Chiefs, Raiders Were Among Teams Interested In Mike Sherman Before Dolphins Hired Him

The Kansas City Chiefs still have not filled their offensive coordinator position, and fans are wondering when the day will finally arrive with even a hint of news. Unfortunately, the only news coming through comes after the fact, with the word dropped by Dan Pompei recently that the Chiefs were interested in now-Dolphins OC Mike Sherman. The former Texas A&M head coach was formerly with the Green Bay Packers and Pompei said the Chiefs were just one of several teams interested in Sherman’s services.

Pompei writes, “The Dolphins are fortunate to have landed Mike Sherman as their offensive coordinator. Sherman could have had a number of jobs, as teams that were interested in him included the Browns, Chiefs and Raiders. Sherman’s relationship with Dolphins head coach Joe Philbin, and the fact he will have a say in some of the other assistants, steered him to Miami.”

Word is that Brian Daboll and Jim Zorn are among other possibilities.
