Chiefs' Offensive Coordinator Bill Muir Likely To Retire, Says Report


The Kansas City Chiefs entered the 2011 season with what most considered to be a pretty high-powered offense.

The team was returning Matt Cassel, Tony Moeaki, Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe and they had added Steve Breaston and Jonathan Baldwin.

Unfortunately, injuries and shoddy play calling led to the Chiefs having a unit that was amongst the worst in the league.

Some of the blame has to be put at the feet of offensive coordinator Bill Muir. Though the offense did appear to improve after Todd Haley left and Kyle Orton took over under center, KC still struggled to find the end zone.

According Jason La Canfora of NFL.com, Muir is likely to retire this offseason.

This is a move I expected. Muir has been coaching for 46 years and this was his 34th NFL season. Heck of a career for Muir, who is well respected around the league.

The leading candidate to replace Muir is St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels should he be relieved of his duties across the way.
