The only way I can see it work is if Callahan actually translates one play at a time and converts into Coryell terminology. That is entirely way too much work on one person to do by themselves and if the protection schemes are different in any way, well now Callahan is "making up" new terminology.
Some of the OL talked about Callahan adding terminology in training camp last year.
As far as converting the actual playbook, he will have help. He probably has a lot of help from other coaches and in terms of administrative assistance.
