Back in 1988, Chiefs owner Lamar Hunt hired Peterson to handle the club's team president duties from Jack Steadman and general manager duties from Jim Schaff. Twenty years later, the Chiefs organization was quite successful under Peterson's reign, as the Chiefs' record was 176-141-1 and qualified for the NFL playoffs nine times.
