Todd Haley Fired: Chiefs Name Defensive Coordinator Romeo Crennel Interim Coach, According To Report

The Kansas City Chiefs will name current defensive coordinator and former Cleveland Browns head coach Romeo Crennel interim head coach for the team's remaining three games, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Crennel was 24-40 in his four years as the Browns' head coach, and was hired by the Chiefs in 2010 to serve as defensive coordinator, joining his former New England general manager Scott Pioli, along with then offensive coordinator Charlie Weis, another former Patriot.

Crennel's name was not among those listed by the media as rumored candidates for the replacement of fired head coach Todd Haley.
