IRVING, Texas – Owner Jerry Jones admits he can get defensive when he hears people discuss the offseason moves made and assume he’s cutting the legs out from under head coach Jason Garrett.
Jones maintains that couldn’t be further from the truth and that Garrett has been a focal part of the decisions made this offseason, including which coach will call plays. All indications are that Garrett will relinquish that role next season.
“It has never been an issue with Jason Garrett,” Jones said. “Never. That was his GM. That was me, by having him come in here as play-caller and doing that for the very first time. But as for being the play-caller for the last six years, it was me that said, ‘Boy, I’d prefer it being the head coach that’s doing the offensive play-calling,’ to the extent that he decides that he’d rather do it another way. (It) is not a takeaway.”
