The 39-year-old is the son of former Raiders head coach Bill Callahan. He’s worked in the NFL since 2010 when he started as a coaching assistant with the Denver Broncos. He worked his way up the chain to become the Broncos’ offensive assistant in 2013 and left the post after the 2015 season.

The Detroit Lions hired Callahan as the team’s quarterbacks coach for the 2016 and 2017 seasons, and then he served as the quarterbacks coach for the Las Vegas Raiders in 2018. In 2019, he was hired to be the Bengals’ offensive coordinator and helped guide the team to a Super Bowl appearance with Joe Burrow, Ja’Marr Chase, Tee Higgins and Joe Mixon on the offensive side of the football.
