On the field, the Kansas City Chiefs are on a roll with five victories in a row. In the courtroom, however, the Chiefs haven’t fared as well lately — they’re fighting an age discrimination lawsuit.

Unless it’s settled out of court, the case, which reaches the very top of the Chiefs’ hierarchy, is a long way from reaching a resolution.

In 2010, Chiefs’ fans watched quarterback Matt Cassel and wide receiver Dwayne Bowe on the field. Meanwhile, Steve Cox, a maintenance supervisor at Arrowhead Stadium, put in long, behind-the-scenes hours.

With the hiring of General Manager John Dorsey and head coach Andy Reid, the Kansas City Chiefs are ushering in what they hope will be more successful days ahead.  The changes officially close the curtain on the tumultuous, four-year Scott Pioli era.

The Kansas City Chiefs have announced that general manager Scott Pioli is no longer with the football team.
