Chiefs Reportedly Had Interest In Mike Sherman Before He Went To Dolphins

New, comments

Throughout the week I'll do various radio shows and one of the questions the hosts always ask is who the Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator will be. I feel like I, the Chiefs "expert" they have on the air, should know at least some of the candidates for the job.

But we don't really know anything (there's a joke in there someplace). The only name sorta connected to the search was Josh McDaniels, but that was a couple of weeks ago before he joined the New England Patriots. Since then the only other outside name that's been brought up is Brian Daboll, who was the Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator.

Other than that? Names? Anyone? Bueller? I have no idea.

This tidbit won't help us in the search for the Chiefs next offensive coordinator but Dan Pompei, who writes the National Football Posts's Sunday Blitz, reports that the Chiefs had some interest in Mike Sherman.

Unfortunately, Sherman is no longer available as he's the new offensive coordinator in Miami. Pompei reported the Cleveland Browns and Oakland Raiders also had interest. NFP cites his close relationship with Joe Philbin (the new head coach) as one of the reasons he took the Miami job.

That's your Chiefs coordinator update-that-really-isn't-an-update for the day.
