For the rumor category..

In Mort's chat this morning he mentioned that he thinks Alex Gibbs will be hired by KC to install the zone blocking scheme.

"David (Overland Park, KS): Who do you think fills the OC role on the Chiefs now that Solari has been let go? I remember reading that they're going to begin utilizing the Denver zone blocking scheme. Think it'll be someone from there?

Chris Mortensen: (11:47 AM ET ) Here's what I have heard and I'll share it for the first time: Herm Edwards wants to bring in Alex Gibbs to install that zone-blocking scheme. That's probably what will happen."

Agreed. I would just add, that Sapp would need to be signed at or near the vet minimum as well, but spot on regarding the players to keep and let go. Grigsby needs to be pushed out the door or earn the job, no more fan favorite crap. I consider him a long-shot to make the team, but I'd give him a shot. You either perform or you look for work elsewhere.

The Kansas City Chiefs are searching for a new offensive coordinator, and it could be Bill Callahan. Callahan is rumored to be on the Chiefs short-list of candidates, after previous offensive coordinator Mike Solari is fired. Solari was one of 4 KC assistants let go on Wednesday.

While Callahan's career took a recent nose-dive in the college ranks at Nebraska, he has a proven track record in the NFL. Callahan led the Oakland Raiders to Super Bowl XXXVII. At the time, he was regarded as one of the top offensive minds in the league.

Other Chiefs offensive coordinator candidates include Brian Billick, Mike Martz, and Mike Shula, among others.

Are you confusing journalism with ethics?

The facts are, as reported on ESPN that those guys are "available" so in essence they are available for consideration.

As a matter of fact, there are at least 5 guys I've heard of that are interested in the job, none of which I'd give any credible chance of even getting a chance to put their name in the paper as someone being considered.

IMO there are probably 50,000 Chiefs fans, at a minimum, that can do a better job than the HC we currently have on the payroll.

Sorry, I see a difference between saying that a coach is available for consideration, and saying that the team IS in fact considering them.

To say that the candidates include Billick, Martz and Shula is misleading, because they are only candidates if the Chiefs are interested, which in Martz case, was made clear he is not.

Word choice goes a long way.

They basically want in on the action, so they'll throw any name they can in the ring to make news.

-- Chiefs Could be Interested in Martz --
Wed Jan 2, 2008 --from FFMastermind.com

NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports the Kansas City Chiefs, who fired OC Mike Solari, might take a run at former Lions OC Mike Martz, who wants to coach next season. But if Martz cannot land the right job, he does have a contract with one year remaining on it that Detroit would be obligated to pay.


-- 49ers Unlikely to Hire Martz --
Wed Jan 2, 2008 --from FFMastermind.com

ESPN's John Clayton reports the San Francisco 49ers are unlikely to hire former Lions OC Mike Martz to fill their offensive coordinator opening.


This may have CP trying to pick the OC over Herm written all over it if true. With Herm firing all the DV/Coryell coaches he will want no part of Martz, not to mention being friends and coaching on the staff with dungy together with Rod Marinelli, martz's former boss.

I don't know that the compensation has been made official for Bennett or Sims. Someone please correct if this is incorrect.

We have our own picks in 1-7, plus the following extras, IIRC:

R5- Green trade

R7- Tynes trade

Bennett and Sims compensation TBD. We'll receive a pick in 2008 AND 2009 for Bennett.

11 picks overall.

I don't have info to the contrary, but I do question some of those.

Of course, we have all of our usual 7. Obviously, we have a 5th for Trent.

But Tynes was never announced to be a 7 specifically, but a "possible future draft pick." Same with Sims. I assume they're both 7s, but there's a chance Sims is a 7th in 2009, and Tynes could even be a 6.

Michael Bennett was for "future considerations in 2008 and 2009," and I have no flippin' clue what that means because the Chiefs shroud everything possible in secrecy.

So we could have as few as 9 (7 + Green + Tynes) and as many as 11 or more... (7 + Green + Tynes + Sims + Bennett[?])

I swear I saw a report that the compensation for Tynes had been agreed to as a R7.

As I pointed out, I've heard nothing on Sims.

Everyone has been talking about having 10 picks, and I've taken it as gospel because I thought that's where we stood, plus definite addition of a pick for Bennett and a possible 2008 for Sims.

