The Morning Fix: Chiefs News From Around The Web

This is the first year of eligibility for Shields, a 12-time Pro Bowler and nine-time All-Pro selection. Shields was picked by the Chiefs in the third round of the 1993 NFL draft after he won the Outland Trophy at Nebraska.

After Shields came off the bench in the 1993 opener at Tampa Bay, he went on to make a franchise-record 231 consecutive starts (including playoffs) during 14 seasons. Shields, who retired following the 2006 season, was selected to the NFL 2000s All-Decade Team.

When Haley was fired Dec. 12, among the other popular options for the Chiefs were former Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher and St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels. But Fisher indicated he will choose between head coaching jobs with St. Louis and Miami while the Chiefs never reached out to McDaniels. He appears headed back to New England as an assistant coach.

The team has been conducting a thorough head coaching search since Todd Haley was relieved of his head coaching duties December 12th.

The Chiefs have yet to make any official announcement and have not scheduled a press conference at this time.

When the Chiefs do schedule a press conference to announce the club’s next head coach, the presser will be carried live on KCChiefs.com.
