Former Oakland Raider WR Tim Brown talked very highly of Bill Callahan, but he quickly put him down just a few seconda later saying he is a better positional coach than head coach.
“I would say this and I mean this sincerely, I thought Bill Callahan was the best X and O coach I’ve ever been around,” Brown told WTEM-AM, via CSN Washington. “His ability to draw plays in the dirt on the sideline and get us out of situations and what he did with the offensive line at that time was amazing.”
He then said this about him being a head coach.
“I just think when it came to making big decisions he had a difficult time,” Brown said. “He belongs as a position coach, not as a head coach. It was too big of a gig for him, but he’s a smart guy. You can’t be a coach in the NFL at that position and not be a smart guy. That’s all I’ll say about Bill Callahan.”
Remember Brown also said Callahan tried to sabotage the Raiders back in the day.
