Detroit Lions interested in Kansas City Chiefs assistant coach?

Rob Carr

The name of Chiefs WR coach and assistant head coach, David Culley, has been thrown around for the Detroit Lions offensive coordinator job.

The Kansas City Chiefs wide receivers coach is a "name to watch" regarding the Detroit Lions offensive coordinator job. It was reported that the Lions would hire Bill Lazor, former Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach, as their offensive coordinator. But the Lions, who hired Jim Caldwell this week as head coach. did no such thing. Lazor was hired as the offensive coordinator in Miami.

So the Lions offensive coordinator remains open and the name of one of the Chiefs assistant coaches, David Culley, has popped up.

Christensen is the quarterbacks coach in Indianapolis. In addition to the Chiefs receivers coach, Culley is also the Chiefs assistant head coach, so he carries some weight in Kansas City.

Culley has been with Andy Reid since 1999 after stints with the Bucs and Steelers. That's a long time but apparently it's also a long-time coming for Culley, who is well-regarded in the coaching world.

Just throwing this out there: Vanderbilt has a head coach opening and Culley played there. Haven't heard any chatter about that though.

Andy Reid said after the season that he plans on keeping his coaching staff intact. Just one assistant coach -- special teams assistant Kevin O'Dea to the Buccaneers -- has left the Chiefs this offseason.

It was believed at one point that Chiefs personnel executive Chris Ballard was a candidate for the Bucs GM job, but he declined that opportunity. I haven't heard any other chatter around Chiefs assistants, such as Bob Sutton or Brad Childress.
