Now that it appears the Three Musketeers from kingdom of Foxboro are going to be reunited in Middle America, there are some things that you need to know about the last man to join the crusade.
Romeo Crennel is named after Shakespeare’s Romeo. Really, he is. He even has a sister named Juliet.
It’s just one of the little things we’ve learned about the man who will soon be announced as the team’s new defensive coordinator.
The Chiefs have agreed to contract terms with their new defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel, although they will have to wait a couple of weeks for him to get to work.
Crennel is committed to coaching in the East-West college all-star game in Orlando, Fla., on Jan. 23. After that, Crennel will join the Chiefs full-time to replace Clancy Pendergast.
If things go poorly next season, don’t look for Pioli, Weis and Crennel to take the blame. They have nine Super Bowl rings among them. In their mind, they know exactly what it takes to win at the highest level in the NFL.
Whitlock weighs in with some good old fashioned negativity. Did you expect anything less from Big Sexy?
Haley either has no political savvy, no interest in playing the kind of politics that enhances a coach’s longevity or zero leverage when putting together a coaching staff.
Given the previous working relationship of Pioli, Weis and Crennel — and Weis’ oversized ego — it would be a seamless transition for Pioli to install Weis as head coach midway through the 2010 season or at the start of 2011.
Anyone remember Emmitt Thomas? It was less than two years ago that he was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame for his 13 year career as a defensive back for the Kansas City Chiefs.
He’s been working as an assistant coach since then, namely as the Falcons assistant head coach/secondary coach. Today, the Falcons announced he would not be returning.
