Brady, Gannon Say Chiefs' Cassel Will Fit Well With Weis

Kansas City Chiefs QB Matt Cassel recently spoke with Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star regarding the addition of Charlie Weis. Cassel was excited, as he should be, because he understands what Weis did for a former teammate of his  - Tom Brady.

"I know he loved him as a coach," Cassel said. "He talked about him all the time and would always tell me what a huge impact he had on his career. He tells me he’s a great leader and a great coach and he provides great direction."

When Todd Haley released Chan Gailey and became his own offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach at the beginning of the season, assistant Joel Collier began to become kind of the de facto quarterbacks coach. It was a strange fit, to say the least, since Collier's title with the Chiefs is Assistant General Manager.

Former Chiefs quarterback and current CBS analyst Rich Gannon told Teicher that adding a coordinator should simply give Cassel enough time with one person.

"Todd told me at one point during the season that he liked the road games the best because he could sit next to Matt on the plane and they could go through everything, all the different game situations and the first 20 plays and third downs and all of those things," Gannon said. "That’s because he was trying to catch up from what they missed during the week."

"Now that Charlie is here, it will be great to have a guy who can concentrate totally on the offense," Cassel said.
