Bill Callahan Hired As Offensive Line Coach

Posted Jan 15, 2015

The Washington Redskins announced on Thursday that they have hired veteran NFL coach Bill Callahan to lead their offensive line.

The Washington Redskins announced today that they have named Bill Callahan as Offensive Line Coach.

Callahan is entering his 17th NFL season, including capturing the 2002 AFC Championship as head coach of the Oakland Raiders. He has been a member of an offensive staff that has finished in the Top 5 in rushing or passing 10 times, including No. 1 overall in rushing twice (2000, ’09) and passing once (2002). Callahan has had 10 offensive linemen combine for 22 Pro Bowl selections during his career.

Callahan most recently served as offensive coordinator/offensive line coach for the Dallas Cowboys from 2012-14 and helped guide the franchise to its first NFC East title since 2009. In 2014, the Cowboys finished second in the NFL in rushing (147.1) with running back DeMarco Murray leading the league in rushing and setting a Dallas franchise record with 1,845 yards. Callahan had two offensive linemen named to The Associated Press 2014 All-Pro team (Tyron Smith, Zach Martin).

Callahan, 58, served as assistant head coach/offensive line coach of the New York Jets from 2008-11. During his tenure with the Jets, the offense ranked second in the NFL in rushing yards per game (137.9) and made it to two consecutive AFC Championship games (2009-10).

Prior to his tenure in New York, Callahan served as head coach for Nebraska from 2003-06, leading the Cornhuskers to the Big 12 Conference Championship in 2006 and two bowl invitations in his four seasons.

Callahan served as head coach of the Raiders from 2001-02, leading the NFL in passing yards (4,689) set team records for total offense (6,237) in 2002.

Callahan and his wife, Valerie, have four children: daughters Cathryn and Jaclyn, and sons, Brian and Daniel.
