Chiefs’ fifth offensive coordinator in 4 years is hoping to lend certain much -needed stability to his new team.
Brian Daboll recounted that he expects equilibrium to be particularly crucial. Las Vegas odds
“You look at teams, usually percentage-wise that have been productive over the years, a single word I suspect is frequently overlooked is duration,” Daboll announced at his initial news conference with the Chiefs. “When you may have a plan in play and you realize that your players will be in that plan and they understand their part that gives you a fragment of a jump start.
The 36-year-old Daboll will replace the retired Bill Muir. He was offensive coordinator last year at Miami and ran the offense at Cleveland the 2 years before that. Vegas odds
Since Scott Pioli took control of as GM after the 2008 season, offensive coordinator in Kansas City has been one of the most questioning positions in the NFL. Chan Gailey was fired one or two days before the 2009 season commenced and replaced by Todd Haley, who spent his first year as a head coach also running the offense.
Charlie Weis held the position the subsequent season, resigned and was replaced for 1 year by Muir.
“So we have got some work to do here installing our accomplishments and I look forward to it,” Daboll announced.
Like Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel, Daboll’s career roots are deep in the New England program, where he used to be a young helper from 2000-2005.
“I believe a lot of folks say he’s another man from the New England tree,” Crennel expounded. “But it’s been a while since he’s been in New England, and I just occur to be from that New England tree also. Sometimes knowing folk and understanding what they’re about is significant. In this example, that was important to me. Plus, I know he is a good human being and an exceedingly hard worker.”
Daboll follows an offense that was destroyed by wounds last year, losing Pro Bowl running back Jamaal Charles after only 12 carries and tight end Tony Moeaki in the preseason. A hand injury postponed quarterback Matt Cassel for most of the 2nd half of a season that finished with a 7-9 mark and Haley’s removal.
Daboll guaranteed an aggressive strategy.
“The 1st word I want to use is ‘attack,’ ” he said.”When you’re an offensive football trainer, you wish to try to really set case precedent on the defense and attack the defense.”
Daboll’s best NFL offense so far has ranked 22nd in the league. Since Crennel plans to be defensive coordinator as well as chief coach, Daboll will have more liberty than most offensive coordinators in the NFL.
“You know what, to a degree he will since I am going to rely on him to deal with the offensive side of the ball,” Crennel expounded.
“But that being said, because of our relationship, we’re going to be in a position to sit down and say, ‘This is how we want to attack an opponent, this is what we need to do in a project, and then anticipate Brian to implement those things.”
