Bill Callahan named new Redskins offensive line coach

Bill Callahan is leaving the Dallas Cowboys for the Washington Redskins.

Callahan held the title as offensive coordinator of the Cowboys last season but was stripped of many of his duties as Scott Linehan called the plays. Given that he was never expected to return to the Cowboys and now joins the Redskins as an offensive line coach.

Long regarded for his ability to work the offensive line, Callahan was instrumental in a unit that allowed DeMarco Murray to lead the NFL in rushing during the 2014 season. Now he will turn his attention to protecting Robert Griffin III who was sacked an eye-popping 33 times while committing nine fumbles.

Callahan’s work will be cut out for him but overall this is being considered a necessary signing for the Redskins. They need all the offensive help they can get.
