The Kansas City Chiefs have found their next offensive coordinator in Brian Daboll. He held the same position with the Miami Dolphins last season.
It should come as a surprise to no one that Daboll worked for the New England Patriots, first as a defensive assistant, before moving to offense as the wide receivers coach. This is the third time he’s been a “Patriot Way” hire, the first two times as a part of Eric Mangini’s staffs with the New York Jets (quarterbacks coach) and Cleveland Browns (offensive coordinator). I don’t think I have to tell you how both of those situations played out for the respective offenses.
There really isn’t much here for Chiefs fans to get excited about. With Matt Cassel — and some form of comparable competition — needing to deliver more in the passing game, is this the guy that is going to get the job done?
Maybe, but he has yet to do anything noteworthy during his time in the NFL as an assistant coach. Hopefully that changes next season with the Chiefs with the help of the best running back he’s ever had the opportunity to game plan with in Jamaal Charles.
