According to Calvin Watkins of ESPNDallas.com, Garrett refused to confirm that Callahan was taking over the job he had previously held since 2007, saying there was no advantage to saying so.
Callahan tried to soft-pedal the situation which was made awkward strictly by Jones’ handling of it.
“I’m flattered and as I said this a long time ago when we were visiting in January and February, everybody has a stake in this,” Callahan said. “It’s a compliment to our staff and it tells you the way our guys work on the offensive side of the ball. It’s been productive all the way around. I’m really encouraged, I’m honored and just do the best job for our fans and our team.”
