Tim Brown caught a lot of long bombs as a receiver for the Oakland Raiders. On Monday, he dropped a bomb on Bill Callahan, his former coach and current Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator during an interview with SiriusXM NFL Radio.
Brown said Callahan essentially threw Super Bowl XXXVII by changing the offensive game plan the Friday before the game.
Brown, a Heisman Trophy winner at Notre Dame, suggested that Callahan made the change to help then-Tampa Bay coach Jon Gruden.
Gruden was the Raiders' head coach four years prior to taking over the Buccaneers in 2002 and leading them against his former team in Super Bowl XXXVII, a 48-21 Tampa Bay win.
Brown, a standout at Dallas' Woodrow Wilson High, also said Callahan had a grudge against the Raiders.
"We all called it sabotagebecause Callahan and Gruden were good friends," Brown said. "And Callahan had a big problem with the Raiders, you know, hated the Raiders. You know, only came to Oakland because Gruden made him come.
