Chris Ault isn't sure if he's in KC to help the Chiefs offense or defense

USA TODAY Sports

The KC Chiefs hired the creator of the pistol offense -- but will he be helping the Chiefs offense or the defense?

Shortly after the Kansas City Chiefs hired Chris Ault, the former Nevada head coach and creator of the pistol offense, I wrote that it's possible that Ault could be coming to Kansas City to help the Chiefs defense as much as the offense. Dan Hinxman of the Reno Gazzette Journal writes in this interview with Ault and his agent, Bob LaMonte, that Ault isn't sure whether he's coming on board to help the Chiefs run the pistol or to stop the pistol. Or none of the above.

Check out this piece from the Reno Gazzette Journal for quotes from Ault and his agent.

Ault retired from Nevada last season but there were indications he could head to the NFL. The report states that Ault had interest from multiple teams, including the Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and Minnesota Vikings.

Ault will be in Kansas City in about two weeks -- May 28 -- to begin with the Chiefs at OTAs, although he won't be exclusively in Kansas City while working with the Chiefs.

Also, It's a one-year deal.
