The Kansas City Chiefs have been exploring ways to use the pistol formation during the offense and recruited help from Chris Ault as a consultant, former coach of the University of Nevada. The team ran a bunch of plays out of the formation during OTAs and running back Jamaal Charles thinks it is going to be a big part of the offense. Charles enjoyed running out of the ‘pistol’ formation and he had been exposed to the offense when former OC Chan Gailey was running the offense in 2008. “I ran it my rookie year and I love it. Everything about this offense,” Charles said, via Josh Alper of Profootballtalk.com. “I ain’t never been around no offense that’s about to be explosive and about to put me in space and making me make plays. I’m glad to be in the pistol. I’m glad I see Frank Gore had success with the 49ers. If he can have success, I hope I can have success as well.”
