There’s been more attention paid to the front office than the coach staff in Washington recently, but there have been some changes to Jay Gruden’s group of assistants as well.

The Redskins announced on Tuesday that Bill Callahan has added the title of assistant head coach. The former Raiders and University of Nebraska head coach has been the offensive line coach for the last two seasons.

Callahan’s title change comes after offensive coordinator Sean McVay left to become the Rams head coach. Matt Cavanaugh is now the offensive coordinator while Gruden will call the offensive plays.

There were a few other moves announced as well. Chad Grimm, son of Redskins great Russ Grimm, will be the outside linebackers coach after spending the last two years as a defensive quality control coach. Bret Munsey will be the assistant special teams coach and Chris O’Hara has been hired as the offensive quality control coach after two years as a coaching associate with the Jaguars.

    Is this the same Callahan that lost the SB for the Raiders because he didn’t even bother to change the name of the plays they were running?
    Yeah…that’s the guy I want to give an “Assistant HC ” title too.

    Are you sure that didn’t use some whiteout to change “Assistant to the Head Coach” on his business cards?

    He’s really shored up the o-line since he’s been here. I think it’s a good call to promote guys from within who’ve done well in helping turn the team around. Cavanaugh included.

    One of the best position coaches in the league with a lot of head coaching experience, including coaching in the Super Bowl. It makes sense.
