Your Kansas City Chiefs Offensive Coordinator Candidates

The Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator search has no clear front-runner but for the first time we're starting to piece together a few of the potential candidates. The Chiefs search surely includes guys whose names we haven't heard yet and head coach Romeo Crennel indicated in a radio interview this week that he could talk to even more people regarding the position.

In other words, this list is a work-in-progress.

There's Al Saunders, the former Chiefs coordinator who is currently under contract with the Oakland Raiders. Former Chiefs coach Dick Vermeil told KC-area reporters Bob Gretz as well as the KC Star that Saunders interviewed in Kansas City.

Then there's Jim Zorn, who the KC Star reported had interviewed for the position. He's the internal candidate as he was the quarterbacks coach last season. The Star also reported that Zorn could consider resigning if he wasn't named the offensive coordinator but Zorn denied that to the Star via a team spokesperson.

Then there's Brian Daboll, the Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator. NFL Network's Jason La Canfora is the only one who has been reporting this and he has an updated report that the two sides are talking.

As of now, that's all we know. I'm sure there are other candidates they've interviewed, and possibly other candidates they will interview, but that's the list that's out there for now.
