Chiefs Could Look To Miami For An Offensive Coordinator

The Miami Dolphins fired their head coach Tony Sparano (who just got picked up by the New York Jets) at the end of the 2011 NFL season which means there could be some turnover on their coaching staff.

And methinks we should keep an eye on Miami for potential coaches for the Chiefs staff.

Tony Grossi of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer, who covered Romeo Crennel when he was with the Cleveland Browns, took a guess that Brian Daboll, Miami's current offensive coordinator, could end up being the Chiefs next offensive coordinator. (Let's reiterate -- he's just guessing, not reporting.)

[Update: And I just heard that Michael Lombardi on 810 WHB this morning speculated on Miami as well. Here I thought I had some original thoughts...]

I've also separately heard that the Chiefs could be looking at someone on Miami's staff and Daboll makes a lot of sense, if the Patriots connection matters. He was in New England in the early-to-mid-2000s so he knows both Crennel and GM Scott Pioli. He's worked for several guys (Tony Sparano, Eric Mangini) who have that Pioli/Parcells connection that we sometimes see in Chiefs' hires.

I'm not saying it's going to happen. I'm just saying he's one of the names being thrown around in league circles.
