The search for the next head coach of the Indianapolis Colts has slugged right along as we inch closer to announcements on which candidates will receive a second interview. One name that is deserving of a formal conversation is Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Brian Callahan.
Callahan, who the Colts completed an interview with last week, has helped head coach Zac Taylor in guiding the Bengals to their second consecutive AFC Championship game.

He’s also played a part in the development of star QB Joe Burrow who has ascended into the conversation as one of the best players at the position in the league.
