According to NFL.com’s Steve Wyche, the Kansas City Chiefs are expected to retain general manager Scott Pioli despite a disastrous season, according to a source briefed on the situation. Coach Romeo Crennel won’t be as fortunate. The source said Crennel likely will be fired, although no final decision has been made on the coach’s future. Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has strong feelings for Pioli and wants to give him another shot to get things right, the source said. It certainly looks like Pioli is a lock to come back, but head coach Romeo Crennel won’t be as fortunate.   Need NFL Tickets? var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

  • Clark Hunt had better plan on about 70,000 empty seats at the Chiefs games next year.
  • If the Hunt family doesnt care about the Chiefs, then sell the team to somebody who does. This is an insult to Kansas City and all the chiefs fans out there.
  • It doesn't matter if we have disastrous seasons the dumb fans will still pay to go to the games and the season ticket holders will still renew their seats. Since that will continue Clark Hunt won't to do anything about this mess. When he stops making money, he might.
