Former Oakland Raiders quarterback Rich Gannon has fond memories of his former coach Bill Callahan, and he thinks good things will come in his new position as the Dallas Cowboys offensive coordinator / offensive line coach.
“I remember in 2003 going into his office before a preseason game to share some concerns I had,” Gannon told Tom Orsborn of the San Antonio Express-News. “Two weeks later, I told him, ‘I don’t think you heard a word I said.’ Well, he pulled out his notes and regurgitated verbatim what I had said. He is good about offering feedback and wants interaction with his quarterbacks.”
Per Mike Wilkening, PFT: ' Gannon, who worked with Callahan from 1999 through 2003 in Oakland, called the Cowboys’ offensive coordinator “an excellent communicator.” If nothing else, it’s interesting to hear a perspective on Callahan from one of his former quarterbacks — not to mention one who had great success in Callahan’s offense when the Raiders captured the AFC in 2002.
