1990s Chiefs - what was the offense running?


Hey folks,

I'm a Longhorns fan, usually over at Burnt Orange Nation, but check in with the Chiefs from time to time after the recent drafts of Charles and others.

Anyway, an unrelated question - I was watching one of the NFL Network's Top Games this evening, and they were showing a game from 1990, Seahawks @ KC. The thing that caught my eye was several possessions in which the Chiefs ran a 4-wide set out of the shotgun, with one man in the backfield.

Now I'm sure at the time it wasn't referred to as the spread, but this certainly was a rare scheme, given that it's rare scheme to see in the NFL even today. What was this referred to at the time? Was it a novelty then as much as it would be today?

Any KC history buffs that can educate me on who the OC was and what he was running would be appreciated!
