Chiefs OC Bill Muir Wants Romeo Crennel To Stay As Head Coach

After leading the Kansas City Chiefs to a stunning 19-14 upset of the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers, interim coach Romeo Crennel is winning fans in the Chiefs locker room. 

Today, Kansas City offensive coordinator Bill Muir said he wanted Crennel to stay on as a permanent replacement for Todd Haley:

 offensive coordinator Bill Muir says he endorses Romeo Crennel to be permanent head coach.

Crennel, a disciple of New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, does have a long-standing relationship with Kansas City GM, and former Patriots exec, Scott Pioli.

And like Belichick, Crennel's first stint as an NFL head coach in Cleveland ended in disappointment, as Crennel went 25-40 in four seasons as the Browns head coach from 2005-2008.

His chances at removing the interim label probably depend on how Kansas City does in the last two weeks in games against division rivals Oakland and Denver, as the 6-8 Chiefs are rather improbably still alive in the AFC West race.
