ONE DAY, he's being accused of having sabotaged his own team in the Super Bowl. The next, Bill Callahan apparently is about to become the Dallas Cowboys' playcaller. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said Tuesday that coach Jason Garrett may give up that duty. Speaking to reporters at Senior Bowl practices in Mobile, Ala., Jones said Callahan, the offensive-line coach, could inherit the playcalling but stopped short of saying a decision had been made. Garrett kept calling plays after he was promoted from offensive coordinator to head coach when Wade Phillips was fired during the 2010 season.

Eagles coach Ray Rhodes added two accomplished assistants to his staff yesterday when he signed Bill Callahan, 38, as offensive line coach and Dick Jamieson, 57, to handle the team's running backs. Dipping into the collegiate ranks, Rhodes acquired Callahan from the University of Wisconsin and got Jamieson, a former NFL assistant coach with the St. Louis Cardinals, from Rutgers. "Bill and Dick give us a great mix of youth and experience," Rhodes said. "Bill's a young guy with teacher written all over him. He's put together a super track record at Wisconsin, and I'm sure he'll do the same for us. "Dick has had experience at all levels, and, more importantly, he's had success at the NFL level, where he helped bring along backs like Ottis Anderson and Stump Mitchell - guys who gave the Cardinals a solid one-two punch in the backfield.

Bill Callahan went from the Super Bowl to the unemployment line in less than a year. The Oakland Raiders announced Callahan's firing yesterday, just one season after he took the team within a victory of an NFL championship as a rookie head coach. The team had told Callahan a day earlier. He asked to delay the announcement because his son Brian's college team, UCLA, played in a bowl game Tuesday night. Openly criticized by his players, Callahan went 15-17 overall and 4-12 this season, the Raiders' worst record since 1997 and the biggest drop by a Super Bowl team.

Charles Woodson said the Oakland Raiders are "falling apart" because coach Bill Callahan is too headstrong and not as good a communicator as predecessor Jon Gruden. "He just has to bend a little bit and stop being so stubborn as a person," the defensive back said after the Raiders fell to 2-6 yesterday after a 23-13 loss to Detroit. "Everybody can change a little something. You don't know everything. Nobody does. When people on your team, coming from different angles, are trying to help you as a coach, you should take that.

The Oakland Raiders promoted offensive coordinator Bill Callahan to head coach last night, three weeks after Jon Gruden left to coach Tampa Bay. Callahan spent four seasons as Gruden's offensive coordinator with the Raiders, and also worked with Gruden as the Eagles' offensive line coach from 1995-97. Noteworthy Hall of Fame running back Jim Brown will begin serving a 180-day misdemeanor jail term today in Los Angeles following a judge's decision to push the sentence back a day. Brown was sentenced to jail in January 2000 for refusing court-ordered counseling and community service for vandalizing his wife's car in 1999.

New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton returned to work Wednesday following a nearly yearlong suspension for his role in the team's bounty program. "We're at a point where it's time for closure. It's time for us as a team, it's time for us as a league, to take this next step forward," Payton said. Goodell lifted Payton's suspension Tuesday, nearly two weeks earlier than expected. Payton said he has not spoken to former defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, who remains suspended indefinitely, and "I have no interest in talking to Gregg.

The next Nebraska coach doesn't necessarily have to have ties to the school, but Tom Osborne says the Cornhuskers' next leader must have an understanding of the program's unique culture and history. Somebody such as former Nebraska quarterback and Buffalo coach Turner Gill would qualify. Buffalo athletic director Warde Manuel gave permission to Osborne, Nebraska's interim athletic director, to speak with Gill, the Buffalo News reported yesterday. One of the criticisms of Bill Callahan, who was fired Saturday, was that he didn't understand or appreciate the fans' passion and high expectations.

There may still be a good deal of mystery as to why Oakland Raiders all-pro center Barret Robbins missed the Super Bowl. As for his future with the team, a sympathetic coach, Bill Callahan, hinted at the possibility of a Robbins return yesterday. In making his first public comments on the incidents that led him to bar Robbins from the team hotel and the title game, Callahan was asked if the player is still a Raider. "Absolutely," Callahan said, adding there's a "viable" chance Robbins will play again for the team.

