On the first day of a four-day period during which every team does some football business in Indianapolis, the Chiefs have taken care of some front-office business.
The Chiefs have announced that Trip MacCracken has been named the team’s Director of Football Administration. Also, Mike Clark has been hired as the franchise’s strength and conditioning coach.
Clark has served as strength and conditioning coach in Seattle from 2004 through 2009. He arguably took part of the fall for a couple of years of persistent injury issues, which could potentially be blamed on overall player strength and conditioning.
MacCracken spent the last 11 years with the Browns, in various roles. He has a law degree from Duke.
And for those of you with adolescent mindsets who are curious about such matters, we’re in the process of finding out whether Trip’s real name is “Phil.” Not because we want to cater to your adolescent mindsets, but because our own adolescent mindset made us curious, too.
