KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) -- The Chiefs are in discussions with Brian Daboll to become their new offensive coordinator.

Team spokesman Ted Crews told The Associated Press on Saturday that Daboll has not been hired, but the two sides remain in discussions. Daboll could be introduced as soon as Monday.

Daboll would take over for Bill Muir, who announced his retirement Wednesday.

Coach Romeo Crennel had already interviewed candidates for offensive coordinator before Muir's retirement. Others known to have interviewed were former Raiders offensive coordinator Al Saunders and Chiefs quarterbacks coach Jim Zorn.

Daboll spent last season directing the Dolphins' offense. He also spent two seasons as the Browns' offensive coordinator, and was an assistant coach with Crennel in New England.
