Chiefs Hire Special Teams Coach; Part Ways With Three Others

We have some actual Kansas City Chiefs coaching news.

Just not the offensive coordinator (yet).

The Chiefs announced they've hired Tom McMahon to coach special teams. McMahon comes from the St. Louis Rams where he was the special teams coordinator the last three seasons. Here's an interview from last November with the Chiefs new special teams coach.

Prior to the Chiefs, McMahon was in St. Louis and before that two years with the Atlanta Falcons. He was also on the Louisville staff as well as Utah State.

McMahon's hire also means Steve Hoffman, the previous special teams coach, is out. The Chiefs announced he has not been retained.

And in more Chiefs coaching news, two more coaches are not coming back: receivers coach Richie Anderson and assistant offensive line coach Pat Perles were not retained. It had been previously rumored that they were on their way out.