I'll keep looking until someone finds something one way or the other.

The Tampa Bay Tribune reports Buccaneers quarterbacks coach Paul Hackett is a candidate to become Kansas City's offensive coordinator, according to a report in the Kansas City Star. The Chiefs fired four assistant coaches, including OC Mike Solari, on Wednesday, but Hackett declined to talk after Thursday's practice. "The only focus I have right now is to beat the Giants. After that, I'll be happy to talk," said Hackett, who was the Chiefs' offensive coordinator from 1993-97 and served as Kansas City HC Herm Edwards' offensive coordinator when Edwards was head coach of the Jets.

Was Callahan even a good OC? besides dink and dunk O

If it's true that he has become the leading candidate in Herman ****ing Edwards search for an OC, then I 'd have to say no.

Seriously though, it's really difficult to evaluate Callahan as an OC, since that dink and dunk offense was really Jon Gruden's.

But the real question is, given that Callahan is a West Coast Offense coordinator, how the hell does a strong armed QB fit that system?

Nick should shoot himself down.

It's a direct quote from Hackett. You would think he would know if the Chiefs were interested or not.
Thanks for posting it, you shouldn't be blasted for doing so, so I'm sorry if I came off that way. I just really don't believe that Carl would let Hackett come back and Gunther wasn't a fan of his either. Plus the Hackett quote to me says that he would be interested if they contacted him, not that they have contacted him. Toss in the fact that the Chiefs wouldn't be able to contact him until after they are out of the playoff's because they don't have a first week bye, and I'll take it that they haven't.

Well, you have to keep in mind that if he was any good as a head coach he wouldn't even be an option as an OC.

Most people just remember Gailey as an underperforming HC with Dallas, but he has a great track record as an OC in the NFL. He's had top 10-15 offenses at every stop as an OC and has helped some poor QBs look like true winners (Kordell Stewart, Jay Fiedler, Mike Tomczak, etc). Also, the best part is that he seems to be flexible with his "system"; he doesn't stuff a square peg into a round hole. His offensive style at Pittsburgh, Miami, and Dallas have all been slightly different, which is a great sign IMO.

Finally, he has a history with Alex Gibbs in Denver, so he should be comfortable implementing the ZBS.

Wasnt Chan Gailey in Dallas before also,or am I thinking of someone else.
He's got the experience. From WIKIPEDIA

Troy State, Air Force, Troy
Gailey stayed with Florida as a graduate assistant for two years before taking his first actual coaching job as the secondary coach for Troy State University in Alabama. After two seasons there, he spent four seasons with the Air Force Academy, including two as defensive coordinator under head coach Ken Hatfield.[3] In 1983, he took over the head coaching duties at Troy, where he led the Trojans to a 12-1 record in 1984 en route to the Division II championship.

Professional leagues

He moved up to the NFL ranks the next year, when the Denver Broncos signed him as a defensive assistant and special teams coach. The team made three Super Bowl appearances during his six-year tenure. He then became the head coach of the Birmingham Fire of the World League of American Football, where the team made the playoffs both years he was coach. After a one-year stint as head coach at Samford University, he returned to the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers. He started off as coach for the wide receivers, then moved up to offensive coordinator for the 1996 and 1997 NFL seasons. Gailey was then hired to take over a struggling Dallas Cowboys squad, one that had faltered under Barry Switzer during his last year. Gailey's Cowboys won the NFC East in 1998, and made the playoffs under his two years at the reins, although they failed to win a playoff game. He then returned to the offensive coordinator role, this time with the Miami Dolphins.

Georgia Tech
Gailey was hired by the Yellow Jackets in 2002 to replace George O'Leary who left to become Head Coach at the University of Notre Dame, and was resigned in 2007.[6] In his first five years at Georgia Tech, he had compiled a 37-27 record. Georgia Tech went to bowl games each year under Gailey, and won two: the 2003 Humanitarian Bowl (a 52-10 win over the University of Tulsa), and the 2004 Champs Sports Bowl (a 51-14 victory over Syracuse University). However, in seven seasons at the helm, Gailey never defeated Tech's biggest rival, the University of Georgia, never won the ACC, never went to a BCS bowl, never lost fewer than 5 games, and never finished in the top 25. The 2006 season was his most successful at Georgia Tech winning the ACC Coastal Division, but losing to Wake Forest in the ACC championship game.

