This isn't a major surprise but Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley confirmed today at his press conference that offensive coordinator Bill Muir will be calling the plays for the Chiefs this year. Muir handled those duties during the preseason so the best guess was that he would do it doing the regular season, too.

It's a tradition around here to be figuring out who will call the plays days before the season starts.

Here's what Haley said today about Muir calling the plays (audio via 610Sports.com):
"Bill Muir, as we've been doing. And like I've said, really the play calling for us, and really a lot of places I've been, will be a group effort throughout the week of kinda trying to get everybody on the same page for gameday. Each and every week that's been an area that takes some work in practice and you can really only get that work in games and I feel like we made progress as a staff throughout the preseason and now it's the regular season and we're ready to go."

So it'll be a group effort during the week to determine what they want and like on the call sheet -- that group includes the quarterbacks -- and then it'll be up to Muir to make the calls on gameday.

Chiefs QB Matt Cassel sort of suggested yesterday on 810 WHB it would be Muir would be calling plays when he noted, "We have some new faces that are calling plays...."

Also of note is that Muir said a few months ago that he's never been the main playcaller.
