 With reports now surfacing that Chiefs offensive coordinator Charlie Weis is expected to take the job as the University of Florida's offensive coordinator, there is an equal amount of speculation that former Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels will soon take over as the Chiefs' offensive coordinator. 

It would be an unusual game of coaching musical chairs, but not an illogical one. Consider: Weis had connections in Kansas City with Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli from their days of working together with Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. And McDaniels also has a strong familiarity with Pioli, as well as Chiefs quarterback Matt Cassel. 

McDaniels was the Patriots' offensive coordinator when Cassel led the Patriots to an 11-5 record in 2008, the year Tom Brady suffered a season-ending knee injury in the first game of the season. Oh, and the team the Patriots played that day - the Chiefs.
