Chiefs Wide Receiver Coach Will Stay in Kansas City

As we previously reported here, the Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver and assistant head coach David Culley was being targeted for the offensive coordinator position with the Detroit Lions under newly installed head coach Jim Caldwell. It appears that he won’t be going anywhere.


This is actually really good news for the Chiefs. While most teams won’t hold their assistants back from getting a promotion with another team — which an OC job definitely would have been — keeping the same coaching crew together for the second straight year will pay dividends for the Chiefs.

One of the biggest issues with this team in the recent past has been consistency, not only with players but with the coaching staff. For the team to come in this off season with the same guys making the calls and coaching them up, after already having one year under their belt, there should be very little “learning” time which will allow them to hit the ground running. This is especially true with the Chiefs offense which seemed to hit its stride the latter half of the season.

Being able to continue that level of play going into next season should create some excitement for everyone.

    dang. I was kind of hoping he’d leave so KC could get someone that would teach our guys to CATCH THE BALL!!!

    I think Culley did pretty well with what he was given to work with…I think other teams noticed too as he was being drawn away with offers….I like the notion that all of our coordinators are buying in and staying put….what does that tell you? That these guys believe it can be done with what’s on their roster! Word of the day: STABILITY. Go Chiefs!
