  • Steve Hoffmans contract was not renewed. Instead, we hired Tom McMahon, who was most recently the ST coach for the St. Louis Rams.

    Bye Hoffman!

      According to Bob Gretz, "the Chiefs wanted to keep Hoffman to coach only the kickers, but he declined that opportunity."

      More from Gretz:
      McMahon has spent the past three seasons in St. Louis with the Rams. Hes a native of Montana and began his coaching career in 1992 at his alma mater Carroll College. Thanks to his association with the Petrino coaching family, he moved up the ladder in the profession. McMahon played college football and spent two years coaching for Bob Petrino at Carroll. He later moved to Utah State where he worked for Paul Petrino over 11 years.
      The Chiefs also announced that they have not retained WR coach Richie Anderson and assistant offensive line coach Pat Perles.

      • Hi Chiefs fans!

        Question regarding Haley. What do you guys think of him? Would he be a good offensive coordinator?

        Props to clover_jeez!

          Question regarding Haley. What do you guys think of him? Would he be a good offensive coordinator?
          Haley was probably over his head as an HC but that doesn't mean he wasn't a good OC when he was with Arizona.

          Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star did a piece about Haley last year and here's part of what he said:
          Haley can be mean. He can be a jerk. He can be tough to deal with, dismissive, condescending, abrasive and a lot of other adjectives.

          He can also be an ATM machine.

          You think Bowe would be this close to cashing in without the tough love and guidance from Haley and the rest of the Chiefs’ power structure?

          This is Haley’s history. Larry Fitzgerald’s new contract includes a $50 million guarantee, and while he deserves every dime on his own talent, he’s repeatedly and specifically credited Haley with helping him develop.

          Anquan Boldin caught for more than 1,000 yards with Haley in Arizona, then signed a four-year and $28 million contract with Baltimore. He’ll make $6 million this year.

          Terrell Owens led the NFL in touchdowns with Haley in Dallas. Bill Parcells was publicly calling Terry Glenn “she” in Dallas when Haley came on staff and Glenn went for more than 1,000 yards two seasons in a row and led the NFL with 18.3 yards per catch in 2005.

          Marty Booker had consecutive 1,000-yard seasons with Haley in Chicago, and a high of 747 yards in the six years he played afterward. Keyshawn Johnson caught more than 4,000 yards and 31 touchdowns in four seasons with Haley in New York.

          Wayne Chrebet turned into something of a phenomenon with Haley, catching 84 passes one year and 1,083 yards another. His highs without Haley were 56 catches and 750 yards.
          The one thing that would worry me is whether he learned anything from his stay in KC. Even as an OC, he needs to delegate and let the coaches under him do their jobs. He had trouble doing that in KC when it came to the offensive coaches. Will he continue to micro-manage as an OC? He probably needs a strong HC to keep his ego and (I believe) his insecurity in check.

            • Excellent news, if the Chiefs are going to experience any success in 2012 Charles will be essential. Hopefully we will hear similar news from Moeaki and Berry soon as well.

              • So does the Routt signing mean they are letting Carr walk?

                  It means they won't overpay Carr. I'm sure they'll still offer him a contract to stay in KC, but he will definitely not be getting #1 CB money. As much as I love him, he isn't worth that.

                    I don't know about Carr not getting #1 CB money.Dallas needs CB help and you know Jerry ain't scared to overpay

                    • He won't be getting #1 CB money in KC. He'll DEFINITELY get it somewhere else, but he isn't worth it and they'll realize it after the ink is dry.

                        agreed.the contract we got Routt for is a good deal for a #2 CB.

                        • It's a GREAT deal for a #2 CB in this market, which is why I'm not too upset about this whole thing.

                          Will it suck to lose Carr? Absolutely. But Routt will become a better football player with Romeo Crennel and Emmitt Thomas coaching him up. I still don't see CB or DB in general as a weakness on this team.

                            Doubt they make a serious off otherwise they would be paying the nickel 4 million.

                            • Three QBs threw for over 5,000 yards last year. This is a passing league. Having three talented corners is never going to be a bad thing.

                                Hope that is the case rather than penny pinching.
