Report: Callahan Wouldn't Be Happy if Linehan is Hired

The Cowboys are reportedly interested in bringing in Scott Linehan as playcaller



    For fairly obvious reasons, Bill Callahan would be less than pleased if the Dallas Cowboys brought in Scott Linehan.

    Last Friday, a report by ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Ed Werder suggested that, in what would be described as a “compromise” move, the Cowboys would consider bringing the former Lions offensive coordinator in as playcaller--which was Callahan’s job in 2013.

    Even if Linehan is hired, all indications point to Callahan returning in the role of offensive coordinator/offensive line coach. But according to a Monday report by Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas, he still wouldn’t welcome the change.

    In fact, citing an unnamed source close to the situation, he would be outright against it. Asked if Callahan would be happy with the addition, the source reportedly said, “Hell no.”

    Callahan took over as the Cowboys’ playcaller last offseason, replacing Jason Garrett, who held that post--both as offensive coordinator and head coach--from 2007-2012.
