Nice fact from Florio on the local ESPN affiliate, for 14 years the teams Chan Gailey were involved with went on to the post season. That streak was broken during his stint with a rebuilding Chiefs team. This makes it look like a better move for a team that's been out of the playoffs for more than a dozen years themselves.
Success in the post season.. not so much, but a decent first step.
Brian Billick isn't happy with the hire...
"Why [G.M. Buddy Nix] had not called a coach with a Super Bowl ring, 10 wins a year for nine years, having orchestrated the highest-scoring offense and defense in the history of the league, is a question worth asking," Billick said, per WGRZ
