Kansas City Chiefs Considering Hiring Former Houston Texans OC

The Kansas City Chiefs are replenishing their coaching staff following their Super Bowl LVII win, and that could mean hiring a recently ousted offensive coordinator. According to NFL Insider Josina Anderson, the team is considering hiring former Houston Texans OC Pep Hamilton.

The Chiefs are in need of a new offensive coordinator following the departure of Eric Beiniemy. Matt Nagy had been initially tabbed as the heir apparent, but the Chiefs poking around Hamilton suggests that isn't set in stone. It's possible the Chiefs will consider Hamilton in a lesser role. He has served as a quarterbacks coach at various points in his career.

Hamilton was let go by the Texans following a disastrous season that saw the team finish 30th in points scored and 31st in yards gained. He previously served as the Indianapolis Colts' OC from 2013 to 2015 to middling success, peaking with a 2014 season that saw the team finish third in yards gained and sixth in points scored.

Whoever ends up with the OC title, the Chiefs will be just fine. They finished first in yards gained and points scored last year and won their second Super Bowl in four years. So long as Andy Reid is calling plays and Patrick Mahomes is throwing the passes, the Chiefs will be a powerhouse.
