No Hue For You: Dallas Cowboys Give Play-Calling Duties To Bill Callahan

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys decided on their play-caller in 2013, removing the title from their head coach and giving it to the offensive coordinator.

At one point supposed speculation existed that the Dallas Cowboys could look outside the organization for a new play-caller, removing those duties from head coach Jason Garrett. And one of those supposed play-callers outside of the organization included Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson in idle conjecture.

There's nothing to it.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones confirmed to ESPNDallas.com that play-calling duties have been stripped from Garrett and given to offensive coordinator and line coach Bill Callahan, who is in the news on Tuesday for other reasons.

Jackson is one a one-year deal, which expires next month, but we assume that if he can't find a promotion, he'll stick around in Cincinnati for another season. We made the argument on Monday that Cincinnati should create a new title of passing game coordinator for Jackson, applying to his history as an offensive coach with experience working alongside quarterbacks and wide receivers.
