Kansas City Chiefs Will Have Romeo Crennel Coordinate Defense

The Kansas City Chiefs will look to carry over their end of year success on the defensive side of the ball into 2012, as general manager Scott Pioli said he expects newly installed head coach Romeo Crennel to double as the team’s defensive coordinator.

"I’m not sure if he stated it publicly, but I get the sense Romeo wants to be the coordinator on defense," Pioli said while attending the Senior Bowl. "I don’t know if he’s made the absolute final decision, but I’m pretty sure that’s the way he wants to go."

Crennel handled both duties for the final three games last season after replacing fired Chiefs coach Todd Haley. The Chiefs won two of their last three, including hanging the first loss on the undefeated and defending Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers on week 15. The Chiefs allowed just 11 points/game under Crennel's leadership.
