It was reported two days ago that the Washington Redskins had granted the Buffalo Bills permission to interview OL Coach Chris Foerster permission to interview for the same job. Foerster has history with new Bills OC Greg Roman, who coached under Foerster with the Baltimore Ravens from 2006-2007.
The Cowboys have made a push to resign a number of their coaches who had expiring contracts after this year. They locked up Head Coach Jason Garrett to a new 5-year, $30 million deal this week, and also re-signed Defensive Coordinator Rod Marinelli and Passing Game Coordinator Scott Linehan. Linehan will now be the Offensive Coordinator going forward and Callahan is not expected back. He had the title of Offensive Coordinator/OL Coach last season, but that was title only with Linehan having a big say in the Cowboys offense. Callahan tried to get out of his contract last season, but the Cowboys did not allow it.
Skins will be making a play for Bill Callahan. Their OL coach, Chris Foerster likely to reunite with Rex in Buffalo. Skins covet Callahan...— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 15, 2015
If Skins able to land Callahan, would be a double win for them - Dallas's loss would be their gain. Master in the run game and w/OL building— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 15, 2015
In fact, I'm hearing Callahan to the Skins could end up happening pretty quickly. Would be another big get in this offseason for them— Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) January 15, 2015
With Callahan set to leave Dallas, don’t assume he’ll wind up as OC. Plans to be very selective, I’m told. High demand for his OL services.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) January 15, 2015
If you want to know Callahan’s reputation, simply check my mentions. Fans of many teams now hoping he comes to fix OL. And many execs agree.— Jeff Darlington (@JeffDarlington) January 15, 2015
