    Default Chiefs will retain Chan Gailey

    Adam Schefter reported that the Chiefs denied Tampa Bay authorization to talk to Chan Gailey.

    It is apparent that they Chiefs do not want to let go of his services.

    Now for some speculation. Some think the next HC is already named, and is confortable with Chan as his OC. The next speculation step is keeping Chan as interim HC for a year until the ideal HC is availale, or Chan could be that dark horse.

    There is also a friend of a friend of a friend rumor that the Chiefs are going to retain Herm as lead scout. Herm himself has been quoted as saying he was interested in getting into the business side of football. Given that, I would still think he would be at the Senior Bowl.

    Good for Chan. A nice guy and good OC. I don't see Gailey as a long term coaching solution, but after seeing how the offense overachieved for him in 2008, I'm more than OK with his being our HC in 2009.

    Also, it probably means we stick with Thigpen for 2009, and that we don't draft a QBOTF in this draft.

    Tell me where Chan has been a successful HC? He is another Norv Turner. Great OC, not so good HC.

    We do not need that.

    This might cause Cowher rumors to resurface. When we first hired Gailey there was a lot of talk about how it will make it easier to make a pitch to Cowher in 09 if Herm faltered in 08.

    Gailey was a OC under Cowher and they are supposed to be close. Why would we decide to retain Gailey before we have even announced what we are doing with a HC situation?

    What? Because I liked his inventiveness as an OC. Also, Cowher, who I believe to be a man of his word, has said many times that he isn't doing anything until after the '09 season.

    I agree that it is highly unlikely, but people change their minds about things all the time. I am sure he meant what he said when he said it.

    I do think hanging on to Gailey probably means we are going to stick with Thigpen though. Gailey is responsible for making Thigpen a respectable QB prospect.

    I like Thigpen. I think they should give him one more season to see what he can do. It will give Gailey a whole offseason to build around his talents.

    I would love to see Cowher change his mind, I just don't think it will happen. I think it will be Haley, but that is just my gut feeling.

    Also don't think there is anyway Herm stays on for scouting. I could be way wrong though, because you would think he would be wanting to know something soon so he could figure out what he is going to be doing in the future.
