Chiefs add Mike Kafka to coaching staff

The last time we mentioned Mike Kafka as an NFL player on this site was when he signed with the Bengals late in the 2015 season to provide them with depth in the wake of an injury to quarterback Andy Dalton.

That will stand as his last mention as an NFL player as Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that the Chiefs have hired Kafka as an offensive quality control coach.

Kafka was drafted out of Northwestern in the fourth round of the 2010 draft by the Eagles, so he has a relationship with Andy Reid that dates back a while at this point. Kafka spent two years in Philly and went 11-of-16 for 107 yards and two interceptions during four regular season appearances. He spent time with the Patriots, Jaguars, Buccaneers, Vikings and Titans before his brief stint with the Bengals, but never saw any other action.

Kafka spent the 2016 season as a graduate assistant with Northwestern.

    The backups spend alot of the time with coaches on the sideline, the backups are also usually intelligent players who lack certain intangibles the starters have. Andy Reid may suck at managing a clock but hes a offensive wizard. If he thinks Kafka is a good hire then he may be a QB coach in the league in a few years.

    Kafka spent part of the 2013 season scuttling around behind Bill Belichick’s mini-fridge.

    huh. And here I was thinking that only the Rams’ offense was Kafkaesque.

    This should give the Chiefs a kafkaesque look, and aid in Der Process of improving the offense.
