[UPDATED] Redskins Hire Bill Callahan to Coach Offensive Line

The Redskins coveted Bill Callahan for OL Coach, and have reportedly signed him

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

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.
