Early this off-season, the Jets hired Bill Callahan as assistant head coach. New York Times reporter Greg Bishop attempted to interview him at the combine, but was turned down. The reporter was told, by a team official, that the coach needed media training. For the latest issue of the Sporting News, Callahan was finally allowed to speak.
And based on this quote, the media training was clearly successful.
"I've only been here three months," says Callahan, whose official title is assistant head coach/offense. "We're just trying to put one foot in front of the other right now. It's been a pretty seamless transition because we've been working in the offseason program. … But it's too early to say anything about where we're at. We have a long ways to go."
