While the Kansas City Chiefs are denying the rumors, it’s
been reported by Nick Wright of 610-AM in Houston that the club has officially
told general manager Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel that they will
not be back for the 2013 season.
From a more than reliable source: Scott Pioli and Romeo Crennel have officially been told they will NOT be back next year. #Chiefs

A league source told Pro Football Talk that Pioli and
Crennel have yet to be told of their fate, but it appears where there’s smoke,
there’s fire on this one. And Pioli and Crennel appear to be headed to that
fire following the season.
The Chiefs are experiencing what some would consider the
worst season in franchise history, as they currently sport a 2-12 record. While
it hasn’t become official yet, you can expect that heads will roll following
this embarrassing campaign.
A similar situation is going on elsewhere in the AFC West,
as Norv Turner and A.J. Smith are likely counting down their final days with
the San Diego Chargers.
