” Callahan said, “so we’ve been in every possible scenario you could be in situationally, and we’ve called the game live on the field. That communication process has really gotten more comfortable for me, Wade and the quarterback.” “I’ve always taken each situation that I’ve been in and tried to do the best I can,” Callahan said. “If there was an opportunity to help, and I told Jason, if there’s any opportunity I can help serve you as a coordinator, if I can call plays, if I can take something off your plate … then that’s great.”