Bill Callahan will not be back as coach of the Oakland Raiders next season after the team declined to pick up the first of two option years on Callahan's contract yesterday, a person in the team's front office told the Contra Costa Times. Callahan met with managing general partner Al Davis and senior assistant Bruce Allen and the sides decided to part ways, the source said. The Raiders (4-12) are expected to announce their decision as early as today, the source said. Raiders chief executive Amy Trask told the Associated Press that Callahan had requested that the team not make an announcement yesterday for what she said were "personal and family reasons.

The Eagles have lost their college scouting director to another NFL team, and other moves in the Birds' front office could be on the way. Joe Banner, the club's senior executive vice president, said last night that John Wooten had accepted a front-office job with the Baltimore Ravens. Wooten, 61, was head of the Eagles' college scouting department for the last five seasons. He said last week that he was being courted by the Ravens, who hoped to improve their college scouting.

SATURDAY'S PLAYOFF elimination game against Washington will be the first the Eagles have played in the Chip Kelly era without Bennie Logan as a force on the defensive line. Backup Beau Allen and defensive end Cedric Thornton will try to bridge a significant gap in a struggling defense, probably for more than just this one game. "Bennie's one of my best friends. I love him. He said he'll be out a couple weeks. Hopefully, we'll be in the playoffs, he'll come back," Thornton said Wednesday.

THE DALLAS Cowboys hired Bill Callahan as their offensive-line coach yesterday and added a surprise twist, listing him as offensive coordinator. Jason Garrett came to Dallas as offensive coordinator in 2007 and held on to that position after he became head coach midway through the 2010 season. There was no indication of how Callahan having that title would change, if any, Garrett calling plays or other coordinator duties. Dallas also hired Jerome Henderson as its secondary coach.

THE FALLOUT from the New York Jets' failure to make the playoffs is in full swing, with coaches leaving, some players taking shots at quarterback Mark Sanchez and others defending him. In fewer than 24 hours, the coaching staff was shaken up with offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer walking away, former Dolphins coach Tony Sparano replacing him, and a few assistants saying they won't be back. Now the latest controversy involves the shaky status of Sanchez. Some players say Sanchez lacks the work ethic and leadership skills to ever lead the Jets to the Super Bowl.

OAKLAND fired coach Hue Jackson yesterday after just one season at the helm in the first major move since Reggie McKenzie was hired as general manager. The decision to get rid of Jackson came 4 days after the team announced the hiring of McKenzie as the team's first general manager since the death of longtime owner Al Davis in October. McKenzie was formally introduced yesterday. The move marks a rapid fall for Jackson, who was in charge of personnel decisions and coaching after Davis died of heart failure on Oct. 8. Jackson joined the Raiders as offensive coordinator in 2010 under head coach Tom Cable and engineered a dramatic improvement as Oakland more than doubled its point total and improved to 8-8. That helped him get the job when Davis decided not to retain Cable.

Bill Callahan walked on stage at Johnny Brenda's on Saturday in a pin-striped, blue and white seersucker suit, looking like a traveling troubadour, or perhaps as if he'd just stepped out from behind an antique ice cream counter. The songs on his new album, Apocalypse , the fourth released under his own name after more than a decade recording (often by himself) as Smog, form a kind of eccentric travelogue, a record of a journey that goes nowhere and everywhere. Callahan begins and ends the album by singing from the perspective of a cattle drover, finally concluding, on "One Fine Morning," "I am a part of the road - the hardest part.

Just as video killed the radio star a quarter century ago, downloading is murdering the record store today. Stores large and small have closed or downsized: Tower is long gone; the music department at Borders seems eviscerated. That's the doom and gloom, but radio is still a part of stardom, and many independent record stores are hanging in there as vital parts of the music community. Saturday, many of those stores celebrate their existence on the second annual Record Store Day. In Philly, the unofficial start of the event is an in-store performance tonight by Smog's Bill Callahan at AKA Music on Second Street.

If Nebraska interim athletic director Tom Osborne wants Bill Callahan out as football coach, he'll probably have to fire him. Callahan said yesterday he would not resign before the season ends, even if he were offered a buyout worth more than he is entitled to by his contract. "That term 'resignation' is not in our vocabulary," Callahan said. The Huskers (4-6, 1-5 Big 12) go into Saturday's final home game against Kansas State on their first five-game losing streak since 1958.
