Romeo Crennel To Be Officially Introduced As Chiefs Head Coach Monday Afternoon

The Kansas City Chiefs will officially announce Romeo Crennel as their next head coach at a 1 p.m. CT press conference today, ending speculation that Crennel, the interim coach after Kansas City fired Todd Haley, would become the permanent replacement.

Under Crennel, the Chiefs upset two playoffs teams - the previously undefeated Green Bay Packers, and in the last week of the season, the eventual AFC West Champion Denver Broncos. Crennel, the team's defensive coordinator for two seasons under Haley after his own run as head coach of the Cleveland Browns, became popular among Chiefs players, who strongly voiced their support for Crennel while the organization interviewed outside candidates like Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin and former Tennessee Titans head coach Jeff Fisher.

The first move under Crennel might have already been made - replacing his former post of defensive coordinator with current Chiefs linebacker coach Gary Gibbs.
