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.
John Dorsey was introduced on Monday as the new general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs. Though Dorsey has worked with the Green Bay Packers through most of his professional life, he's excited to be in Kansas City for his first general manager's job in the NFL.
The Kansas City Chiefs announced today that Romeo Crennel, the team's 12th coach, has been "relieved of his duties as head coach" after a 2-14 season. This record matches the team's worst in its 53-year history.
The 37-10 blowout loss on Sunday to the New York Jets sealed Todd Haley's fate with the Kansas City Chiefs. Late Monday morning, they announced that Haley was out.
