        Callaway spent five seasons at Samford, where he served as the Bulldogs’ offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach from 2017-19 and the wide receivers coach from 2015-16.

        Prior to Samford, Callaway spent two seasons at Murray State, where he worked with the wide receivers, while also serving as the recruiting coordinator.

          Going over his bio, he was a quality control support staff member with the Giants. He was a QB, WR and OC as well as a defensive analyst at Bama and UGA, but nothing on here about him ever coaching TE.

          The last TE coach – Peagler – had never coached TE either.
