Cleveland Browns Extend Offensive Line Coach

The Cleveland Browns' offensive line coach isn't going anywhere. According to NFL Network's Mike Garafolo, the team has signed Bill Callahan to an extension, and he will refuse opportunities to interview for offensive coordinator vacancies. Callahan is one of the most well-respected and successful offensive line coaches in the league; he has shaped dominant units with the Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, and Washington Commanders. He also worked as offensive coordinator to varying degrees of success with the Cowboys and Oakland Raiders. He even briefly served as head coach of the Raiders, leading the team to a Super Bowl appearance following the 2002 season before taking a head coaching job at Nebraska from 2004 to 2007.

Callahan is overqualified at this point to coach offensive line on a middling franchise like the Browns, but at 66 years old, he's likely content to have found his level in the league. The Browns and their fans can expect to continue fielding dominant, road-grading blocking units for the foreseeable future.
