Some facts on the Jason Garrett-Bill Callahan

YANKEE28 : 1/15/2020 6:12 pm
A think some on BBI are making a mistake to believe that its great news that Garrett and Callahan worked together and that their futures include working together on the Giants new coaching staff.

A few facts:

Callahan was successful for the 2012 season as the Cowboys O Line coach and running game coordinator, though the team finished 8-8.

During the offseason, Jerry Jones announced that he wanted Garrett more involved in game management, and Jones announced that Callahan would be calling the plays for the 2013 season. The Cowboys again finished 8-8.

In January 2014, Garrett hired his very good friend, Scott Linehan, to be the Cowboys passing game coordinator. Callahan was informed that play calling duties would now become Linehan's.

With the hiring of Linehan in January of 2014, Callahan advised the Cowboys that he had an opportunity to interview to become the Offensive Coordinator for the Browns. The Cowboys blocked him from interviewing.

Callahan was then approached by the Baltimore Ravens, again to interview to be their Offensive Coordinator. He was again blocked from interviewing by the Cowboys.

Callahan stayed on with the Cowboys, but left when his contract expired on January 14, 2015.

On January 15, 2015, Callahan joined the Redskins.

We don't know what Joe Judge's plan is for hiring his offensive coaches, but I thought it helpful to show a timeline.

Personally, I find it hard to conclude that a Garrett/Callahan reunion is coming to New York.

Thank you

i wonder if it was Garrett's call.

people truly believe Jones meddles in everything from in-game decisions to personnel.
Sounds like Jerry Jones

being Jerry Jones - a dick.

BBI should be all ears.
That combo

Is 100x better than Shula & Hunter. Itís an upgrade.
I do not believe that Garrett blocked him

If not, they would both have a reason to make beating the Cowboys a little more special. You would have to think that Garrett knows the Cowboys personnel extremely well and Callahan the Redskins. They both have worked vs. Eagles and Giants.
Excellent information.

Thank you Y28. I'm enjoying watching this all play out.
Another fact I forgot to add

Garrett and Linehan are close friends. How did that happen? They coached together for the Miami Dolphins in 2005. Worked for a guy named Nick Saban..........

Garrett, Linehan, and Callahan are all currently unemployed.
Donít want anything to do with Linehan

Neat items! How can this be?
Unless Callahan Thought Garrett and Not Jerry Jones...

Was blocking his promotions, I'm not sure that this is all that relevant.

The blocking of interviews might have been Jones, but you'd have to think that the playcalling going from Callahan to a guy that Garrett had a previous relationship with would be all Garrett. Although you can't put anything past Jones...

hubba, hubba, go deep, young man, go deep. Love it. 'Cept I hate that Yankees seem to be lock in 2020
There really should be 3 levels of coaches  
Blue Dream : 1/15/2020 11:04 pm : link
Position coaches. coordinators, and head coach. A team would only be allowed two coordinatorsto prevent teams from poaching whomever they want. This way a position coach could interview for a coordinator job if they want it and not be blocked. I do wonder if Shurmur's tenure might have turned out better if he could have bought Stefanski with him.
Linehan would be an excellent OC hire
