Chiefs hire new running backs coach

Chiefs hire new running backs coach

The Kansas City Chiefs formally announced on Friday that the franchise has hired Deland McCullough as the team's new running backs coach.

McCullough was considered one of the Trojans' top assistant coaches and had a hand in running back Ronald Jones' development. He spent several years at the University of IN as their running backs coach before hitting USC this past year, and he helped tutor stars like Jordan Howard and Tevin Coleman IN the process.

Though the Trojans have lost Ronald Jones II to the National Football League, up-and-comer Stephen Carr was USC's second-leading rusher as a true freshman despite missing four games with a foot injury.

Michael O'Neill set for talks over Scotland manager's job
MICHAEL O'NEILL will hold talks with the SFA this week after a compensation package with the Northern Irish FA was agreed. This would include a lucrative bonus for ending a major finals wait which stretches back to 1998.

Prior to the one-year pit stop with the Pac-12 affiliate, McCullough dazzled at IN, showing he can groom running backs. Most notably, running backs Tevin Coleman who rushed for over 2,000 yards in 2014, and Jordan Howard who rushed for over 1,000 yards in both 2016 and 2017. Current Chiefs running back Spencer Ware is certainly a fan.

Now, McCullough gets to work with a tailback holding huge potential in Kareem Hunt, who's off a red-hot rookie season.

The new-look Chiefs offense from this past season broke out of its once-methodical shell to post 25.9 points per game, good for No. 6 in the NFL. By that evening, a reported deal had already been worked out per Terez Paylor, writer for the Kansas City Star.
