Chiefs New Offensive Line Coach Excited About The Promotion

Jack Bicknell Jr. is in for quite a change as he leaves the New York Giants as an assistant offensive line coach and joins the Kansas City Chiefs as the head offensive line coach. It's that promotion that ultimately made the decision for him.

Bicknell spoke with the Giants website as he was packing his boxes this week.

"It's tough to leave," Bicknell Jr. said. "If I didn't have an opportunity to go from an assistant to a head O-line guy, trust me, I wouldn't be leaving, obviously. But it does give me an opportunity to be the head guy and I'm excited about that."

There are some pretty good quotes in there from Bicknell:
  • On working with the Giants offensive line: "You're around them more than your own kids or wife or anybody else."
  • On working with the Giants coaches: "(Working with) Coach Coughlin and (offensive coordinator) Kevin Gilbride, it's honestly like working on your doctorate."
  • On whether he thought he'd get a job this offseason: "A lot of the jobs had been filled up by the time we were done."
But don't get used to hearing him talk. Non-coordinator assistant coaches don't get much publicity in KC.
