One Reason Chiefs May Look South For Charlie Weis Replacement

Yes, the Kansas City Chiefs have a playoff game this weekend but there's also the issue of the next offensive coordinator to be solved. Jeff Chadiha of ESPN.com has an extensive story on Chiefs head coach Todd Haley and included this nugget, perhaps as a clue to where the Chiefs might look next for Charlie Weis' replacement:

Weis' impending departure (before turning his attention to Florida, he has agreed to stay throughout the Chiefs' playoff run) has created questions about Haley's ability to co-exist with his coordinators. Still, a team source said Haley hired Weis only after being denied a chance to interview Tampa Bay offensive coordinator Greg Olson.    

The KC Star's Adam Teicher also dropped Olson's name as a possible candidate when news of Weis' departure first came up. It sounds like Olson may be a name to keep an eye on moving forward.

On a different note, the timing of this information is a little odd, at least to me. As Weis is on his way out, a team source says he was actually the second choice for the job? Why say that now? That's a little strange to me, especially in light of the reaction to Weis' departure.
