A source tells ESPN Dallas that OC Bill Callahan would be upset if the Cowboys hire Scott Linehan.
How many inept playcallers can the Cowboys have on one staff? Jerry Jones previously stripped the duties from Jason Garrett and then Callahan proceeded to bungle the usage of DeMarco Murray this season. Now they're looking at Linehan, who was fired by the Lions earlier this month. If Linehan is hired, Callahan could end up leaving to become Mike Pettine's offensive coordinator in Cleveland.

Cowboys hired ex-University of Tennessee coach Derek Dooley as WRs coach.

It's unusual to go from plum SEC job to position coach, but Dooley must have preferred returning to the NFL over coordinating a college offense. Dooley worked alongside Jason Garrett in 2005-06 with the Dolphins, coaching tight ends. Although Dooley's tenure as Vols coach was a spectacular failure, he proved adept at developing wideouts.

According to a "reliable team source," speculation that the Cowboys' recent coaching hires are a sign owner Jerry Jones is preparing to replace Jason Garrett with Jon Gruden is "ridiculous."

New DC Monte Kiffin and offensive play-caller Bill Callahan both spent years working under Gruden, while Garrett's brother/TEs coach John departed for the Bucs. New DL coach Rod Marinelli and ST coordinator Rich Bisaccia have also worked for Gruden. However, if Jones is planning a "Chucky" takeover, he won't do so until 2014. Now on the wrong side of 70, Jones will be certain to pursue big names to replace Garrett if the Cowboys tank again in 2013.

The Cowboys "have held discussions" with Bengals assistant coach Hue Jackson about joining the offensive staff in some capacity.

The role in which Jackson would slide into is uncertain, but preliminary talks were focused on the offensive coordinator position. Bill Callahan fills that role and was just promoted to offensive play-caller on Tuesday. Jackson's contract in Cincinnati was a one-year deal, so he's technically a coaching free agent.

Cowboys OC Bill Callahan will call the offensive plays in 2013, not head coach Jason Garrett.

Garrett has been calling plays in Dallas since being named offensive coordinator in 2007 all the way through 2012 as head coach. Callahan, the Cowboys' OC and offensive line coach, will now handle the role while Garrett simply focuses on being a head coach. Jerry Jones seemed intent on stripping Garrett of the duties, so he finally did so. The Cowboys were No. 6 in total offense in 2012. This move will just make it easier for Jones to fire Garrett in-season if he so chooses. Hue Jackson and Mike Tice were also mentioned as potential candidates for the job.

ESPN Dallas mentions Hue Jackson, Jim Caldwell, and Mike Tice as potential offensive play-caller options for the Cowboys.

Jackson is an assistant head coach for the Bengals and was linked as a possible Panthers OC candidate before losing out to Mike Shula. Caldwell is currently calling plays for the Ravens, and Tice was recently let go after coordinating the Bears offense for one season in 2012. In-house candidates are QBs coach Wade Wilson and OL coach/OC Bill Callahan. Jason Garrett has been reluctant to give up his play-calling duties, but Jerry Jones seems intent on finding a solution.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett is now open to owner/GM Jerry Jones bringing in another play-caller.

Garrett said Monday that he planned to remain the offensive boss, but his stance has changed after Jones made it clear that it would be an "uncomfortable" few weeks at Valley Ranch. Ex-Chargers coach Norv Turner, Dallas' coordinator for the 1992-93 Super Bowl teams, is viewed as the top candidate to take over the Cowboys' offense.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett said he plans to remain the team's offensive coordinator and play-caller in 2013.

Dallas had been linked as a potential landing spot for Norv Turner to land on his feet as offensive coordinator, but Garrett says it's in the best interests of Tony Romo to keep the system the same and not make a change. Romo enjoyed a fine year in 2012 while setting career-highs in completions (425), attempts (648), and yards (4,903), but he was sacked a career-worst 36 times and tied his worst single-season mark with the 19 interceptions.

According to FOX's Jay Glazer, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett's job is "safe."

The seat can go from lukewarm to sizzling in light speed in Big D, but owner Jerry Jones has always been extremely fond of Garrett. Unless the Cowboys absolutely face-plant the next two weeks — which can't be completely ruled out — Garrett should be back for his third full season in 2013.

Browns in-limbo team president Mike Holmgren denied Monday that he is interested in the Cowboys' head coaching job.

Rumors surfaced of Holmgren's interest over the weekend, and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones stated he was "flattered" to hear of them, even if he isn't interested. "I don't know how any of that stuff gets started," Holmgren said. "The last time I talked to anybody about my future was in this (Browns) room. I honestly don't know what I want to do." Holmgren has repeatedly flamed out as a personnel shot-caller, but he's always been a successful head coach.

Cowboys coach Jason Garrett has hinted he may be willing to surrender play-calling duties to new OC/OL coach Bill Callahan in 2012.

"I think that’s something that will evolve," Garrett said. "(Our) starting point will be pretty much how it’s been in the past ... but I have a tremendous amount of confidence in (Callahan). His role will be significant, and we’ll just see how the role evolves." The Cowboys ranked 11th in yards gained and 15th in points per game in 2011, but could benefit from having Garrett focus more on his head-coaching duties in his third year on the job. Callahan has extensive experience as a play-caller.

Cowboys OL coach Hudson Houck has retired from football, and will be replaced by Jets OL coach Bill Callahan.

One of the more famous position coaches in NFL history, Houck has been coaching someone's offensive line since 1982. He was first with the Cowboys from 1993-2001, and returned in 2008. Although his retirement is bad news for Dallas, Callahan is generally considered one of the best line coaches in the league, and is an ideal replacement. He's also taking on the title of offensive coordinator, though Jason Garrett will continue to call plays.

Cowboys hired former Packers WRs coach Jimmy Robinson as assistant head coach/wide receivers.

Robinson coached up the best receiver corps in football in 2010. The 50-year-old also oversaw Marvin Harrison's early-career development in Indy, coached Andre Rison in Atlanta, and Joe Horn in New Orleans. Robinson won't have a big game-day impact because head coach Jason Garrett is likely to call plays, but he'll be of plenty help in practice and the meeting rooms.

The Cowboys will interview Hall of Famer Bruce Matthews for an assistant offensive line coach position.

The 14-time Pro Bowler has been a Texans assistant the past two seasons. Matthews played for Cowboys offensive line coach Hudson Houck at USC in the early '80s, and could be viewed as Houck's heir apparent in Dallas.

Cowboys re-signed TEs coach John Garrett.

It's notable because he was in the hunt for the Dolphins' offensive coordinator job. Garrett, who also holds the title of passing game coordinator, will stay on with brother Jason for his fourth season in the organization.
