BILL MUIR RETIRES FROM NFL
Wed, 08 Feb 2012 11:18 AM EST

Coach Bill Muir a longtime NFL assistant followed through on his idea to retire, informing the Chiefs that he wouldn’t return for a 35th season in the league. Vegas odds

Muir incorporated the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009 as offensive line coach under Todd Haley, and was elevated to offensive coordinator last season. But the Kansas City wrestled with injuries and inconsistency, which ended in the firing of Haley
and the hiring of Romeo Crennel as head coach.

The 69-year-old Muir is considered one of the very best offensive line coaches in NFL, though he wasn’t predicted to remain as the Chiefs’ offensive coordinator if he stayed on the personnel. Betting lines

“It has been an honor to be part of this awesome league for so prolonged,” Muir said in an announcement issued by the Kansas City. “Throughout the years I’ve created a lot of excellent buddies and previously worked with numerous talented players and coaches. This was a private call for me, the timing was correct.”

Muir played tackle for Susquehanna University, a small liberal arts college in central Pennsylvania, and got his start in training there in 1965.

He bounced thru stops at Delaware Valley, Rhode Island, Idaho State and SMU before getting his break in pro football with Orlando of the short-lived Continental League.

His first job in the NFL was as a scout for Tampa Bay from 1978-81, and he came back to the Buccaneers more than two decades later, helping the organization win its only Super Bowl.

In between, he spent time working with the offensive lines in Detroit and New England, and as defensive coordinator and offensive line coach in Indianapolis. Muir also spent 7 seasons with the New York Jets as offensive line coach prior to returning to the Buccaneers.

“I have a tremendous quantity of appreciation for Bill,” Chiefs CEO Scott Pioli recounted. “I have previously worked with him for an extended period of time and have witnessed him build up a bunch of very good football players. His contributions are rather appreciated and he’ll be missed.”

Not by every admirer in Kansas City, though.

Muir bore the brunt of feedback for the Chiefs’ inadequate effort on offense last season even though there were always questions on maybe he was really in charge. Haley’s background on offense and tendency to micromanage led countless to believe he was calling the shots.

It didn’t help that Kansas City lost tight end Tony Moeaki and All-Pro running back Jamaal Charles to season-ending knee injuries in a span of 3 weeks at the start of the season.

QB Matt Cassel joined them on IR with a hand wound sustained in Week ten.

The Kansas City Chiefs still managed to play themselves into a position to protect their AFC West title regardless of fighting on offense. But their playoff aspirations were smashed when they managed only 13 points in an overtime loss to Oakland Raiders in the penultimate game of the season.

Kansas City didn’t score at least twenty points in its last 9 games.

Crennel has been tight-lipped about Muir’s possible alternative, though quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn and helper chief coach Maurice Carthon are thought to be internal applicants.

Crennel has suggested that it might be after the Super Bowl before he makes a call.

“I’m thrilled for Bill as he address into retirement,” Crennel related. “I have known him for a long time and he is one of the finest coaches I’ve all the time been around, and an even better individual. Bill is an excellent mate and I have a great amount of admiration for the way he worked.

“It was an accomplishment to work alongside him.”
