The Kansas City Chiefs are starting the New Year heading in a different direction, without their head coach Romeo Crennel. Crennel was relieved of his coaching duties Monday morning, after being the head coach for about a year, after going 2-1 as the clubs interim head coach. He finished this season with a 2-14 regular record. No decision has been made on General Manager Scott Pioli.Here is the statement released by the Kansas City Chiefs:”I have a tremendous amount of respect and admiration for Romeo, both personally and professionally,” Chiefs Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. “He is an accomplished coach, a man of great character and he helped guide our football team through some extremely challenging circumstances this season.”However, I am embarrassed by the poor product we gave our fans this season, and I believe we have no choice but to move the franchise in a different direction. I will immediately begin the search for the next head coach of the Chiefs. The entire football operation will remain under review, and there may be additional changes to come. No final determination has been made at this point on the future of General Manager Scott Pioli.”Finally, I want to personally apologize to our fans for our performance this season. We are blessed to play for some of the best and most passionate fans in the National Football League and they deserve better than what we gave them this season. I want our fans to know that I will do everything I can to provide them with a dramatically better team, both next season and in the seasons to come, and our entire organization appreciates their support.”
