Andrew Carpenean-US PRESSWIRE
Morning, Addicts. The big news today is obviously the hiring of Brian Daboll to be the Chiefs’ new offensive coordinator. The Chiefs have yet to confirm the move but the report came from Adam Schefter and he usually isn’t wrong.
Daboll beat out Al Saunders and Jim Zorn for the gig. If the reports we’ve been hearing this week are true it could mean the end of Zorn’s future in KC. It was reported that Zorn would resign should he not be given the offensive coordinator position.
We’ll have more on Daboll later but for now, here is your Morning Fix!
The Kansas City Chiefs have hired former Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator Brian Daboll as their offensive coordinator, NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi confirmed Friday night.NFL Network insider Jason La Canfora reported Friday afternoon that the Chiefs were talking to Daboll, who has a relationship with Kansas City General Manager Scott Pioli from Pioli’s time in New England, where Daboll was on the coaching staff from 2000 to 2006.
Daboll was the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns from 2009 to 2010.
Branch — a strong safety from Oakland — and Carr — a cornerback from Kansas City — led all AFC West defensive backs in snap percentage during the 2011 season. Branch played 99.13 of Oakland’s defensive snaps last season. Carr played 96.82 percent of the Chiefs’ defensive snaps.
“It was a super experience and we both enjoyed the season ticket part of it because of the tailgating,” Jean Nobert said. “But as the season went on, things weren’t looking so good on the field and I had some very serious thoughts about not renewing our seats for 2012.“Of course, with Romeo Crennel they kind of perked up at the end of the season. I told my son that I’d be totally retired by next football season, so why not go ahead and renew again for at least one more year?”
