Possible Charlie Weis Replacements Include Browns, Cardinals Coaching Staffs

We know now that Charlie Weis is leaving the Kansas City Chiefs to assume the offensive coordinator position at the University of Florida. He will be with the Chiefs throughout the rest of the playoffs so, in the short-term, nothing really changes. In the long-term, though, they need to find a Weis replacement.

There are names already popping up. Here are the names being passed around in the media -- Nick Sirianni, Mo Carthon, Brian Daboll, Mike MIler and Greg Olson.

Sirianni is the Chiefs offensive assistant and works closely with Matt Cassel. Close enough to the point where some in the organization feel Sirianni deserves a chunk of the credit for Cassel's success, according to Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. 

Carthon is the Chiefs assistant head coach and a close friend to Todd Haley. Carthon doesn't specialize in quarterbacks so I'm not sure he would be on the top of the list. Plus, moving him to coordinator would potentially weaken two coaching spots.

Daboll is the offensive coordinator with the Cleveland Browns and FOXSports.com reported he is someone to keep an eye on. He worked with the receivers in New England for a couple years while Weis was there.

Miller is the passing game coordinator in Arizona. His name comes up obviously because of his familiarity with Haley in Arizona.

Olson is the Bucs quarterbacks coach. He worked with Haley in Chicago and he was considered a candidate back in 2009 when Haley was first hired.
