The Tennessee Titans have appointed Brian Callahan, the former offensive coordinator for the Cincinnati Bengals, as their new head coach. For Browns fans and NFL enthusiasts alike, the question arises: could this mean that Bill Callahan, the highly regarded veteran offensive line coach, will follow his son to Tennessee?

Bill Callahan has earned praise as one of the NFL’s top offensive line coaches. Despite injuries to starters on the Browns’ offensive line over the years, there was confidence that Callahan would skillfully coach up replacements, exemplified by instances when players like Blake Hance, Michael Dunn, and Dawand Jones stepped in. While challenges, such as a dip in the run game, persisted, Callahan and his team managed to make it work. His stellar reputation was evident, and despite turning down an offensive coordinator job interview elsewhere in 2023, he seemed content in Cleveland.

The prospect of working with his son introduces a new dynamic, as highlighted by Brad Stainbrook of The OBR. However, a detailed article by Connor Orr of Sports Illustrated suggests that a reunion with his father may not be in the cards. The Browns have shown a strong commitment to retaining Bill Callahan, who is among the highest-paid assistant coaches in the NFL. Despite indications that the Browns intend to keep Callahan in Cleveland, the situation remains worth monitoring, particularly given the changes in the offensive coaching staff this offseason. If Bill expresses a desire to join his son, the Browns might face a challenging decision at this stage in his career. In the event of Callahan’s departure, the Browns could consider promoting assistant offensive line coach Scott Peters, who has worked alongside Callahan for the past four years.
