Kansas City Chiefs chairman and CEO, Clark HUnt, continued making the media rounds this afternoon. He sat down with Soren Petro of 810 Sports Radio this afternoon.
We jotted down some quotes. Keep in mind this is not the entire transcript.
Any time that you have a year like we’ve had, where you win two games, nobody gets a passing grade. And Scott, he knows that.
There ultimately could be more changes.
On if the head coach will have a say in if Pioli is kept.
I wouldn’t say that. I would say that chemistry is very important. Even though I won’t have one answering to the other, it is very important we have good chemistry in place.
On getting the coaching search started early:
Four years ago when we went through the search process in January we were late.
On a timetable for the new coach hire:
It could happen quickly or it could take several weeks depending on what happens with some candidates that are associated with teams that are in the playoffs.
On the field:
Some of the candidates have the experience they’ve been involved in personnel at some point.
On who he listens to for advice:
I have a lot of friends who have been part of the bus for a long time. I talk to them periodically.
At the end of the day, I have to make the decisions on my own.
On Pioli being retained not being popular with the fans:
I know what the fans want and that is the same thing I want and that’s to win.
On the salary cap and the Chiefs being cheap:
The financial side of it will not hinder us in making a decision.
(on the head coach or players)
We’ll use it. We’ll use it to put a team on the field that will win.
Again I want to apologize to the fans on what we had to endure on the field in 2012.
