Dallas announced earlier this offseason that offensive coordinator Bill Callahan will call the offense next season. This upcoming season will mark the first time since 2007 that head coach Jason Garrett hasn't been calling the offensive plays for the team.
Callahan is no stranger to his new job, as he served as offensive coordinator of the Oakland Raiders from 1998-2001. He served as offensive line coach for the Cowboys last year and is entering just his second season in Big D.
Despite relinquishing a duty that was once his, Garrett publicly agreed with the move. Back in June, he told ESPN Dallas' Todd Archer:
[Callahan] was our run-game coordinator last year and getting more and more comfortable with our entire offense over the last couple of years. He's someone we believe is capable of doing it and doing a really good job for us.
Despite the struggles to make the playoffs in recent years, the Cowboys have boasted one of the NFL's top 10 passing offenses in six of the past seven seasons.
Of course, passing isn't the only aspect of an offense, and Callahan will need to work on mixing both passing and running into his play-calling.
If Callahan can bring a more balanced offensive approach to the Cowboys' offense, the team would have an easier time winning football games.
