The Tennessee Titans are reportedly hiring Brian Callahan as their next head coach. Callahan has been the offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals for the past five seasons. He worked with the Denver Broncos as a quality control coach/offensive assistant, as well as the Detroit Lions and Oakland Raiders as a quarterbacks coach before joining the Bengals. He is the son of Bill Callahan who has been an NFL coach since the 1990s – including his stint as head coach of the Raiders. Bell is currently the offensive line coach with the Cleveland Browns.
Callahan will now turn his attention to assembling the staff. There has been some talk that Thomas Brown, who also interviewed for the head coaching job, might be at the top of the list. The Giants had a similar scenario when they hired Mike Vrabel. They interviewed Matt LaFleur at the same tournament. Vrabel brought LaFleur in as OC after he was hired.
The employee we might all be most interested in is the offensive line coach. He could always bring his dad, and there’s a rumor that Mike Munchak is interested in coaching here again – can’t go wrong with any of these guys. Fixing the offensive line is the first thing Callahan will need to focus on when he arrives in Nashville.
