Romeo Crennel Says Brian Daboll Had Multiple Suitors

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.
