Evening AFC West notes
By Bill Williamson
Kansas City coach Todd Haley indicated in a radio interview that he will decide later in the offseason who’ll call the offensive plays. Haley is expected to call the plays himself, but he won’t commit to it. He promoted offensive line coach Bill Muir to replace the departed Charlie Weis as offensive coordinator.
“We’ve had discussions about a lot of things, play-calling being one of those, but that’s not something that’s been finalized,” Haley said. “As we move along and move through the offseason, some of those things will come clearer into picture. I’m of the belief that the most important thing that you have to have on a staff … is continuity. Not everybody believing the same things, but a continuity of the ability to work together efficiently to come up with ideas.”
- Kansas City assistant coach Emmitt Thomas was inducted into the Texas Sports Hall of Fame on Monday. A former Chiefs’ player, Thomas is in both the Pro Football Hall of Fame and the Chiefs Hall of Fame.
- Oakland cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha is was a runner-up for the NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year award. Minnesota’s Madieu Williams won the award on Sunday.
