IRVING, Texas (AP) - Dallas owner Jerry Jones apparently hears the criticism that he's calling all the shots for the Cowboys again and undermining coach Jason Garrett as a result.
In an interview for the team's website, Jones said Garrett has a strong voice in an overhaul of the coaching staff and that his third-year coach is "the right man putting this together."
Jones also said Garrett will decide who calls the offensive plays in 2013. Jones indicated recently that Garrett would no longer run the offense on game days, leading to speculation that the coach was being stripped of those duties at the same time his staff was being dismantled.
Jones vowed to make things "uncomfortable" after consecutive 8-8 seasons that ended with losses in playoffs-or-bust finales under Garrett.
