More importantly, they have a new head coach and a new offensive coordinator for the 2012 season.
Here is the full list of new hires on the Chiefs '12 coaching staff, ranked in order of importance.
Cooter will join the Chiefs in 2012 after serving as an offensive assistant for the Indianapolis Colts for the past three years.
He brings with him a lot of knowledge about the quarterback position, considering that was what he played in his college days at the University of Tennessee.
The Fayetteville, Tennessee, native should be a quality addition to Romeo Crennel's staff next season.
When longtime NFL coach Bill Muir was set to retire earlier this offseason, the Chiefs not only lost an offensive coordinator, but they also lost their offensive line coach.
They wasted no time in hiring former Giants assistant offensive line coach Jack Bicknell Jr. earlier this month.
Bicknell will be working with a young but improving offensive line in 2012, as he hopes to pick up where Muir left off last season.
Derius Swinton has plenty of familiarity with the rest of the new coaching staff.
Swinton worked with Jim Bob Cooter at the University of Tennessee as a grad assistant and has also worked with new special teams coach Tom McMahon as a member of the Rams' organization.
Swinton will bring some youth to the Chiefs' staff and will serve as the first special teams quality control coach in franchise history.
After another mediocre season in the special teams department, the Chiefs decided to make a change this offseason.
They fired special teams coach Steve Hoffman and replaced him with Tom McMahon, who held the same position for the St. Louis Rams for each of the past three seasons.
McMahon has only coached for a total of five years in the NFL, but he has seemed to get the best out of his players in the past.
The Carroll College product could be just the right guy to kick-start a stagnant KC return game.
Heading into this offseason, the Chiefs were in need of a new offensive coordinator to replace the 69-year-old Bill Muir.
They found one in ex-Miami Dolphins OC Brian Daboll.
Daboll is familiar with Chiefs GM Scott Pioli and new head coach Romeo Crennel, after previously working with the pair in New England.
He will likely bring an up-tempo style offense with him to Kansas City as he will look to improve a unit that ranked 31st in the league in scoring just a season ago.
There was no bigger hire than new head coach Romeo Crennel for the Chiefs' organization this offseason.
After weeks of speculation, KC decided to remove the interim tag from Crennel's title and make him the 12th head coach in franchise history.
Crennel brings 30 years of NFL coaching experience with him, including five Super Bowl rings and a previous head coaching stint with the Cleveland Browns from 2005 to 2008.
He won over the Chiefs' locker room last season with his 2-1 performance in the interim role, and he seemed to be the best head coaching candidate for this team going forward when he was hired earlier this offseason.
