KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - The Chiefs are in discussions with Brian Daboll to become their new offensive coordinator.
Daboll would take over for Bill Muir, who announced his retirement Wednesday.
Daboll has connections to Crennel and Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli after spending time in New England, where Daboll coached wide receivers and Crennel was defensive coordinator.
Daboll would be taking over a potentially potent offense in Kansas City.
The Chiefs still managed to play themselves into a position to defend their AFC West title despite struggling on offense. But their playoff hopes were dashed when they managed only 13 points in an overtime loss to Oakland in the penultimate game of the season.
