[Kansas City.com] The Chiefs hired Todd Haley as their head coach in large part because of his offensive creativity. He designed the offense and called plays the last two years for the high-scoring Arizona Cardinals, attracting the attention of new Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli in the process.
Haley will set aside those abilities, at least to start the season. Haley reserved the right to take over later in the season but said Monday that offensive coordinator Chan Gailey would call the plays.
“This wasn’t a decision that was made quickly,” Haley said. “I put a lot of thought into it. Chan will call the plays as I see it right now. This is all part of the learning process of trying to get it right. That’s where we’ll start from, and I would say that’s the way we’ll go into the season.”
“I obviously believe in Chan,” Haley said. “He’s done a great job throughout his time in the NFL and in college. He’s run some very good and very efficient offenses.”
