Bill Callahan Could Also Be Part Of A Jon Gruden Staff

One of the real draws to hiring Jon Gruden would be his ability to bring with him some of the top assistants the NFL has to offer.

John Morton, Paul Guenther, and Gus Bradley have already been linked to a potential Gruden staff and so has Gruden’s former quarterback, Rich Gannon.

As it turns out, another big name and familiar face to Raider fans could be be in the mix.

Former Raiders head coach Bill Callahan remains one of the most respected offensive line coaches in the league and also has a chance to join Gruden (Callahan spent the past few years with Jay Gruden in Washington).

For the past three seasons the Raiders offensive line has been coached by Mike Tice, who was instrumental in building one of the top offensive lines in Oakland.

A transition to Callahan would certainly ease the loss of Tice, who will inevitably soon be out of the picture.

One final note from Arrigo (who had the Callahan report) is that it sounds like general manager Reggie McKenzie will remain with the team in the event Gruden is hired by the Raiders.