Gailey's name was mentioned for both the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins head coaching jobs following the 2006 season, two teams for which he was offensive coordinator.[8] Gailey got neither job. On January 19, 2007 Gailey announced he would return to Georgia Tech.[9]
After a 7-5 2007 regular season and losing for the sixth straight year to the Georgia Bulldogs football team, it was announced on November 26, 2007 that Gailey has been dismissed and will have his $1 million/year contract bought out

Chan Gailey, along with Alex Gibbs, would be a pretty good pair. If we are going the WCO route, those two together would be about as good as we could hope for. Problem is, I am not real excited to be returning to the WCO. The NFL adapted to the innovations of the WCO, and now I think there is just too much speed on defenses for the WCO to be a championship-caliber offense.

He may not be starting material but he's far from stinkola. There have been times where he has made standout plays when nobody else was around.

I can see a scenario where a high draft choice and the further development of McBride and Tyler could force him off the team but I'm not convinced that he's reached his maximum potential yet, either. Given the right scheme and the decent coaching he could very easily turn out to be another John Bronwing-type who fills in sufficiently where ever and whenever needed.

So umm, did I miss something? Wasn't Clark OWNER of the Chiefs suppose to speak? Wasn't he suppose to talk to us about the state of the franchise? I looked for a thread but did not find one. Very disapointed if Clark doesn't say something maybe a "sorry" at least. My view on this is that he doesn't care or Carl Peterson has him in some compermizing photos. I think we Chiefs fans deserve to hear from Clark and hear him say that he wants to win a Championship and would take the necessary steps to achieve that goal.

Davis would be a solid pickup and a good #3 WR as well.

Makes me wonder if we have a replacement next week if they already decided who it is and thats why Herm is on ESPN now.


We almost drafted Andre Davis instead of Eddie Freeman. I remember DV talking about it on the post-draft interview. I wanted us to get him badly, but I have to admit I also wanted Freeman. Davis was an academic all american, if I recall correctly. Bright kid with blazing speed, seems like he got hurt in Cleveland his second or third year.

Looks like Gailey gets a second interview.

http://www.kansascity.com/sports/chiefs/story/446550.html

Chan Gailey was back in Kansas City on Tuesday for a second interview for the Chiefs’ vacant offensive coordinator’s position.

He is the only one of the candidates to have a second face-to-face interview with coach Herm Edwards, though Edwards may visit again with others he’s already spoken with before making a decision.

Gailey, 56, was recently fired after six seasons as head coach at Georgia Tech. Previously, Gailey had been the head coach for the Cowboys and coordinated offenses for the Broncos, Steelers and Dolphins.

The other candidates who have been publicly named are Texas-El Paso offensive coordinator Eric Price, former New York Giants coach Jim Fassel and Jacksonville quarterbacks coach Mike Shula.

The Broncos still are interested in former UCLA head coach and Colorado assistant Karl Dorrell, but if he is brought in, it likely would be as a receivers coach.

Dorrell was in Kansas City on Thursday night and may be hired as the Chiefs' receivers coach. Dorrell also interviewed in Miami this week. If Dorrell goes elsewhere, Denver might not hire a receivers coach. Dorrell was Denver's receivers coach before going to UCLA.

The Chiefs also hired Bob Bicknell as their offensive-line coach. Bicknell, the son of former Boston College coach Jack, was the Chiefs’ assistant offensive-line coach last season. He also has coached offensive line in college at Temple and in NFL Europe.

Karl Dorrell is the leading candidate to be wide-receivers coach, and Curtis Modkins is their top choice as running-backs coach. Dorrell was head coach at UCLA before being fired last fall and previously coached wide receivers for the Broncos. Modkins was on Gailey’s staff at Georgia Tech and is the offensive coordinator at Colorado State.

That is good news IMO!! Need to hear some possitives.

One thing that went for Big Ben Rothleshamburger(sp) is he had a good ground game and the coaches gave him high % throws to make. They weren't so predictable either with trick plays too.

I think Chan Gailey is going to do fine and we should get results this year imo.

I'm beginning to feel very good about the Gailey hiring. I just get the feeling that he can chew gum and walk at the same time. That he's not tied to some ideology. That he is capable of doing one of the most important things that coaches are supposed to be able to do; put players in situations that take advantage of their ability.

