He assisted with an offensive unit in 2013 that set the NFL single-season record for points scored (606) and touchdown passes (55) en route to the team’s third consecutive AFC West title and an appearance in Super Bowl XLVIII. Quarterback Peyton Manning earned his fifth Most Valuable Player Award as the Broncos led the league in yards per game (457.3).

In 2012, the Broncos ranked fourth in the NFL in total offense (397.9 ypg) and topped the 30-point mark in a league-high 11 contests.

Prior to Manning’s arrival in Denver, Callahan helped coach an offensive unit that led the NFL with a club-record 164.5 rushing yards per game in 2011 while the Broncos won their 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 at Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, Calif. Coaching quarterbacks for the school 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 and was teammates with several future NFL players. He was a two-year letterwinner as a quarterback who shared in De La Salle’s No. 1 national ranking from USA Today.

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. He is married to a former Denver Broncos cheerleader, Allyson.
