The Kansas City Chiefs have finalized their coaching staff.

Many of the new additions have already been announced. Here are the new additions to Romeo Crennel’s staff: Jack Bicknell Jr. (offensive line), Jim Bob Cooter (offensive quality control), Brian Daboll (offensive coordinator), Tom McMahon (special teams coach) and Derius Swinton (special teams quality control).

Offensive quality control coach Nick Sirianni was promoted to wide receivers coach. Here are the other coaches who were retained from Todd Haley’s staff: Maurice Carthon (assistant head coach), Mike Clark (strength & conditioning), Gary Gibbs (linebackers), Bernie Parmalee (tight ends), Anthony Pleasant (defensive line), Brent Salazar (assistant strength & conditioning), Otis Smith (defensive quality control), Emmitt Thomas (defensive backs), Adam Zimmer (defensive assistant/assistant linebackers) and Jim Zorn (quarterbacks).

“We were able to add a handful of strong additions to an already talented group of coaches, and I am excited to get started,” Crennel said in a statement. “I am looking forward to sitting down as a staff, evaluating what we have, what we need and moving forward towards the 2012 season.”

This announcement formally means Crennel will serve as his own defensive coordinator. He had said he was leaning toward it. Crennel was the defensive coordinator in Kansas City the past two years and the unit was playing at a high level at the end of last season.

The key moves here are the hiring of Daboll and the fact that Carthon and Zorn were retained. The Chiefs’ defense is in good coaching shape, but Crennel needs to rely on his offensive coaches. Daboll has a history with Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel and Carthon and Zorn know the team well. I think there is a nice mix on this staff.
