Chiefs Head Coaching Search: Reports Conflict On Kansas City's Interest In Josh McDaniels

Arrowhead Pride has a look at the increasingly confusing cloud of rumors around current St. Louis Rams offensive coordinator and former Denver Broncos head coach Josh McDaniels, who may or may not be on the Chiefs' radar as a potential head coach, depending on which report you believe.

Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network has stated - rather emphatically - that McDaniels is not heading to the Chiefs in any capacity, causing the rumor to die down considerably earlier in the week. Contrast that with a report from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch stating that the Patriots and Chiefs have both asked permission to speak to McDaniels (New England presumably to return McDaniels to his old O.C. job, not as head coach).

As the gents at Arrowhead Pride lament, aren't coaching rumors fun?

On the one hand, you have Lombardi, who has broken plenty of Chiefs news, saying this will not happen. He's been reliable in the past and he's clear in saying, "[H]e is not going to KC in any role."

On the other hand, you have a report out of St. Louis that calls McDaniels a "valuable commodity" and furthers the market for him by saying both the Chiefs and Patriots are interested and reaching out to him.
