KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Feb. 7, 2006) -- The Kansas City Chiefs hired David Gibbs as secondary coach and Jon Embree as tight ends coach.
Gibbs, the defensive coordinator for Auburn last year, coached the defensive backs for the Denver Broncos from 2001-04. Embree, a former UCLA assistant the last three years, played at Colorado and spent 10 years there as an assistant coach.
New Chiefs coach Herm Edwards was hired last month to replace Dick Vermeil, who retired on Jan. 1 after the Chiefs finished 10-6 and missed the playoffs. The former New York Jets coach retained five of Vermeil's assistants, including defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham and offensive coordinator Mike Solari.
