Bill Callahan Hired As Assistant Head Coach By Jets

Former Nebraska head coach Bill Callahan has been hired as assistant head coach/offense by the New York Jets.

It's a return to the NFL for the 51-year-old Callahan, who coached the Oakland Raiders to the 2002 AFC championship game before losing to Tampa Bay in the Super Bowl.

Callahan had a 27-and-22 record in four seasons at Nebraska. He was fired after a 5-and-7 season by former Cornhuskers coach Tom Osborne, who returned to the school as interim athletic director.

Callahan will work primarily with the Jets' offensive line.
