Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt reportedly met with former head coach Marty Schottenheimer about the team's general manager position.
The Kansas City Chiefs are reportedly looking in to the team's past to guide the team's future. DeeAnn Smith of KCTV writes that Chiefs owner Clark Hunt met with former head coach Marty Schottenheimer about the team's general manager position despite the fact that current general manager Scott Pioli is still with the team.
Smith cited a Sirius/XM NFL Radio report that placed Schottenheimer at Arrowhead Stadium Friday for a meeting with Hunt. According to the report, the Chiefs denied that Schottenheimer was at Arrowhead, but didn't specify whether or not the two parties have met in recent weeks.
The Chiefs are 1-7 overall and have lost five straight games. The team has struggled all season long to put points on the board, shuffling between quarterbacks Matt Cassel and Brady Quinn. Schottenheimer coached the team from 1989-1998, leading the Chiefs to a 101-58 record during that time.
The Chiefs will be in the national spotlight this weekend, as they head visit Heinz Field to play the Pittsburgh Steelers Monday night. Kickoff for that game is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CT on ESPN.
