Redskins Hire Former Cowboys OL Coach Bill Callahan

ESPN’s Ed Werder reports that the Redskins have added former Cowboys OL coach Bill Callahan to their coaching staff.

  • According to Werder, Callahan receives a “very lucrative” three-year contract with the team.
  • Werder mentions that Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was hoping they would get an opportunity to match or counter the offers he received, but the bidding reportedly got too expensive for his services.

Earlier in the day, Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reported that a deal could come together pretty quickly, so this isn’t a huge surprise that it got done today.

For what it’s worth, Todd Archer expects the Cowboys to replace Callahan with Frank Pollack.

Callahan deserves a lot of credit for turning what was once one of the worst offensive lines in football into, arguably, the best unit in the entire league.

He also helped to develop first-round picks LT Tyron Smith, C Travis Frederick, and G Zack Martin into big-time contributors.

I’m sure Washington is very excited about adding him to their staff.
