Source: Chiefs chop Chan Gailey | ProFootballTalk.com (http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2009/08/31/source-chiefs-chop-chan-gailey/)


A source within the otherwise impenetrable walls of One Arrowhead Drive advises that the Chiefs have fired this morning offensive coordinator Chan Gailey.

Gailey survived the initial purge of assistant coaches after Todd Haley was hired in February.

It's unclear what has changed between then and now.

Gailey became a star in the mid-1990s, serving as the offensive coordinator of the Steelers. After the 1997 season, he became head coach of the Cowboys, but he lasted only two years.

He then spent two years with the Dolphins before becoming head coach at Georgia Tech, where he recruited and developed receiver Calvin Johnson.

Gailey was fired after the 2007 season, and he joined the Chiefs as a member of Herm Edwards' staff.

In January 2007, former Steelers coach Bill Cowher endorsed Gailey for the job Cowher vacated, suggesting Gailey instead of Ken Whisenhunt and Russ Grimm, who served on Cowher's final staff and who were regarded as finalists for the job.

So look for Gailey to take a year off with pay and to join Cowher if/when Cowher re-enters the NFL next season.Let me be the first to say that I think this is a bad move if true. I consider Gailey to be a very good offensive coordinator, not to mention the timing is really odd.

Note this also means that we likely won't have an offensive coordinator this season and Haley will be handling play-calling duties.

im certainly not a huge Chan Gailey fan, but i think whoever replaces him at this point will be worse...the timing i definitely odd, and if Haley calls plays, he wont be able to focus on the team as a whole...coaches calling all he plays never seems to work out....where is Al Saunders : /

the timing is odd, unless haley just can't not call offensive plays. in order for the head coach to call the offense, he has to give up power over defense. oh well

i dont care if god himself takes over the play calling. until they fix the o-line the passing attack wont be more than ten yard, unless the wr can run. the qb wont have time to throw.
Other than bowe there is no wr that can scare a high school corner.

Haley already has admitted it is hard for him to not call the plays...it is what he does best...Arizona's offense last year was unbelievable, and it was all Haley...I am sure he will promote someone from within, and they will have an active discussion during the game...After the Seahawks game, I think Haley just couldn't take it anymore

Actually he was fired when Gibbs retired, then he went to the Rams, who also fired him. He's probably unofficially retired at this point.

This is a surprise move. I think Haley would open up the offense but if its at the coast of the D then its a bad move. I will wait and see before i call it a bad move. But wow this is a surprise. I thought it would happen at the end of the season not now.

Whisenhunt called offense for PIT, won superbowl, goes to Arizona, calls offense...finds out it isnt working, so he gets Haley to do it....my point being the head coach should not call the plays, it should be up to the Offensive Coordinator...an extremely important staff position...i have a feeling Haley is biting off a little more than he can handle with this one...Its one thing to run a team operation in all three phases, but to do that AND develop offensice schemes against defenses is going to make Haley's head spin...i hope he is up for all the work, and challenge...my question is why didnt they get rid of Gailey earlier....do you really think they flamed him just bc Cassel got hurt? There HAS to be more to it than that...doesnt there? lol...

I liked Gailey. But, there are some coaches around the league who call plays successfully. Andy Reid, Mike Holmgren, and Brian Billick come to mind immediately.

There's no real good timing for this, but if it were going to happen, it might as well happen before the season starts. I wonder if Haley isn't already feeling some pressure to show results. This move was made by Billick in the middle of the season and it showed immediate, positive results. Haley DOES have experience at OC, but it kinda bothers me that he's ALSO going to be the QBs coach.

Haley is beginning to micromanage and that USUALLY isn't a good thing for a head coach to do. A head coach taking over the OC spot HAS worked before, just not very often. I hope he's an exception instead of the rule.

In his defense.... he's right about Haley. :lol: I think KC needs to still buy tix. I HATE bandwagon jumpers. If you're going to be a fan, you should be a fan thru thick and thin. If I lived there, I'd buy season tix EVERY SEASON, no matter what. Cutting the revenue stream is only going to hurt what the franchise can do to improve the team in the future.

But as for Haley, I think he was a poor choice. But I didn't know much about him other than he didn't have a long track record with any one team or coaching staff. He fights with his players. Now, he's starting to micromanage. I think Haley's tactics are good for a young team. His hard-nosed approach is something I like, especially because our team is so young and it shows the young players exactly what is expected of them in the NFL. The problem comes when we're trying to attract free agents or keep the studs we've drafted and developed. By the time this team is mature enough to compete, they're all going to want out if their head coach keeps calling them out and embarrassing them on the sidelines.

I like the approach Haley is taking with this team, but I doubt he's going to be the long-term answer at head coach. Maybe his move to be the OC is just a step toward his permanent position with this team. I have a feeling we're going to be looking for one of those big name head coaches like Cowher this next winter.

Personally I am on the fence with Haley. I am not about to start pointing out all his flaws after 3 preseason games. He is already gotten the team in better shape than Herm eer did. And honestly...what did Chan Gailey ever really do for the team? We were never an offensive juggernaut under him. Not saying he was bad but he was only slightly better than Herm. As for telling that douche bag to f**k off, I dont really give a sh!t if he does not want seasons tickets. I dont want him to have them either.

At least he's showing he's just as frustrated as we are and is trying to do something about it. That's more than I can say about Herm. I thought the previous regime was on the right track, but I didn't like that he didn't address obvious problems... like scoring touchdowns.

