Chiefs Say They're In Discussions With Brian Daboll

This might be a first.

Maybe no one noticed but the Kansas City Chiefs actually talked about an ongoing negotiation. On the team's website, Josh Looney writes:

Currently, the Chiefs are in discussions with Brian Daboll to become the team's next offensive coordinator.

Multiple outlets have reported that Daboll will be headed to the Chiefs so we're just waiting for an official confirmation from the team but I don't remember the Chiefs ever updating fans in the middle of a coaching search like this. They usually only comment on these things when it's done so for them to write on their website that they're "in discussions" with someone is a departure from the way they usually operate.

Maybe (probably) I'm the only one who actually cares about this but I found it very unusual.

I wonder why they did that.
