After being accused of sabotaging his own Oakland Raiders in Super Bowl XXXVII by his own former receiver, Tim Brown, now-Cowboys offensive coordinator/offensive line coach Bill Callahan released a long statement dismissing any such claim. Judging by his remarks this week, that statement will be the last he discusses the issue at any length.
“I addressed it,” Callahan said, per the Dallas Morning News. “I addressed it last month down at the Senior Bowl and I would leave it at that.”
The issue was made worse by the fact that Jerry Rice, the greatest receiver of all time who happened to be on that Raiders team, backed Brown’s allegations.
“I felt saddened, I felt disappointed and I felt outraged because of the nature of those comments,” Callahan said. “But again, you know, it’s in the past. It’s behind us and I moved forward and I hope Tim and Jerry have as well.”
