http://nbcprofootballtalk.files.wordpress.com/2013/01/350x-621.jpg?w=250 Getty ImagesWe noted this morning that Dave Toub was likely to leave the Bears and become the special teams coordinator of the Chiefs (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/01/15/toub-on-his-way-out-of-chicago-after-head-coach-interview/), and this afternoon it became official.
The Chiefs have announced that Toub signed his contract as special teams coordinator today.
“Dave is one of the league’s best special teams minds (http://www.kcchiefs.com/news/article-2/Chiefs-Name-Dave-Toub-as-Special-Teams-Coordinator/67d19206-b298-4df5-8b61-acc333379543),” Chiefs coach Andy Reid said. “He will bring an innovative approach and consistency to this group. Dave will get the most out of our players and I’m very happy he is joining our staff.”
Toub was a very well regarded special teams coach during his time with the Bears. Returners Devin Hester (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3675/devin-hester) and Johnny Knox (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/5363/johnny-knox), special teams coverage players Brendon Ayanbadejo (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/1251/brendon-ayanbadejo) and Corey Graham (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/4318/corey-graham) and kicker Robbie Gould (http://www.rotoworld.com/player/nfl/3519/robbie-gould) all made the Pro Bowl under Toub’s tutelage.
Toub previously worked for Reid in Philadelphia from 2001 to 2003.

I think we can say that this coaching staff is going to be way better then the one we saw in 2012 but that's not saying alot me and my madden playbook would have been better then that staff if you want to call that a coaching staff.

Maybe not next year but within a couple of years it should be. It might take more than a few months to got rid of the wrong players and get the correct one in here.

Well, I'm not expecting a Super Bowl or anything, but I think there's more than reason to hope for way more than two wins.

This past season didn't exactly set the bar very high. LOL!

absolutely thrilled w/this hire. Toub is considered to be one of the better ST coaches in the nfl and we certainly need healp there.
