Jeff Fisher Called 'Must-Hire' For Kansas City Chiefs As New Head Coach

The Kansas City Chiefs are looking for a new head coach. Whether or not they remove the interim tag from Romeo Crennel or find a new head coach will not be known by anyone until after Crennel's end of season audition is finished. However, that doesn't stop the conjecture of people like Fox Sports' Nick Athan, who says that former Titans coach Jeff Fisher is a must for the Chiefs if he will say yes.

Athan writes, "Per our source, Hunt is prepared to pay whatever it takes to land one of the premier coaching candidates. That includes Fisher. But does Fisher want to coach the Chiefs? He’d be a fool not to. Of all the coaching vacancies open now or in the near future, Kansas City is poised for long-standing success.

"With plenty of starters returning on both sides of the ball next year, a ton of cash to spend in free agency and quite likely a last place schedule in 2012, the Chiefs might even be favored to win the AFC West next year. The rebuilding process in Kansas City is nearly over. Right now it’s a matter of Hunt, Pioli and, hopefully, Fisher, getting this team ready to take the next step. With the lockout behind us, they’ll enjoy a normal offseason."

Fisher's career record is 142-120 in 17 years as an NFL head coach.