I just wish SOMEONE would do SOMETHING about the O-line. Turns out EVERYONE is made of glass behind a ****ty line like this one. The only one that can stay healthy is the one that can scramble. Hell, maybe WE should've signed Vick.

I understand but the timing is crappy and I have lost some of that 'happy step' I got when we got Hailey.
If he is in a pissing match and feels he is the only one who will make the decisions so he bumps Chan out that's fine, but you better know what you're doing. I miss the 90's and watching the Chiefs, especially when they beat the Bills while going to College near Buffalo. It would be me and 7-10 Bills fans with abuse flying all over my apartment. Regardless of who won, and it was usually the Chiefs, (until the playoffs) the team was always competetive. I will never blow off the Chiefs if they have a bad play, game or season but this Coach needs to understand the sense of urgency involved here. Sorry, just a little pissed.

Gailey basically turned water to wine last season after he finally convinced Herm to stop playing the "run the ball 1st, 2nd, and most 3rd downs" offense, Hermball, and tried out the pistol spread with Thigpen. From that point on, Thigpen was one of the most productive QBs in the league and our poor offensive line was able to keep Thigpen on his feet a lot more.

I think if we had this year's defensive front seven last year, we would have easily been .500.

I have a lot of respect for Gailey and think he's gotten the short end of the stick for someone that has always been pretty good. He took the Cowboys to the playoffs both years he was coach, then got fired by King Powertrip himself, Jerry Jones.

Is T.J. really contributing to this team more than a high OL pick would? How bout Magee? I understand DL players take a while to develop, but this line needs help RIGHT NOW and O-linemen take a lot less time to contribute than a D-lineman would. If we take TJ, great. Then we should've taken a stud OG or RT in the 3rd. It pisses me off even more that neither of the DEs that we drafted because "we didn't have a 3-4 DE" have YET to unseat either of the DLinemen we already had. ESPECIALLY because "Dorsey can't play 3-4 DE." The longer TJ and Magee run with the 2nd defense, the more upset I get about the O-line.

Well i am undecided about Hailey but I like what i have seen so far. Hes brought displine to this team. Something that has been realy lacking the past few years. Hes not allowing fat out of shape football players on the field. Hes makeing them get in shape to be able to play. Something that he should not be fighting seeing that this is a PRO FOOTBALL team. But its been something that has been allowed over the last few years so the young players thought that they could get away with it. D Bowe came in thinking he could just do enough to get buy like hes been able to do what happend he got put with the 3rd team to light a fire under his rear and it has seemed to work so far. Thats something new for this team and its something that MOST great coaches have in common. Theres teams are not fat and out of shape and they Have DISPLINE. So far i have to like what I have seen. But the fact that he has not yet coached in a REAL GAME always leaves you with questions. Time will tell but so far Hailey gets a passing grade from me.

I could see this coming. It seems as I watched this preseason that there were alot of plays called that didn't make sense. Is he also in charge of the OL?

Either way, you don't call a fade route from the 1 yard line. Should have been a shallow cross or a slant.

I think this is a bad move on the part of Haley. This is his first year ever as a head coach and I don't think he quite knows what he is in for.

I think I would feel a lot better if we had someone else making the calls as two heads in a game that moves as fast as this one does is better than one which is splitting duties.

I hope I am wrong, but when we start seeing a lot of timeouts being called early in the game I think that will be an indication of a problem in coaching.

Why was Gailey even retained to begin with? Haley was hired because of his "offensive expertise" so he should call plays or at least bring in a guy who knows his system.

brish
09-01-2009, 04:48 PM
Bad timing??

I'd rather that Haley do it now than later this year.. The sooner he gets it like he wants it, the sooner we can move forward with "the new chiefs".

Besides in my mind Haley is a bit of a quiet superstar when it comes to play calling and making adjustments. I've watched a few of Arizona's games from last year, and obviously the superbowl.
They made it to the superbowl with a mediocre D (they did improve massively in the offseason though), and a pretty one dimensional offense (Arizona's "Luftwaffe" if you will :P)
Yet they still managed to beat some of the best defences out there..

One thing immediately springs to mind, the "resurrection" of Fitzgerald in the superbowl. He was completely non-existant the entire first half. The halftime corrections that Haley dished out clearly worked, and got their offense rolling again.
I specifically remember Haley talking (very animated) to Fitzgerald about something (im guessing he saw a chink in the steel armor), and on the very next play Fitzgerald splits Pittsburgs D down the middle for a huge gain.

Chan Gailey is a very good coach, he showed that last year, he had grapes yet he still made limonade.
He is however quite conservative, where Haley is very aggressive. This is probably why Herm (also very conservative) hired him.

Our new defence is going to be alot more aggressive, because that is how Haley likes it, so why shouldn't our offense be so too.
That doesn't mean we have the talent or weapons to do it perfectly at this point in time. But why put off until tomorrow what you can do today?

My biggest concern is that Haley can't handle it all, and burns out or something.. But he has a lot of experience around him, so I think it will work out.

Man what a wall of text that became..

Go Chiefs!

I don't see why so many people are shocked by this news. Haley said when Chan was given the OC position that it was basically a "for now" type of deal. Obviously Haley didn't like the playcalling and decided to go a different route. Also according to LJ the two were constantly arguing during practice about how the offense was going to be ran.
Gailey did an admirable job last year and has earned a ton of respect over his whole career but Haley just wanted to go a different direction.
As far as the timing of it. WHO CARES? It isn't like the playbook has changed only who is calling the plays. They aren't going to have to learn a whole new system or anything.
