Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett feels that giving up calling plays for his offense has given him more time to focus on other areas of the team.

Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett believes that giving up play calling for his side's offense has allowed him to focus on other areas of the team.

Garrett handed over controls to his side's offense to coordinator Bill Callahan during games at the start of the season and the Cowboys are currently ranked second in scoring in the NFL this year.

"I think it's been a good thing," Garrett told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "It's something that we've tried to do since I became the head coach, coming from the coordinator position.

"They're only so many hours in the day, so since I became the head coach, I was always trying to delegate some of the responsibilities I had within the coordinator position and within some of the head coaching responsibilities that I had. So now I can be more focused on some of the head coaching stuff."

The Cowboys are 5-4 in their season after week nine.
