Chiefs Shakeup Reported; Dungy Denies Coaching Interest

Posted 1 year ago

By John P Tretbar


According to the Web site KC Sportsnation dot com, the Chiefs are about to dump GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel.

The site quotes what is called “a good source inside Arrowhead that has seen Bill Polian with Clark Hunt with his “own eyes.”

Polian is the former GM of the Indianapolis Colts.

Sportsnation reports the job is Polian’s if he wants it.

The Web site reports Polian would bring his long-time coach Tony Dungy back to KC as the head coach and his son Chris would be the VP and take over when Bill retires.

Since the report, Dungy stated on the Web site Twitter that he isn’t coaching in KC or anywhere else next year.

“We lived in Kansas City 3 years and loved it. I love the Hunt family,” Dungy tweeted, “But I will not be back in coaching, there or anywhere else.”

The source also indicated that most of the current staff has already cleaned out their offices and three assistant coaches have been told not to make the trip to Denver for Sunday’s season finale.

      And why is it that Chiefs FANS are a joke to you, Tammy? That is a pretty bold and kinda rude statement to make. I AM a CHIEFS FAN for life, no matter what, and I can assure you I am NO joke. That is the way it is supposed to be, you stick with your team, through thick and thin, no matter what. Youre probably the type that would claim to be a fan if the team was doing well, to me THOSE people are a JOKE.

      Listen up Tammy I have been a Chiefs fan for 30 + years through the ups & downs I am not in the Chiefs managment so I just have to support the team whatever the front office decisions are. Yes this years team is awful but calling fans names shows you intellingence or lack of so if you don’t have anthing positive to say just keep it to yourself.
