Brian Callahan
Offensive Assistant
College:
UCLA
Experience:
4

Brian Callahan enters his fourth season on the Denver Broncos’ coaching staff in 2013, currently serving as an offensive assistant. He was originally hired by the team on Feb. 22, 2010.

Callahan has six years of coaching experience, including two seasons at UCLA following his playing career at the school as a quarterback.

He was part of the Broncos’ offensive staff in 2012 that ranked fourth in the NFL with 397.9 yards per game and topped the 30-point mark in a league-high 11 contests. Denver’s four offensive Pro Bowlers—guard Zane Beadles, tackle Ryan Clady, quarterback Peyton Manning and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas—represented the most selections on that side of the ball since the club’s 1998 Super Bowl squad.

He was part of the Broncos’ offensive staff in 2012 that ranked fourth in the NFL with 397.9 yards per game and topped the 30-point mark in a league-high 11 contests. Denver’s four offensive Pro Bowlers—guard Zane Beadles, tackle Ryan Clady, quarterback Peyton Manning and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas—represented the most selections on that side of the ball since the club’s 1998 Super Bowl squad.

In 2011, Callahan helped coach an offensive unit that led the NFL with a cub-record 164.5 rushing yards per game while Denver won its first AFC West title in six seasons.

Callahan had an extensive role instructing the team’s running backs during the last four games of the 2010 campaign when Running Backs Coach Eric Studesville was named interim head coach. His guidance helped Denver’s running game post the NFL’s largest second-half improvement in yards per carry (1.8) over the last eight games of the season.

He spent the previous two years coaching at Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, Calif., where he also held additional responsibilities as an assistant in its Academic Resource Center. Working as its offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach in 2009, he instructed the West Catholic Athletic League’s first-ranked receiver, second-ranked rusher and fourth-ranked passer.

Coaching quarterbacks for Junipero Serra in 2008, Callahan tutored San Mateo County and WCAL Player of the Year Cody Jackson, who earned a scholarship to play at Army after leading the conference in completions, passing yards and touchdowns that season.

Callahan began his coaching career at UCLA in 2006 as a graduate assistant in the Bruins’ football operations department and also helped coach the defense. In 2007, he worked with the team’s wide receivers and was responsible for breaking down UCLA opponent game video, aiding coaches with game preparation, directing the defensive scout team and breaking down opponents’ special teams units.

A former walk-on quarterback at UCLA who earned a scholarship, Callahan appeared in all 13 games as a holder on the field goal and extra point units for the Bruins as a senior. He received a bachelor’s degree in sociology from UCLA in 2006 before earning a master’s degree in education from the school in 2008.

During his prep career at De La Salle High School in Concord, Calif., Callahan was part of the school’s national-record 151-game winning streak. He was a two-year letterwinner as a quarterback who shared in De La Salle’s No. 1 national ranking from USA Today.

At De La Salle, he played with several future NFL players, including Broncos linebacker D.J. Williams and Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew.

Born on June 10, 1984, in Champaign, Ill., Callahan served as a co-chairman of the Bruin Athletic Council for two years and played on the UCLA club ice hockey team following his senior year of football. His father, Bill, is the offensive coordinator and offensive line coach for the Dallas Cowboys and has served as the head coach for the Oakland Raiders and the University of Nebraska.
