New play caller for Chiefs

Posted by Chris Brown on September 8, 2011 – 9:15 am

The Kansas City Chiefs were thought to have their offense run by head coach Todd Haley following the departure of Charlie Weis in the offseason. But that is not the case.

According to the Kansas City Star, offensive line coach Bill Muir will be handling the play calling duties for the offense this season. What’s interesting about that development is he’s never done it before (outside of this preseason).

On one hand an opponent like the Bills this week might think they could catch him off guard on a few things due to his lack of experience for the pace of the game and having play calls ready. One the other hand there’s no book on what Muir likes and doesn’t like from a play calling perspective… ever.

Week 1 is a bit of a crap shoot to begin with as teams haven’t established tendencies of any kind to this point with all of their new personnel acquired in the offseason. So there are some surprises to adjust to during the course of the game to begin with. Muir is a bit of an enigma in this opener, though it’s likely he had a firm hand guiding him with the game plan this week in Haley.
