Apparently the Hue Jackson to Dallas Cowboys story isn't quite as dead as we were led to believe.
With Jackson being a prominent option as an offensive coordinator due to his experience, interviewed at one point for the position in Carolina, the idea of Jackson linked to Dallas was contingent of owner Jerry Jones stripping the play-calling label from head coach Jason Garrett. And by strip, we mean forcefully removed.
According to reporters talking with owner Jerry Jones during a Q&A at the Senior Bowl on Tuesday, Jones said that someone other than Garrett would be the team's play-caller. That led many to conclude that it would be team's offensive coordinator and line coach Bill Callahan. Yet the timing couldn't have been more perfect with former Raiders receiver Tim Brown accusing his former head coach of wanting to lose the Super Bowl -- something that Jerry Rice corroborated. However no official announcement regarding Dallas' new play-caller has actually been made.
