Lots of Cowboys Connections to the Chiefs Coaching Staff

New, comments

Courtesy of the mothership, we have this week's Kansas City Chiefs/Dallas Cowboys connections. Enjoy.

  • Kansas City head coach Todd Haley was the passing game coordinator/WRs coach under head coach Bill Parcells with Dallas (2004-06).
  • Chiefs asst. head coach Maurice Carthon (2003-04), def. coord. Clancy Pendergast (’96-02), LBs coach Gary Gibbs (2002-05) and special teams coach Steve Hoffman (’89-04) also coached for Dallas.
  • Kansas City WRs coach Dedric Ward played WR for Dallas (2004).
  • Chiefs WR Terrance Copper (2004-05) and TE Sean Ryan (2004-05) each played with Dallas.
  • Dallas NT Junior Siavii (2004-07) spent time in KC, while Cowboys LB Steve Octavien entered the NFL as a rookie FA with KC in 2008.
  • Dallas scout Mitch LaPoint served in the KC Personnel Dept. (’98-04).
  • Chiefs OL coach Bill Muir coached at SMU (’76-77).
  • Kansas City RB Jamaal Charles and LB Derrick Johnson played at the University of Texas.
  • Chiefs G Brian Waters is a native of Waxahachie, TX and played collegiately at North Texas.
  • Dallas head coach Wade Phillips coached at Kansas (’75).
  • Cowboys RBs coach Skip Peete played collegiately at Kansas. 
  • Cowboys pro scout Henry Sroka worked at Wichita State.
  • Dallas asst. athletic trainer Greg Gaither worked at K-State (’99-00). 
  • Cowboys CB Terence Newman played at Kansas State and is a native of Salina, KS.

All of you reppin' Salina make sure you give us a shout out. And one more note, since these connections mentioned the Texas Longhorns. I'm finding myself really wishing the Longhorns would lose each week, simply to wipe the annoying smiles off of all of these UT fans running around this town. There's too many of them and they're too confident in their team to have rational conversations.

Oh, and Colt McCoy annoys the heck out of me.
