Head Coach Todd Haley
What did Todd Haley put in the water in Kansas City? Whatever it is, it’s working.
In his first year as head coach, the Chiefs had a ghastly record of 4-12. The blame for this cannot be placed solely Haley. The blame goes to the former Head Coach Herm Edwards. With under-developed players, an uninventive playbook, and terrible drafting, the team struggled through three rough years with a combined record of 15-33.
Todd Haley did not have a small task on hand when he took this job, but he has really come through. This season, his team has more wins this year than the last two years, and with three more wins, will surpass the year before that as well!
A brilliant draft back in April, that gave Kansas City such big names as Eric Berry, Toni Moeaki, and Dexter McCluster is something that Chiefs fans have not seen since the Schottenheimer days. While Haley is looking like the Coach of the Year right now, he has to give some credit to the coordinators. I have already talked about the offense and the defense and the reason that they are playing so well is offensive coordinator Charlie Wiess and defensive coordinator Romeo Crenell. With these additions to the coaching staff, the team has come into its own and is starting to look like a serious contender.
