The Dallas Cowboys have reportedly hired former Lions’ offensive coordinator Scott Linehan to take over playcalling duties from Bill Callahan, a move that (reportedly) doesn’t sit well with Callahan. But it doesn’t look like the team has any intention of parting ways with their offensive coordinator/offensive line coach.
ESPN Dallas reports Tuesday that the Cleveland Browns requested permission to interview Callahan, but the Cowboys denied them. The Baltimore Ravens reportedly asked for an interview with Callahan last week, and we’re assuming the answer from Dallas was the same in that case.
As Jerry Jones is always ready to point out, Callahan is under contract through the 2014 season. He does have a connection to the Browns through new head coach Mike Pettine, as the two worked together with the Jets under Rex Ryan, from 2009 to 2011.
Callahan joined the Cowboys in 2012.
