So this is why they call it “Black Monday.” Per Football Weekly:
Monday was D-Day in the Chiefs’ scouting department, as the vast majority of the staff was released by GM Scott Pioli, according to multiple sources.
Most of the Kansas City’s existing staff knew they were on borrowed time when Pioli was hired to replace Carl Peterson earlier this year, but they were kept on to at least get the club through draft weekend. Now that those duties are over, the axe has reportedly fallen on multiple holdovers from the old regime.
Pioli now will look to bring in his own staff of scouts, a younger group that shares his vision when it comes to evaluating and selecting talent.
Wow, use them and lose them, huh? Sound Off, Addicts!
