The Kansas City Chiefs have announced that they have hired former St. Louis Rams special teams coordinator Tom McMahon to be their new special teams coach.

“I’m very blessed to have the opportunity to come to Kansas City and be a part of Romeo’s staff,” McMahon said, via KCChiefs.com. “Romeo and I have a shared vision of what it takes to win and I’m excited to get started.”

Accordingly, the Chiefs have let go Steve Hoffman.

The team has also let go receivers coach Richie Anderson and assistant offensive line coach Pat Perless. You may remember we told you this move was expected back on Jan. 14.

This move sets up the addition of an offensive coordinator. My guess is Crennel will square away that position soon and will likely allow his new hire significant input on replacing Anderson and Perless.

The last we heard, Bill Muir still planned on staying with KC next season to coach the offensive line. My guess is that is a fluid situation and may also be dependent on the opinion of the new coordinator.
