The Kansas City Chiefs made it official and hired Brian Daboll as their new offensive coordinator. In the release provided by the team a few minutes ago, Daboll and head coach Romeo Crennel are quoted about the move.
"This is a great opportunity," Daboll said. "After meeting with Romeo, it was clear to me Kansas City was a good fit. I have a lot of respect for Romeo and a strong appreciation for the Kansas City Chiefs franchise. Romeo and I have similar ideas on the direction of the program and we have a good core group of players to get started with. I'm ready to get in as soon as possible and start working to be a part of something special."
With the injured guys like Jamaal Charles and Tony Moeaki coming back, the Chiefs do have the pieces in place to be a very dynamic offense.
"Brian is a fine football coach and offensive mind," said Crennel. "I worked with him when he was a young coach in New England and I am proud of the way his career has developed. We had a very thorough process for this position and it was clear to me that Brian was the right choice. He was coveted by multiple teams and I am glad he will be joining our staff."
Interesting tidbit from Crennel there -- Daboll was "coveted by multiple teams". I'm not sure who those teams were -- they never made it to the public -- but I found it interesting he noted that in his quote.
