Bill Muir Will Reportedly Be Chiefs Next Offensive Coordinator

New, 1 comment

The Kansas City Chiefs have made their choice for offensive coordinator, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen, and the man is Bill Muir, who is currently the Chiefs offensive line coach. Mortensen reports the Chiefs are expected to make the promotion official.

The Chiefs were expected to be looking for someone who has a strong history in the passing game, which Muir does not. His experience is in the running game.

We're guessing here but I imagine this means Haley will be calling plays. That's been the thinking for a while and Muir's hiring seems to strengthen that idea. 

Muir's experience with Haley and GM Scott Pioli began in the late 1990s when all three were with the New York Jets. Muir moved onto the Tampa Bay Buccaneers from 2002-2008 as offensive coordinator/offensive line coach with Jon Gruden. He was fired after the 2008 season and was one of the first hires Haley made in Kansas City after being named head coach.
