With Chan Gailey gone, the Chiefs need a new offensive coordinator.
With the regular-season opener at Baltimore only 13 days away, they need one quickly.
A perusal of the team’s current coaching staff suggests a prime candidate for the job: Maurice Carthon.
Carthon was hired as an assistant head coach, with no other specific designation. He made the leap from Arizona, with head coach Todd Haley, who was the offensive coordinator with the Cardinals.
Carthon previously served as offensive coordinator in Cleveland, and he has close ties to Bill Parcells, the father-in-law of Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli.