Imagine if he is able to do this with not only LJ, but also with Brody and D-Bowe. I'm thinking that Gailey will also help in the draft. Herm and Kuharich have done pretty well on their own but I also get the feeling that Gailey's experience will be helpful here, too.

Speaking of the draft, I'd love to know why everybody keeps saying that we have 10 picks when reports based on actual events in real time gave us 11.

1. It was reported that we received a 5th for Green. (by the way, how ironic was it, that after we quibbled for so long between a 4th and a 5th, that we ended up settling for a 5th but it was the equivalent of the last pick in the 4th round?).

2. It was reported that we received a late round pick for Tynes (if he made the other team).

3. It was reported that we received a late round pick for Sims (if he made the other team).

4. It was reported that we received a late round pick in '08 and a late round pick in '09 for Bennett.

That's four late round picks for Green, Tynes, Sims, and Bennett. What's going on? I've been looking for answers but I have yet been able to find someone who can show me where my math is wrong.

No. Last season, Adalius Thomas got that money from the Pats, when he had similar career stats to Jared Allen. Then Allen leads the NFL in sacks. No way I take that if i'm allen. I ask for more money than Dwight Freeney. Maybe I take Freeney money.

Allen wants to be a 49er:
http://49ers.pressdemocrat.com/default.asp?item=738982

The top free agent in the NFL wants to play for the 49ers.
Defensive end Jared Allen, who is scheduled for unrestricted free agency with the Kansas City Chiefs, attended Los Gatos High. He grew up a Raiders fan, but he prefers to play for the 49ers.
"Jared would welcome the opportunity to play in front of his hometown crowd," said Ken Harris, Allen's agent. "His family is up north. I have no doubt there is a high level of interest in playing (for the 49ers)."
Allen made similar comments yesterday to radio hosts Lamont and Tonelli of 107.7 The Bone, telling them he'd like to play for the 49ers.
However, a lot of pieces would have to fall into place for him to end up with the 49ers. After all, the Chiefs are expected to tag Allen as their franchise player with a tender of $8.9 million. That means any team wishing to sign Allen would have to cough up two first-round draft picks. The Chiefs could also make him an "exclusive" franchise player for a higher price and wipe out his ability to negotiate with other teams.
"It's the worst-kept secret in the NFL that the Chiefs are going to franchise him," Harris said. "But Jared has already said that if he plays on the franchise tender, he will never do a long-term deal with them."
Allen is regarded as one of the NFL's premier defenders. He recorded a league-high 15.5 sacks last season, led the league in passes batted down at the line of scrimmage and ranked at the top of the league in solo tackles from defensive ends.
If the Chiefs fail to sign Allen to a long-term contract by July 15, they could retain him for two seasons with back-to-back franchise tenders for a combined cost of more than $20 million.
Allen was a fourth-round pick from Idaho State who was selected more for his ability as a long-snapper. However, he quickly developed into a dangerous defender. He has 43 sacks in four seasons.

"But Jared has already said that if he plays on the franchise tender, he will never do a long-term deal with them."He also said last season he would not show up to OTA's without a long term contract but was at every one of them.

NFL Network's Adam Schefter says the Seahawks are "flirting" with allowing Marcus Trufant hit the open market.
While that decision is somewhat bizarre, the reasoning behind it is even crazier. Schefter indicates that the team may prefer to use the franchise tag on kicker Josh Brown. If Trufant hits the open market, he'll become one of the richest defenders in the league.

I wish these mods would do this the way the last guy did. At least he was diligent enough to remove the rumors about coaches that have been HIRED.

Well, if that last guy didn't take a break from his duties, we could have ourselves a good thread again this year, but nooooo - he decided he needed to make a macrame hanging pot holder instead....

I just listened to herms countdown to kickoff and he mentions that Eric Price will also coach the QBs some.

I left them there so people could look back in the future saying, "We brought in X, he is doing a lot better job in Y than Z is doing here",and it gives a picture of how things played out as well...

Why? Huard looked even better than last season and it was obvious to everyone how much Croyle improved with Dick Curl as their QB coach... Oh wait.

The first step in the off-season should be re-signing Jared Allen. Both sides have a bit of leverage in this situation.

He is a proven player that greatly affects the game so we must keep him because we know he's good.

Good article on the subject:
