Scott Pioli Says Romeo Crennel Will Be Among Candidates Considered For Todd Haley's Replacement

The Kansas City Chiefs are now open for a new head coach and it’s clear the impressive defensive performance of the Chiefs this season has Romeo Crennel in a solid spot to be one of the candidates to replace Todd Haley as head coach. The former New England Patriots defensive coordinator is certainly familiar with Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli and he also has head coaching experience while with the Cleveland Browns. Thus not only will Crennel serve as the interim head coach of the Chiefs, but the team’s performance down the stretch might change that interim title.

In a press conference today, Scott Pioli spoke to Crennel’s standing with the team. He said, “We talked with Romeo and he’s going to be someone that we’re definitely talking to. Right now, we’re just trying to take care of today. There are a lot of moving parts right now. We asked Romeo and offered it to him and he accepted. I think it’s safe to say that he’ll be one of the people we’re considering as we move forward.”

Crennel went 24-40 as the head coach of the Browns for four NFL seasons.
