Romeo Crennel Will Be The Next Kansas City Chiefs Head Coach, According To Report

The Kansas City Chiefs are apparently ready to end their coaching search, as the man who came in for a struggling Todd Haley and gained the love of the Chiefs locker room is now the head coach. Romeo Crennel will be the next head coach of the Chiefs, according to a report.

Chiefs are planning to retain Romeo Crennel and remove interim tag from his title. Move would be popular in the locker room. -- @AdamSchefter

While the Chiefs had also interviewed former Jacksonville Jaguars coach Jack Del Rio and Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin, Crennel had always been the favorite and the Chiefs brass stuck with their guy. As the coach of the Browns, his record was 24-40 and never made the playoffs.
