Tony Sparano to interview with Chiefs for o-line job, according to report

The Kansas City Chiefs announced their new coaching staff on Friday but a couple of positions, including offensive line, weren't filled in yet. Per a report from ESPN, former Dolphins coach Tony Sparano will interview for that job.

There have been indications that the Kansas City Chiefs are interested in Cleveland Browns assistant coach George Warhop for the role of offensive line coach.

Maybe that's the case. Maybe not.

I say that because of this:

The Chiefs didn't name an offensive line coach when they made their coaching staff announcement on Friday. It was initially believed that Juan Castillo, who coached the offensive line (and, uh, defense) under Andy Reid in Philadelphia, would be a candidate for the job. Then came the Warhop rumors.

Now we're on Sparano.

Many of you should know Sparano. He was the Dallas Cowboys offensive line coach and assistant head coach from 2003-07 before taking the Miami Dolphins head coaching job. He was let go after the 2011 season, joining the New York Jets as offensive coordinator last season. That means he was in New York with Bob Sutton, the Chiefs new defensive coordinator.

There are reports that the Cowboys are also interested in Sparano. The same Cowboys that hired Monte Kiffin, who the Chiefs reportedly wanted to hire.

So ... whaddya think?
