NFL betting lines on Kansas City figure to be a little more exciting next season as the Chiefs are set to hire former Notre Dame head football coach Charlie Weis as their new offensive coordinator.
The Chiefs were 4-12 straight up this season and 7-9 against the football odds.
NFL betting lines should be a little bit higher next season with Weis running the Kansas City offense. Weis has worked with head coach Todd Haley in the past as they were both assistants with the New York Jets. Weis worked with general manager Scott Pioli when the two were with New England as Weis was the offensive coordinator for the Patriots in their Super Bowl football odds years.
Haley had his struggles in his first year as head coach at Kansas City and part of the problem as NFL betting lines had it was that he had to run the offense. That will no longer be an issue in NFL betting lines with Weis calling the plays. "Charlie’s a guy I have a great amount of respect for as a coach," Haley said, "He’s a coach that system-wise, I would say we’re as close as you can be. Charlie’s a guy I consider a friend and I’ve talked to throughout the year, no different from some of the other guys I lean on for things and advice."
There are likely to be other NFL betting lines changes in Kansas City. Football odds indicate that the team got rid of offensive line coach Joe D’Alessandris and defensive line coach Tim Krumrie. NFL betting lines point to them getting rid of defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast as well. The leading candidate to replace him as NFL betting lines have it would be former Cleveland head coach Romeo Crennel.
The Kansas City offense showed some life late in the NFL betting lines regular season as running back Jamaal Charles ran wild. "I really believe we were able to lay a foundation for the Kansas City Chiefs," Haley said. NFL betting lines have Kansas City looking to upgrade an offense that needs help at wide receiver and at tight end. NFL betting lines indicate that the Chiefs are picking fifth in this year’s NFL Draft.
Kansas City was 25th in the league in total yards this NFL betting lines year. Those football odds stats should improve with Weis as the offensive coordinator.
