Bills vs. Chiefs: Chan Gailey's Return To Kansas City

The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Buffalo Bills on Sunday and for one man it will be a homecoming of sorts. Chan Gailey was the Chiefs offensive coordinator in 2008 under Herm Edwards before being released weeks before the start of the 2009 season under the Todd Haley regime.

"It's going to be personal for Chan, definitely," former Chiefs QB and current NFL analyst Trent Green told Kevin Kietzmann Monday on 810 WHB.

Indeed it'll be personal and it probably should be. The Chiefs cut ties with Gailey just a couple of weeks before the start of the season effectively ending any shot he had of getting another job (don't feel too bad -- he was still paid in '09).

Gailey hasn't said much about what happened telling reporters when he was hired, 'You'll have to ask Todd', when asked why it didn't work out in Kansas City.

Gailey's may also make the Chiefs look at what they're doing offensively and defensively and determine how much Gailey knows about them.

"The benefit the Chiefs have is that Romeo Crennel's in and that it's a completely different defensive coordinator and system than Chan faced in the OTAs and preseason," Green said on 810. "Its' different. He's not going to have an advantage of knowing ow that run or reflecting on his experience from days at practice and how the defense used to be fun."

On the offensive side of the ball, Gailey obviously doesn't have a ton of information considering he was fired because Haley wanted to install his offense.

Gailey knows some of the Chiefs personnel but as far as the offensive and defensive system he won't have much of an advantage that any other coach doesn't have.
