Brian Callahan has been climbing the coaching ladder and his climb will continue as he has now moved on from his quarterback coaching role with the Oakland Raiders to take over as the offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals.
Callahan only worked one full season with Oakland but it was enough for the Bengals to want him to help revamp what will be a new-look coaching staff in Cincinnati. In his lone season with Raiders quarterback Derek Carr, the fifth-year signal caller saw career highs in total completions, completion percentage, yards per attempt as well as total yards.
Previously, Callahan had worked with the Detroit Lions where he and Matthew Stafford had a successful stint together. Joining Callahan in Cincinnati will be another former Raiders coach as Jack Del Rio is expected to assume the defensive coordinator role.
Currently, the Raiders coaching staff is in Alabama as they coach the North team for the Senior Bowl, where coach Jon Gruden shared the news. With a vacant spot on the coaching staff, Gruden and GM Mike Mayock will seek to add a QB coach for the fourth consecutive season.
