Thank You Coach Callahan





Thank you Coach Callahan. I have not seen an official statement from the Redskins thanking or acknowledging his time and effort here. Maybe I missed it. Started out as a High School teacher at 22 years old.

2015 - hired as the Redskins OL Coach
2017 - made Asst Head Coach
Oct 7, 2019 - named interim HC and went 3-8

I really like what Callahan brought as an interim coach. I really respect the job he did this year under tough circumstances. He righted the ship and this season could have easily unraveled but it didnt and I think that is a large part to him. He and the players focused on the football field and winning games.

Probably one of the the highest paid assistants in the NFL over the last few years, I am 100% positive he will coach in 2020 if he wants to.

Thank you Coach Callahan.

I really like what Callahan brought as an interim coach. I wasnt his biggest fan just bc of years of a stagnant run game but I really respect the job he did this year under tough circumstances. He righted the ship and this season could have easily unraveled but it didnt and I think that is a large part to him. He and the players focused on the football field and winning games.

I think you mean 22

Yesterday Dan Snyder thanked him personally before he introduced RR. Glad he did that. He was put in a real tough spot and overall did a nice job of bringing back a level of professionalism

Yeah, that's good enough for me. Does it matter if Dan does it at a press conference or in a news release?

I think Callahan knows his service was appreciated. Idk anything more than "thank you for keeping the ship upright in transition" is needed. Obviously he'll be coaching again somewhere else, he's still a fantastic line coach.

Re: Thank You Coach Callahan

Dan is showing he is not the Wicked Witch of the North.

If Bruce Allen was still here he would have sent Callahan a stocking full of coal, given Callahan 15 minutes to clean out his desk and the have him escorted out of Asburn with a couple armed guards; and finally sent out “secret” messages to the media claiming Callahan is the cause of global warming....

I know you are kind of joking, but does any one believe at some point DS just closed his eyes to BA and was like you just deal with it all. After seeing him give that speech you can tell he is not a big talker.

Yep, I also thought the fact he thanked Bill and didn't even mention BA was quite telling of him finally getting how bad things had got.
