Brian Callahan enters his ninth season in the NFL, his first with the Silver and Black, as
quarterbacks coach. Callahan joins the Raiders after spending the past two seasons coaching
in the same capacity with the Detroit Lions.
Callahan’s guidance and development of QB Matthew Stafford was apparent, as Stafford ranked
in the top-10 in touchdown passes (53), passing yards (8,773), completions (759), completion
percentage (65.5) and pass interception percentage (1.7) over the course of Callahan’s two-year
stint with the Lions.
Last season, Stafford ranked third in the NFL and first in the NFC in passing yards (4,446),
fourth in passing touchdowns (29) and sixth in completion percentage (65.7 percent), the secondbest
mark of his career. Stafford also threw just 10 interceptions for the second consecutive year, a
career low for the quarterback.
In his first year with Detroit in 2016, Callahan coached Stafford to an NFL-best eight fourthquarter
game-winning drives, the most by a signal caller in a single season since the 1970 AFL-NFL
merger. In the season’s finale and Stafford’s 109th career game, he set an NFL record by crossing
the 30,000-yard barrier in the fewest games in NFL history, breaking Hall of Fame QBs Dan Marino
and Kurt Warner’s record of 114.
Prior to joining the Lions, Callahan broke in to the NFL with the Denver Broncos, spending six
years with the club in a multitude of offensive roles, entering as a coaching assistant in 2010,
quality control – offensive from 2011-12, offensive assistant in 2013-14 and finished as an
offensive assistant/quarterbacks coach in 2015.
During his tenure with the Broncos, Callahan helped mold one of the NFL’s most potent offenses
that led the Broncos to five consecutive AFC West titles from 2011-15, including a Super Bowl 50
victory in 2015.
As the team’s offensive assistant/assistant quarterbacks coach, Callahan guided a quarterback
room to their fourth consecutive season with at least 4,000 yards through the air. Despite the
rotation of quarterbacks throughout the season, WRs Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders
both topped 1,000 yards receiving for the second consecutive year. They combined for nine 100-
yard outings and added six scores apiece.
The Broncos finished fourth in the NFL in 2014 in total offense, averaging 402.9 yards per
game, and ranked second in points per game by averaging 30.1. Under Callahan’s watch, six
offensive starters were named to the Pro Bowl that season, two of which earned the nod for the first
time in their career (RB C.J. Anderson and Sanders).
In 2013, Callahan mentored QB Peyton Manning to his fifth Most Valuable Player Award after
leading the club’s offense to an NFL single-season mark for points scored (606) while throwing for
55 scores. The team won its third consecutive AFC West title and competed in Super Bowl XLVIII.
Additionally, the Broncos led the NFL with an average of 457.3 yards per game.
In 2012, the Broncos finished fourth in the league in total offense, averaging 397.9 yards per
game while topping the 30-point mark in an NFL-best 11 contests that season. With the help of
Callahan in a quality control – offense role, Manning threw 37 touchdowns in his return to the
gridiron, the third most in the league. Additionally, WRs Eric Decker and Thomas caught 13 and
10 touchdown passes from Manning, respectively, totaling the most (23) of any duo in the league
Before the arrival of Manning, Callahan helped guide an offensive unit that posted a league-high
and club-record 164.5 rushing yards per game in 2011. Their ground game paced the way for the
team’s first AFC West crown in six years.
In his first season with a professional team, Callahan served as a coaching assistant in 2010
with an extensive role instructing the team’s running backs over the last four games when running
back coach Eric Studesville was named the interim head coach. Under his tutelage, the backfield
posted a 1.8 yard per carry improvement in the second half of the season, the best second-half
improvement in the NFL that year.
Prior to joining the NFL coaching ranks, Callahan spent two years (2008-09) at Junipero Serra
High School in nearby San Mateo, Calif., as the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.
From 2006-07, Callahan began his career in coaching as a graduate assistant at UCLA, serving in the
Bruins’ football operations department in 2006 before expanding his role in 2007 by working with the
wide receivers, breaking down opponent game film and assisting with game preparation.
