Chiefs Training Camp: Peyton Hillis Speaks Highly Of Brian Daboll

There's no doubt that the biggest jump needed that the Kansas City Chiefs need to make is on the offensive side of the ball this season. The defense is already a very solid unit with the potential to become great now that Eric Berry is back, but the offense was stagnant last season and that's where the bulk of the roster moves were made. Now they'll have to show their stuff under new offensive Brian Daboll.

Daboll has been with the Browns and Dolphins for the last two seasons, and those locations likely won't inspire anyone's confidence given the overall record. But Daboll's offense is something that can come on once he realizes how to best utilize players -- Chiefs fans should remember well the loss to Miami just last season. New running back Peyton Hillis, who played under Daboll in 2010, is definitely a fan.

"Coach Daboll, since I've known him, he's very smart," said Hillis from training camp Sunday. "He knows how to create mismatches and stuff like that and he's always done a great job. He's a big players' coach. We always know he is going to put us in the right position.

"I think he gets the most out of a lot of guys," he continues When I see him travel around from New England to Cleveland to Miami, I see he got a lot out of a lot of players. That's just because he's such a smart coach and knows how to connect with players."

Hillis says it was partly Daboll's presence that gave him confidence to sign with the Chiefs and make it a good situation for him.

"To tell you the truth, I think that I'm on a very good team. With Coach [Brian] Daboll here from Cleveland and having a complementary back in Jamaal Charles - he's one of the best backs in the league - I feel like it will be good for me. I feel it will be good to have a tandem, somewhere I can fit in and don't have to carry the load. I'm looking at this as a new beginning and a new place where I can start."
