Bill #*@#*$# Callahan. It looks like Mangenius has found a sure fire way to make the Jets worse. There are times when the "old boys network" approaches total stupidity.

Sometimes it works. Bill is not a good head coach but may do well as an assistant.

He shouldnt be coachign at all anywhere! I dont even think he's good enough to be an assistant coach for a Jv high school team! He's a low-life loser who cant lead his team to win football games!

Good for him. I guess he can rip off the jet's by being over paid. He ruined Husker football. If he would have kept Pelini when he interviewed for the defensive corrdinator job, he may still have been able to keep his job. Instead, he brought along his pal Cosgrove that dismantled the "black shirt" defense. Better there than here.
Good ridence.

Bill "it's about time you leave college football" Callahan. Why he lasted that long in Nebraska is beyond me. I hope they reminded him in the interview what the word TEAM means. For you Jets fans...don't get to excited...you may only have 3 wins next season. Don't spend all the severence money in one place Bill and don't forget Pederson at Christmas. He deserves some of your loot.

Callahan wasn't bad for us as OC. Maybe he can help that moribund franchise.
