As the NFL’s coaching carousel continues to spin, another coach associated with the Kansas City Chiefs has been brought into the fold. Chiefs Assistant Head Coach and wide receiver coach David Culley is being targeted by newly annointed Detroit Lions head coach Jim Caldwell for the offensive coordinator position. Ian Rapoport tweeted out the news earlier today.

From the Chiefs official bio on their website:
Prior to arriving in Kansas City, Culley served 14 seasons as the wide receivers coach for the Philadelphia Eagles (1999-2012) working for Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid who held the same role for the Eagles during that timeframe.
Culley has been a coach for 21 years in the NFL at this point though he’s never served in the role of offensive coordinator. He played quarterback for Vanderbilt University from 1973 – 1977 before returning to coach the wideouts in 1999. He’s spent the majority of his career as a wide receivers coach and has served stints with the Tampa Bay Bucaneers, the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Philadelphia Eagles before following Chiefs head coach Andy Reid this past off season.
Should Culley move to the Lions to take this promotion, we here at AA wish him the best of luck.
