We may have seen the end of the Bill Muir era with the Kansas City Chiefs. At least according to Jason La Canfora.

The NFL Network insider reports that Muir, the Chiefs offensive coordinator and primary play caller, is "likely" to retire. Muir is 69 years old and there has been speculation lately that the Chiefs will hire a new offensive coordinator so the report shouldn't come as a major shock.

Muir spoke to the media last week and I didn't notice any indication this is the way he's leaning.

Even without a retirement decision, you have to wonder if Muir would be back. This was his first season as the Chiefs offensive coordinator and play caller and KC ended the season ranked 31st in the league. Yes, there were quarterback concerns in the second half of the season but even with Matt Cassel early in the year the team was too inconsistent.

So we'll keep an eye out for news on Muir's future. Plenty of folks have been speculating that the Chiefs will hire an offensive coordinator. If Muir retires, that will confirm a new OC is coming to town.
