Arrowheadlines: Chiefs News 1/1

Good morning everyone. I assume we're all pretty, um, tired this morning?

Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis a favorite for Gators job -
"It would be news to me," Haley said. "I have no idea. That’s not something I would talk about right now. Our focus is on the Oakland Raiders. At a later date, if something comes up, I surely will talk about it. "I’m unaware of anything. Charlie was out there coaching today, and we’re getting ready to beat the Oakland Raiders."

Weis, who walked away from Notre Dame with a huge buyout after he was forced out, is viewed as one of the better playcallers in the game. Getting an offensive mind of his stature would be a real coup for Muschamp and would obviously do nothing but help the Gators attract top talent wanting to play in Weis' offense.

The big question is, why would Weis leave? Apparently he feels more comfortable in the college game. Weis left his job as the New England offensive coordinator to be the head coach of Notre Dame. He joined the Chiefs after being fired in South Bend. This will be a very interesting story to monitor. But it’s clear, Kansas City fans should enjoy Weis while they have him. It appears the short, effective ride is about to end.

Chiefs slowly restoring Arrowhead atmosphere -
That was at the end of the 1990s, maybe the Chiefs’ best decade. Kansas City was hungry for a championship, and when it didn’t happen, that made Arrowhead an even more rowdy venue. "A scary place to come to," said Haley, who was an assistant for the New York Jets in the late ’90s, "and try to feel like you could win a game."

Marty Schottenheimer to be inducted into Chiefs Hall of Fame -
Haley said he got to know Schottenheimer as he was growing up through Haley’s father, Dick, a former Steelers scout. Schottenheimer is also from the Pittsburgh area. "They’ve remained close through the years because of it, and because of that I’ve gotten to know him very well," Haley said. "He’s somebody that I have a great amount of respect for as I watched him as a coach growing up. He was really one of my idols, truly one of my idols growing up. Having a connection there is always great and makes it a little easier to put somebody up there. But watching him do his thing, obviously one of the great head coaches who has won a lot of games."

McCluster's promise remains unfulfilled -
Yes, that explains it. McCluster, the shifty little playmaker, suffered a high-ankle sprain earlier this season and missed five consecutive games. He returned four weeks ago, but coach Todd Haley said this week that McCluster isn’t yet 100 percent — and that’s why this rookie hasn’t produced a play of at least 20 yards since Oct. 17. "It’s not good," Haley said, "for those little sports cars to need tune-ups."
