Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is expected to get more involved in the game planning this season. Some day, he’d like to be the person who’s in charge of game plans.

Romo will have some say in which plays end up in the game plan this year, and people who know him say that’s something that he hopes leads to a career in coaching when his playing career is over.

He’d like to be a coordinator one day,” one person close to him told

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has said he’d like to see Romo become more like Peyton Manning in his approach to the game. Romo has never been given the kind of playcalling responsibilities that Manning has had for most of his career, but maybe that’s a responsibility Romo will have when his playing days are done.
