Chiefs OC Job Down to Three Possible Names

The Chiefs have a couple of names out there for their new offensive coordinator spot.

The team is considering Brian Daboll, Al Saunders and Jim Zorn for the position according to reports.

Daboll began his NFL coaching career with the New England Patriots as a defensive coaching assistant in 2000 before being promoted to wide receivers coach for the Patriots in 2002. After the 2006 season, he left the Patriots to serve as the Jets’ quarterbacks coach. In 2009, Daboll joined Eric Mangini’s staff in Cleveland as offensive coordinator. Daboll was named Offensive Coordinator of the Miami Dolphins under Tony Sparano in 2011.

Saunders was hired as the Offensive Coordinator for the Raiders under Hue Jackson. Saunders was not the primary play caller, as Head Coach Hue Jackson called offensive plays during his lone season as Raiders head coach. He was replaced by Greg Knapp when Dennis Allen was hired.

Zorn was hired last February as the Chiefs QB coach. He was a former head coach with the Washington Redskins, going 12-20 in two seasons with the Redskins before being fired in January 2010.
