In what was widely speculated overnight, the Kansas City Chiefs officially fired Head Coach Romeo Crennel Monday morning.
After a 2-14 season, the
Kansas City Chiefs
were swift to make changes within the organization to being to wash away the stench of a miserable season.
Chairman of the Board, Clark Hunt, who made the decision to fire his head coach, released the following statement.
"I have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for Romeo, both personally and professionally,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “He is an accomplished coach, a man of great character and he helped guide our football team through some extremely challenging circumstances this season.
“However, I am embarrassed by the poor product we gave our fans this season, and I believe we have no choice but to move the franchise in a different direction. I will immediately begin the search for the next head coach of the Chiefs. The entire football operation will remain under review, and there may be additional changes to come. No final determination has been made at this point on the future of General Manager Scott Pioli.
“Finally, I want to personally apologize to our fans for our performance this season. We are blessed to play for some of the best and most passionate fans in the National Football League and they deserve better than what we gave them this season. I want our fans to know that I will do everything I can to provide them with a dramatically better team – both next season and in the seasons to come – and our entire organization appreciates their support.”
It’s interesting that Hunt will lead the search for the next head coach. We’re already told that Kansas City has strong interest in speaking with former
. We've also been told that President, Mark Donovan, will assist in the hiring process.
The fate of General Manager, Scott Pioli, per Hunt, has yet to be decided.
With that news, look for Kansas City to reach out to former
General Manager, Tom Heckert, who was fired Monday morning, to gauge his interest about coming to Kansas City as a potential replacement for Pioli - should Hunt decide his fate in the next 72 hours.
