When Charlie Weis left, it was widely believed that whomever the Chiefs named as their new offensive coordinator would be very indicative of how large a role head coach Todd Haley would have in the offense. Now that Kansas City has picked its man, it appears Haley will have a major hand in that side of the ball. Bill Muir, the team's offensive line coach and a veteran coach in the league, was named coordinator on Feb. 3, with the club citing continuity as one of the major reasons for his promotion. But while Muir will help with the game-planning, as he already had been doing, we hear that Haley almost surely will handle play-calling duties. After reportedly butting heads with Weis at times in 2010, Haley has chosen someone unlikely to get in his way when it comes to calling plays and also someone whose knowledge of the ground game should aid the Chiefs' lethal rushing attack.
