Pro Football Talk is reporting that though the Kansas City Chiefs have yet to announce the fate of GM Scott Pioli, Pioli has not yet been notified of his fate.
Per a league source, Pioli has yet to hear from owner Clark Hunt regarding Pioli’s future.
Interesting. I wouldn’t be shocked if Hunt is waiting to make a move so that he can gauge the initial field of potential GM candidates. It is “Black Monday” after all. Men are losing their jobs left and right. It may be that Hunt is keeping Pioli around as a backup plan in case his real target is not fired or not interested.
It might not be out of the realm of possibility that Hunt is working the phones right now, seeing who is available/interested.
Or he may just be having his interns prepare a press release announcing Crennel’s firing and his commitment to Pioli.
