    Come on find the Bill Parcells connection! :D

    Nice. Running backs coach of the Chiefs the last 7 years. Not a bad pickup.

    WR Coach- Karl Dorrell
    OL Coach- Mike Maser

    DC- Todd Bowles (Hired but position unconfirmed)

    The one guy some are overlooking is the Strength & Conditioning coach.... THIS is an important postion to Parcells.... Parcells emphasized off season conditioning and never underestimated its importance with any team he has been a head coach with. He very much believes the off-season conditoning makes the difference in preventing injuries during the later part of the football season.
    Evan Markus I actually met through a friends brother who played football with him at Ithaca College in upstate NY. I believe he was an offensive tackle on their 88' national championship team... As far as I heard he was a strength coach somewhere in Texas, maybe for the univ. of Texas? I don't know if he was affiliated with the Cowboys at all? Thought I'd just throw that out there.....

    I always found it odd that our head strength coach, Matt Schiotz, was smaller than most kickers. Look at our new one, now HE looks like a strength coach.

    Dan Huenning. Not official yet, but looks likely. Same goes with Dorrell as WRs coach.

    I'm willing to bet we will never see a preseason approach like the one we had last year. I still can't believe the uninspired attitude, and atmosphere that was prevalent last year.

    What I am impressed with Parcells is how fast he is working,everyday a new hire he seems to be 2 steps ahead of everybody. In atlanta they still havent hired head coach,our whole staff is almost in place.

    Hoffman is actually the kicking coach and works mostly with the punter and placekicker. He has long been considered one of the best kicking coaches in the country. Even has his own website :up:

    I'm optimistic about Saxon in regards to helping Ronnie become even better.

    Not saying it was all Saxon's doing, but if you recall Priest Holmes was a FA in Baltimore and there wasn't exactly a line going around the block of other teams to sign him--he wanted to be a starter. (He was in Miami for a visit, and we passed on him, because we allegedly thought he'd be a fine #2 back.) So he goes to KC and sets the world on fire for a couple of years. Gonzales was obviously great but they never had decent WRs to help out by spreading the defense. Larry Johnson flourished with Saxon as his RB coach, as well.

    I remember when Saxon played for Miami from 1992-1994, and when we signed him a lot of Chiefs fans had good things to say about him, and wished he was going to finish his career with them. I wonder if Trent Green helped him land in Miami this go round.

    thats good to hear, i really don't have much knowledge of saxon but its certainly hard to miss the fact that priest an larry johnson have been outstanding backs. i'm definately optimistic and hope saxon comes here and really helps our boys. i just feel ronnie was on track last season and i think jackson had a lot to do with it
