Kansas City Chiefs Name Tom McMahon Special Teams Coach

The Kansas City Chiefs are finalizing their last pieces to their coaching staff puzzle, as they have announced on Monday of their hiring of Tom McMahon to serve as the club’s special teams coach. McMahon joins the Chiefs after a three years of services for the St. Louis Rams working as their special teams coordinator.

Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel on the hire of McMahon:

"I am pleased to add Tom to our staff," said Head Coach Romeo Crennel. "He is a diligent worker and passionate coach. It is a great addition for us."

McMahon on the opportunity to join Crennel's staff on Monday:

"I'm very blessed to have the opportunity to come to Kansas City and be a part of Romeo's staff," McMahon said. "Romeo and I have a shared vision of what it takes to win and I'm excited to get started."

McMahon’s previous prized work was his tutelage of the Rams' primary punt returner, Danny Amendola. Amendola led the NFL with 12 returns of 20-plus yards in 2009 and 2010 combined before his injury-ravaged season of 2011.
