The Kansas City Chiefs Coaching Staff As Of Now

The Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff is wide open on the offensive side of the ball. With Bill Muir's retirement announcement, the Chiefs have a number of spots available on the coaching staff. The defensive staff is basically intact but the offense needs several key ingredients.

Here's another look at where we stand with the Chiefs coaching staff an what we're waiting on.

The current offensive staff: Jim Zorn (quarterbacks), Bernie Parmalee (tight ends), Nick Sirianni (offensive quality control) and Maurice Carthon (assistant head coach).

What we're waiting on: offensive coordinator, offensive line, receivers.

The new offensive coordinator will have a couple of pieces in house whenever the Chiefs decide who that person will be. If someone on the outside is hired, you gotta wonder if Zorn will stick around. The Chiefs denied the Bears request to interview Zorn for the same position in Chicago and the KC Star has reported he could resign if he's not made the offensive coordinator (nothing like a little public pressure).

The current defensive staff: Romeo Crennel (defensive coordinator), Gary Gibbs (linebackers), Anthony Pleasant (defensive line), Emmitt Thomas (defensive backs), Adam Zimmer (defensive assistant/assistant linebackers) and Otis Smith (defensive quality control).

What we're waiting on: nothing.

Romeo is officially the defensive coordinator and his staff is staying intact. There were reports that the Oakland Raiders were interested in Emmitt Thomas, perhaps as defensive coordinator. But it sounds like he's staying in Kansas City.

The current special teams staff: Tom McMahon.

The Chiefs let Steve Hoffman go and hired McMahon from the St. Louis Rams.
