Peyton Hillis Is Teaching Both Coaches And Players Brian Daboll's Offense For Chiefs

In a recent Coach’s Corner interview at the Kansas City Chiefs official site, running backs coach Maurice Carthon sat down to discuss his thoughts on his position heading into the 2012 season. While the return of Jamaal Charles is the main order of business, the addition of Peyton Hillis is also a major addition to the team.

Carthon spoke highly of the former Cleveland Browns running back, and said he’s been a great fit not only on the field but in the classroom as well.

“He brings a part of that toughness running inside or running outside as well, but he’s been good also in the classroom,” said Carthon. “He’s been in this offense before, so he’s teaching and helping me and some of the younger guys learn this offense. That was a great pick for us to get him and our scouting department did a great job getting us someone like that. I think he’ll help us win this year.”

Hillis rushed for 587 yards and 3 touchdowns in 2011, one year after rushing for 11 touchdowns the year before. Both Hillis and Charles are hoping for new starts after a troubled 2011 season.
