Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley announced yesterday that offensive coordinator Bill Muir
to start the season. It was long speculated the Haley would carry out those duties following the departure of Charlie Weis.
“Bill Muir,” Haley said finally, more than seven months since promoting the longtime coach into the team’s vacancy at offensive coordinator.
“It’s a group contribution of what we like, where we like it, and kind of place that along the call sheet. But ultimately it will fall to Bill to make those decisions.”
“That’s really how you get the final feel, I believe, for calling the plays,” Haley said. “You script the plays you want versus the defenses you want, as you get to the regular season. The guy who’s doing the majority of that during the week, which is him, has ultimately the best feel for what he thinks he’s going to see defensively.”
