When the Cowboys hired Scott Linehan to call plays on offense this season, they took away some of the responsibilities that offensive coordinator Bill Callahan had last year.
That reportedly didn’t sit well with Callahan, who received interest from the Browns and Ravens about coming onboard after the Cowboys shuffled up their staff. The Cowboys blocked those teams from interviewing Callahan, however, and he remains in Dallas trying to do the best job he can.
“I just take on the mindset that things happen for a reason,” Callahan said, via the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I live with that, and I move on. I make the best of every situation I’m in. I’ve never worried about anything else. I’ve always had confidence in myself and my abilities to do a good job. My focus has always been to do a great job where I’m at, and everything else takes care of itself. I’m not concerned about any of that stuff.”
The Cowboys ranked fifth in the league in points per game last season, but they put up their fewest yards since 2005 and blew their chance at a division title with a Week 17 loss for the third straight year. That led them to alter their coaching staff once again and left Callahan to focus on his offensive line coaching duties even if he might want to be doing more somewhere else.
