Kansas City Chiefs lose assistant coach to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Chiefs lose their assistant special teams coach to the Buccaneers.

Earlier today I wrote that it appears the Chiefs coaching staff won't be purged for other jobs around the league.

And then I noticed we missed something -- they've already lost someone.

New Buccaneers head coach Lovie Smith announced his new coaching staff and one of the names is Kevin O'Dea. Hmm, that sounds familiar. That's actually the Chiefs special teams assistant. Well, former Chiefs special teams assistant.

This is a nice promotion for O'Dea, who will now head up the Bucs special teams. He came to Kansas City from Chicago to be the assistant to Chiefs special teams coach Dave Toub.

O'Dea is known for his work with kickers and punters.

That's one more position for the Chiefs to fill on the coaching staff. See, no coaching staff stays the same.
