Todd Haley Fired: Kansas City Chiefs Will Hold Press Conference This Afternoon

For those wanting to hear some answers to the many questions surrounding Todd Haley’s firing from the Kansas City Chiefs, you’ll get some of them at 2pm CT today when the Chiefs hold their press conference concerning the whole affair. It’s likely that some reasons will be given for both the firing and the timing of it all, but it’s unlikely to yield much in the way of news on new head coaching candidates.

Haley was fired earlier today after the team’s disastrous performance against the New York Jets in a 37-10 loss that wasn’t even that close. Haley went 19-26 in his nearly three full seasons as the Chiefs head coach and was always at odds with the front office on a number of subjects — reportedly ranging from the selection of Tyson Jackson with the No. 3 overall selection in the 2009 draft to the hiring of Charlie Weis as offensive coordinator.

Current names being tossed around to replace Haley include Josh McDaniels, Jeff Fisher and Kirk Ferentz.
