If the Kansas City Chiefs were every really considering hiring Josh McDaniels to be their new offensive coordinator they just missed the boat.
ESPN.com is reporting via a league and team source that the St. Louis Rams have hired the former Denver Broncos head coach to be their new offensive coordinator. ESPN reported earlier that talks between the Rams and McDaniels had broken down, indicating a financial dispute.
It has been an interesting couple of years for McDaniels who was a hot head coaching candidate when the Broncos hired him 2 offseasons ago. McDaniels lead the Broncos to a 6-0 start in 2009 but the team collapsed down the stretch and continued to flounder in 2010. After one of his assistants was caught illegally video taping a San Fransisco 49ers walk through in London, McDaniels was fired.
After it was announced that Charlie Weis would be leaving Kansas City, many speculated that Scot Pioli would bring in McDaniels who had worked with Chiefs QB Matt Cassel in New England. The speculation, however, never materialized into anything concrete and now McDaniels is off the market.
The offensive coordinator search in Kansas City has been fairly quiet since the Chiefs were eliminated from the playoffs on Wild Card Weekend. The only possible candidate that leaked out was Denver offensive coordinator Mike McCoy, however it was announced recently that McCoy will be staying in Denver under new head coach John Fox.
What do you think Addicts? When will the Chiefs hired their new offensive coordinator? Any guesses?
