Following a search, the Kansas City Chiefs have named Bill Muir as their new offensive coordinator. He was promoted from within.
Muir has been coaching in the NFL for the past 33-years. In fact, he’s the longest-tenured member of the Chiefs coaching staff.
He joined the team two-years ago after spending the past seven-years with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers as their offensive coordinator and offensive line coach. With the Buccaneers, he helped the team win three Division titles, including a Super Bowl XXXVII win over the Oakland Raiders in 2003.
“We are very fortunate to have someone of Bill’s caliber take over the role of offensive coordinator,” Chiefs head coach Todd Haley said. “Bill’s depth of experience, his championship success as a coach and as a coordinator is widely-respected around the league, and he will serve our young and veteran players very well and provide critical continuity as we continue to develop on offense.”
This is not the first-time that Muir and Haley have worked together. In fact, it’s their 10th season that dates back to the 1995 season with the New York Jets. They, along with Chiefs assistant head coach Maurice Carthon, were offensive coaches on the Jets team that advances to the 1998 AFC Conference Championship game.
His hiring is expected to help the Chiefs develop their offensive foundation from the past two seasons under Haley.
“Coach Muir has been a big part of what we’ve been able to do as an offense, so I’m excited about him taking over the coordinator role,” Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel said. “As a quarterback and as an offense, continuity is important, and having someone of Coach Muir’s experience will help us continue to move forward in the right direction.”
