Bengals, Chiefs fill offensive coordinator spots

Posted by Andy Benoit

Hours after the Cincinnati Bengals announced that Jay Gruden (brother of Jon) will be their new offensive coordinator, ESPN’s Chris Mortensen is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs are tabbing offensive line coach Bill Muir to fill their vacant offensive coordinator position.

Gruden had been the head coach of the UFL Virginia Destroyers.

Prior to coming to Kansas City to instruct the offensive line, Muir served as the Bucs’ offensive coordinator (and line coach) from 2002-2008.  Muir's duties as Kansas City's OC will be minimal, as head coach Todd Haley figures to run the offense. Muir was in a similar situation working under Jon Gruden in Tampa Bay.

Hot Routes 1.17.11 "big name" headed to Carolina?

Hot Routes

The Broncos officially named eight coaches to their staff, including holdovers Mike McCoy (offensive coordinator) and Eric Studesville (interim head coach after Josh McDaniels firing; once again the running back coach).

Gruden could be joining the Panthers as an offensive assistant. Jay Gruden, that is.


The Patriots and Falcons staffs will coach the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl squads. “We’ll scout the golfing,” Bill Belichick said of the opportunity.


Dennis Byrd, a former Jets player who was paralyzed in 1992 during a game, addressed Rex Ryan’s squad Saturday night. Not a dry eye in the room, it sounds like.


Bears TE Greg Olsen played decently Sunday.


Darryl Talley is upset that Vince Young disrespected him. But honestly, we don’t quite know why he’d care.

Charlie Weis has left town, but Matt Cassel’s tutor, assistant Nick Sirianni, is still around.


Charles Woodson on the Chicago Bears: “They’re in the way.” Nice.


Remember David Pollack? Cincinnati’s first-round linebacker in 2005 who was sensational in 16 games before neck problems ended his career? He’s a sportscaster now.


Needing a replacement for Rob Ryan, the Cleveland Browns are awaiting an interview with lightning rod (OK...just regular rod) defensive coach Dick Jauron.


Nnamdi Asomugha says it’s not out of the question that he’ll return to the Raiders.


Can you believe Mark Sanchez’s four road playoff wins is an NFL all-time record? (More shocking: one of the players Sanchez shares the record with is Jake Delhomme!)


Special teams coach Danny Smith is returning to the Washington Redskins.
