Schefter: Romeo Crennel Fired Today

ESPN Insider Adam Schefter said today on Mike and Mike in the Morning that he believes Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel will be fired today.

There have been multiple reports that the Chiefs would part with Crennel. I have yet to see a single report that KC is considering retaining Crennel.

As for GM Scott Pioli, the situation appears to be undecided. We’ve seen a few reports that Pioli will be retained. Yesterday Schefter reported that Pioli’s fate was “leaning out.”

I would imagine that if Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt is going to part with Pioli, he will do it at the same time as Crennel. If Crennel is indeed being let go today, we should hear about Pioli’s fate as well.

One interesting thing to consider is whether or not Crennel might stay on the coaching staff as the defensive coordinator. If Pioli is kept, he may want Romeo to stay on board in some capacity. Then again, if a new head coach is being brought in, he will likely want to hire his own staff. It’s a very slim chance that Crennel sticks around as DC but if Pioli is still in charge I don’t think we can rule it out.

Stay tuned. Answers could be coming this morning.

    I for one cannot wait til this Pioli nightmare is over.

    Hopefully if Poili gets the boot they will bring in a veteran GM to help make a winner.

    Someone please explain to me why Crennel would get fired as HC and then be given DC? The defense has the all pro players (do not kill the messenger) and cannot stop the Little sisters of the poor. With no offense, he is one lousy DC.
    What do we do if Pioli stays, McDaniel as HC?, OT in first round?, Free agents run out of town? Guess for all his smarts and gene pool, Clark does not have a clue.

  • Danny W

    I want them both completely gone.

    Ok so who do we want now? Andy Reid? Lovie Smith? Ken Wisenhunt? Norv Turner at OC might be good.
