5 Reasons for Kansas City Chiefs Fans to Be Excited About Hiring Brian Daboll

The Kansas City Chiefs hired Brian Daboll, and fans could be more excited.

You can't really blame them. Kansas City paraded a series of poor choices for coordinators over the years with little to show. Todd Haley ditched Chan Gailey at the beginning of 2009 and ran things himself.

Charlie Weis came in for a year and the Chiefs quietly promoted Bill Muir, who'd never called plays before despite starting his coaching career in the Johnson administration. The year after he started coaching, Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.

Now with Romeo Crennel running the team, bringing in former Patriots coach Daboll feels like another crony hire; Scott Pioli trying to recapture the lightning in a bottle that let loose in New England the first part of the last decade.

That doesn't even count Daboll's success (or lack thereof) in his last few stops. Miami ranked 20th in offense last year, and Cleveland barely missed being the worst in the league under Daboll's watch. Hours after the Chiefs announced Daboll's hiring, his Wikipedia article spoke in sarcastic tones of his skill and football acumen.

But Kansas City fans should take heart in this hiring; it's a good one, and a better one than could be expected given the names currently out there on the market.

And for those of you asking for one good reason to be excited about Brian Daboll, I'll do even better than that.

I'll give you five.
