The Detroit Lions hired Brian Callahan as the team's quarterbacks coach on Monday.

Callahan joins the coaching staff following a six-year stint with Denver, where he most recently served as offensive assistant/quarterbacks coach during the 2015 season en route to the Broncos' Super Bowl 50 win over the Carolina Panthers.

Callahan joined the Broncos' staff in 2010 and worked in a variety of roles on the offensive side of the ball, including offensive quality control coach (2011-12) and offensive assistant (2013-14). During his time in Denver, Callahan worked with one of the NFL's most consistent offenses.

Prior to entering the NFL ranks, Callahan coached two years (2008-09) at Junipero Serra High School in San Mateo, Calif., where he worked with the school's quarterbacks. His coaching career began in 2006 as a graduate assistant at UCLA, working in the Bruins' football operations department. His role expanded in 2007 as he coached the team's wide receivers, while also breaking down UCLA opponent game video.

Callahan's father, Bill, is currently the offensive line coach for the Washington Redskins.
