The Kansas City Chiefs have fired general manager Scott Pioli after four disastrous seasons. With Pioli at the helm of the franchise, the Chiefs went 23-41 over the last four seasons.

Aside from his Pro Bowl year of 2010, Cassel never threw for more than 16 touchdowns or 3000 yards in a season despite having playmakers like Dwayne Bowe and Jamaal Charles on the roster.
