The Chicago Bears are trying to lure Bill Callahan to their coaching staff which would be a huge loss for the Cleveland Browns if this were to happen
When Kevin Stefanski took over as the head coach of the Cleveland Browns in 2020, he brought in Bill Callahan to run the offensive line. There was plenty of praise given for that hire as Callahan’s track record spoke for itself.
Everywhere he’s coached, the offensive line has made huge strides and that was again the case in Cleveland. Callahan took one of the biggest weaknesses on the Browns roster and helped turn it into a strength. Now, there’s a chance Cleveland could be losing him which would be a massive blow to this staff.
According to Erik Lambert of Sports Mockery, new Chicago Bears head coach Matt Eberflus is targeting Callahan for his staff and is currently trying to lure the veteran assistant to the Windy City.
Lambert says such a move would be “highway robbery” and he’s absolutely correct. Callahan was instrumental in helping Wyatt Teller reach his potential and did similar work with the Washington Football Team with Brandon Scherff. He was also the man behind the Dallas Cowboys’ dominant offensive line from 2012 through 2014.
As for the Bears, Cleveland fans know that Chicago could use Callahan’s help. They had a historic defensive performance back in Week 3 when the Bears managed just 47 yards of offense while Myles Garrett racked up 4.5 sacks — the team as a whole sacked Justin Fields nine times.
Callahan would be an excellent add for them as it would help them better protect Fields, who is entering year two in the NFL — and spent much of his rookie campaign running for his life.
Still, it would be a massive blow for the Browns should Eberflus be able to lure him out of Berea.
