Chiefs’ Mitch Schwartz doesn’t have to learn a new offense for a change

Chiefs RT Mitch Schwartz is coming from Cleveland where the Browns like to fire head coaches and offensive coordinators. He’s now in Kansas City where they don’t have that type of turnover. It’s been a change, Schwartz says, in a good way.

“It’s my first year I’ve had the same system back to back years,” Schwartz told the media after OTAs on Tuesday. “I’ve had a lot of offensive coordinator and head coach turnover.”

Schwartz pointed out that some Chiefs here have four-plus years of experience in this offense (since Andy Reid arrived). Reid has talked about adding a little more and a little more each year which Schwartz mentioned.

“It’s nice to be familiar with it and not really have to learn the basics of the play, you can learn the intricate details,” Schwartz said.

Schwartz should be among the experts now that he’s the old man in the room. Among the Chiefs starters, he is the oldest offensive lineman at the ancient age of 27.
