We’ve already heard that the Chiefs plan to have a quarterback competition this offseason, but the name of the man who will oversee that battle remains a mystery.
A report from Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network sheds some light on who that man might be. La Canfora reports that the team is considering Brian Daboll, Jim Zorn and Al Saunders for their vacancy at offensive coordinator.
Zorn is already on Romeo Crennel’s coaching staff as the team’s quarterbacks coach. Zorn has never been an offensive coordinator, outside of a brief period with the Redskins when he was hired to be their coordinator before winding up as their head coach when Daniel Snyder decided to elevate him to the top job. Kansas City denied the Bears a chance to talk to Zorn about an opening in Chicago earlier this week.
Daboll was Miami’s offensive coordinator last season and ran Cleveland’s offense for Eric Manigni in 2009 and 2010. He was an assistant with in New England while Crennel and Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli were still working for the Patriots. Saunders was the Raiders’ offensive coordinator last season, but he’s out of that job with Greg Knapp coming to Oakland. He ran the Chiefs offense from 2001-2005 as part of a long career that’s featured stops all over the NFL.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
