    Default Source: Chan Gailey fired as offensive coordinator

    Source: Chiefs chop Chan Gailey | ProFootballTalk.com

    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.

    You mean this guy?

    Bill Muir, Offensive Line, Kansas City Chiefs

    He certainly has experience.

    Yes, he does have the experience and looks like he wore leather helmets at some point in his life, but we have him for SOME reason this season... either he steps up because he is on the Offensive side or get somebody better (maybe next season) Unless haley thinks he can take on the entire offense

    Well, if it's anything I've learned with our Chiefs in the last three years is that most anything may well be possible, regardless of probabilities.
