HOUCK RETIRES AS COACH OF THE COWBOYS AND CALLAHAN ARRIVES
Wed, 11 Jan 2012 08:34 PM EST

The Cowboys have hired previous New York Jets line coach Bill Callahan to substitute legendary offensive line coach Hudson Houck, who has made a decision to retire after twenty-nine years in the NFL, Houck confirmed Tues. night. Football spreads

The Cowboys are also engaging Cleveland Browns Jerome Henderson as their new defensive backs trainer, a league source recounted.

Houck, 69, is thought to have coached more Pro Bowl offensive linemen in league history, all the way back to his period when he started in 1983 with the L. A. Rams, including a stint with the Cowboys that began in 1993 when he was their line coach for two of their three Super Bowl championship seasons. NFL lines

“I’ve had an excellent period, been part of plenty of winning teams and I have enjoyed a lot of fantastic relationships,” Houck announced. “I plan on meeting with (Cowboys owner) Jerry Jones tomorrow to just express my thanks for what he is done for me and my folks. It’s time for me and Elsie (his wife) to enjoy the grandchildren more.”

Callahan, 55, is dropping the Jets after joining them in 2008 as assistant chief coach/offensive line. As head coach of the Oakland Raiders from 2000-02, Callahan assembled a 15-17 record and led all of them to the Super Bowl. He also coached the Nebraska Cornhuskers for 4 seasons, with a 27-22 mark.

Apart from coaching for the Rams and Cowboys (two stints), Houck as well leaded for the Seahawks, Chargers and Dolphins.

Former Rams tackle Jackie Slater credited Houck with his improvement as a Hall of Famer and Houck was really influential in the Cowboys choosing USC tackle Tyron Smith as the No. 9 total pick in the 2011 draft. Smith became the team’s best lineman and one of the top offensive rookies in the league.

Slater was one of 5 Rams linemen to enjoy 21 Pro Bowl appearances under Houck’s command. During his 1993-2001 stretch with the Cowboys, he coached six linemen who had 22 Pro Bowl selections. With the Rams, Eric Dickerson ran for a record 2,105 yards in 1994 behind Houck’s line. Emmitt Smith compiled almost his entire NFL career rushing yards record when Houck was the line coach in Dallas.

Houck played center for the USC Trojans and was an affiliate of their 1962 national championship staff.

Houck returned to his alma mater in 1976, coaching the offensive line at Southern California. During this time, he helped deliver countless Trojans to the national football league including Marvin Powell, Pat Howell, Brad Budde, Anthony Munoz, Keith Van Horne, Chris Foote, Roy Foster, Bruce Matthews, Don Mosebar and Tony Slaton, amongst others. This group helped show the way for Heisman Trophy-winning running backs Charles White and Marcus Allen, in addition to another USC great, Ricky Bell, an NFL first-round draft option in 1977.

After the Dolphins’ tragic 1-15 campaign in 2007, Houck was dismissed along with the majority of the Dolphins’ training
staff by inbound managing director Bill Parcells. Jerry Jones quickly re-hired Houck when Parcells employed Cowboys line coach Tony Sparano to serve as the Miami Dolphins ‘ head coach.
