Callahan to the Jets



We told you on Thursday that things didn't materialize between the Bucs and former Nebraska coach and Jon Gruden friend Bill Callahan.

Today, he opted to sign with the Jets, for whom he will coach the running game and serve as an assistant head coach.

Callahan wasn't going to be able to work with the offensive line in Tampa after the Bucs retained Bill Muir as their line coach. In New York, Callahan will get the chance to do exactly that, which is considered his specialty.

Callahan was a Gruden assistant in Oakland and succeeded Gruden as head coach there. He's considered quite adept at running Gruden's offense, which he kept intact after Gruden's departure for Tampa. Callahan was fired by Nebraska late in the 2007 season.
