Bill Callahan to coach the Redskins

 

The last time Bill Callahan was the head coach of a football team he was standing down in Oakland and the Raiders were relevant. Sure Callahan coached an MVP and Hall of Fame QB in Rich Gannon, but he still helped keep the team together. That is, until the disastrous Super Bowl appearance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Times have changed, in any event. Callahan is coming off of a resurgent season as the Dallas Cowboys primary offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. Callahan’s work was made easy by super stars DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant. Now Callahan is shipping himself off to Washington to try and do some special work for the Redskins.

In Washington, Callahan will be tasked with fixing one of the more porous offensive lines in the game. Behind oft injured young QB Robert Griffin, Callahan will have little help. Everything seems up in the air in Washington so this is definitely a risky move for the veteran coach to make. Still, if you want to make diamonds you have to endure some pressure.

Nobody expects much out of Washington in this coming year but the same cannot be true for the team that Bill Callahan left behind. Washington Redskins fans, like Dave and Brit Morin, are excited to see a dedicated offensive coordinator coming to their team. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones tried to keep Callahan but a deal never got put in place. The Cowboys, who are coming off of a controversial loss to the Packers, will have to really reassess what they are doing in this coming season.
