Its the season for coaching news and the rumors are flying around Bill O'Brien and Josh McDaniels who are both potential targets for the Kansas City Chiefs head coach opening. Jason LaCanfora reports that if O'Brien leaves New England that Josh McDaniels would then be a natural fit to fill the offensive coordinator job for the Patriots.
McDaniels has been mentioned as both a candidate for the head coaches position and for the offensive coordinator position on the new coaching staff. O'Brien has emerged as a strong candidate to replace Joe Paterno as head coach at Penn State.

Romeo Crennel is the current interim coach for the Chiefs and is also in the running to shed the interim label.
