Romeo Crennel New Chiefs Head Coch

Scott Pioli was hired as General Manager for the Kansas City Chiefs in 2009. Pioli is a guy who knows how to build great teams and worked hand in hand with Bill Belichick in creating the New England Patriots dynasty. He is one of the best in the business. As the Chiefs web site quotes Pioli:

My job is not to collect talent, it’s to build a team...Individuals make Pro Bowls, teams win championships. That’s our goal here. Win championships, win football games — to build this team with the right kind of people, with the right kind of players, to consistently compete for championships.

Pioli and the Chiefs parted company with Head Coach Todd Haley on December 12 2011. Today, the Chiefs announced the promotion of Romeo Crennel, the Chiefs defensive coordinator, to the position of head coach. Crennel took over as head coach for the last three games of the season and managed wins against Denver and the unbeaten Green Bay Packers. Highly respected by his players and having worked with Pioli before in New England, Crennel was a natural choice. Crennel has prior head coaching experience with the Browns and by moving up to Head Coach, the Chiefs should be able to build off the system they have been developing under Pioli since 2009. By making this head coaching change early in the year, the Chiefs will have more time to establish other coaching positions and manage player personnel needs and issues.
