He helped guide Lehigh to three consecutive league championship game appearances (2012-14), back-to-back Patriot League Championships as well as berths in the NCAA Tournament in 2012 and 2013. From 2007-11, he served as the second assistant under head coach Kevin Cassese. His primary duties with the Mountain Hawks were as defensive coordinator, including overseeing the goalkeepers. 

Before arriving at Lehigh, Callahan enjoyed a successful four-year career at Stony Brook, serving as captain of the Seawolves and garnering Second-Team All-America East laurels as a goaltender. He was an All-Rookie Team selection in 2004, as well as an STX/USILA All-American after leading the nation in save percentage and goals against average.

Off the field, Callahan was involved in a number of activities, including the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, the Inter-Collegiate Athletic Board and he was selected by the NCAA to represent Stony Brook at the 2005 NCAA Leadership Conference in Orlando, Florida.

Callahan earned his bachelor's degree in health care management in 2007 and later got his master's degree in education from Lehigh.
