Former Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach Todd Haley Releases Statement, Wishes Coaches And Players 'Good Luck' Down The Stretch

Earlier on Monday, the Kansas City Chiefs decided to terminate the contract of head coach Todd Haley. Through his agent, Haley has released a statement. Per the Kansas City Star's Chiefs blog:

"First, I would like to thank Clark Hunt and the kansas city chiefs for giving me the opportunity to coach this historic franchise. Growing up in the NFL, watching my Dad help build those great Pittsburgh Steeler teams, I have a profound love for this league. This opportunity has been a dream come true.

I would like to sincerely thank my coaches and my players for their commitment and loyalty throughout my time with the Chiefs.

i would like to thank all of the great chiefs fans. My wife Chrissy and i would also like to thank the city of Kansas City for welcoming us and our 5 children and making us feel at home.

i am proud to have been a part of continued improvement and the first AFC West title since 2003. This year has been extremely challenging, but despite losing several key players to injury and free agency, we have been able to remain competitive and remain in contention with 3 games remaining in the season. i wish the coaches and players good luck down the stretch.

NFL football is extremely competitive. Being hired and fired is part of this business. i want to thank everyone for their support and i look forward to my next opportunity in this great league."
