Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher shot his girlfriend multiple times around 8 a.m. Saturday, drove to the team's training facility, thanked coaches for supporting him, walked away and shot himself in the head, police said.
Matt Cassel is out and Brady Quinn is in as starting quarterback for the Kansas City Chiefs. Coach Romeo Crennel made the announcement on Monday.
Crennel emphasized that he is not blaming Cassel for the team's failures, but says no other changes would have had as broad an impact. He said he made the change that would change the dynamic of the team the most.
