Kansas City Chiefs Name Former Miami Dolphins' Brian Daboll As Offensive Coordinator

The Kansas City Chiefs name Brian Daboll as their new offensive coordinator.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the Kansas City Chiefs will hire former Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to same position. Daboll has a history with Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel from their time together in New England.

Daboll got his start as a graduate assistant under Nick Saban at Michigan State from 1998-1999. After a couple of years he was hired by the New England Patriots where he began as a defensive assistant for two years and then as a wide receivers coach for five years. It was there that he worked with Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel, who was the defensive coordinator at the time. They won three Super Bowls in New England together before Daboll left for the New York Jets to be their quarterbacks coach.

After two years in New York Daboll left to be the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns. While running the offense in Cleveland, the Browns finished 32nd in total offense under Daboll in 2009 and then 29th in 2010. Last year for the Miami Dolphins Daboll helped their offense finish 22nd in the NFL.

Daboll joins a Chiefs team that struggled to score points for most of the season after injuries to Tony Moeaki, Jamaal Charles and Matt Cassel derailed the offense during the season.
