Interesting. Koetter comes from the Atlanta Falcons where Scott Pioli’s good friend, Thomas Dimitroff is the GM. For those hoping Pioli will be let go, this is not a good sign. Adam Schefter of ESPN has reported that the Chiefs’ new head coach will have a say in Pioli’s future. The fact that the first candidate to have his name leaked was hired by one of Pioli’s closest friends doesn’t exactly inspire confidence that the GM is on his way out.
Despite the fact that the Falcons are in the playoffs, the Chiefs have been granted to interview Koetter on Tuesday. Atlanta is on a bye this week.
