Weis on Chiefs: 'This is Todd's ship, I'm just here to help guide it'

The Kansas City Chiefs made official today what we've known since the middle of the week: Charlie Weis will be the new offensive coordinator.

Weis met with the media this afternoon and calmed some fears out there on his ability to work with Chiefs head coach Todd Haley.

One concern Jason Whitlock of the Kansas City Star brought up was the ability for these two to work together. Last time they were together, Weis was the upper level coach and Haley was just a scouting assistant causing some to wonder how the relationship would work when the tables are turned.

According to Weis, they've hashed out any potential problems they might have. "That was the first issue we had to get settled," Weis said according to Kent Babb of the Kansas City Star. "Ten years ago, it might have been a different situation."

Another question mark entering this marriage was whether Weis was using the Chiefs coordinator job as a stepping stone to potentially becoming the head coach if Haley flames out. Not so, says Weis.

"That's the furthest thing from my mind right now. I want to help the Kansas City Chiefs get better," he said.

Haley and Weis both cited "fit" as the biggest reason this thing got worked out. Haley said it was "so right on the money" while Weis said he knew in early December that Kansas City would be "one of the teams on his radar." However, the two sides did not speak about joining the Chiefs until after the Denver game.

"It's Todd's ship, and I just want to be there to help guide it."
