KC Star: Scott Pioli was not offered contract extension by Chiefs

The Kansas City Star has reported that GM Scott Pioli has not been offered a contract extension by the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli has reportedly not been offered a contract extension, according to the Kansas City Star. Prior to their game on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, rumors had started to swirl about a possible extension to his contract, which has kept him with the team since 2009.

The original report by CBS had indicated that Pioli had been offered a two-year extension onto the contract, with no deal done yet only because of buyout language. The KC Star's source indicated that there was no such deal in place.

Team chairman Clark Hunt has declined to speak on the subject.

It would make sense to keep extension talks out of the question for Pioli during what is one of the most disappointing seasons for the Chiefs of all time. The team has gone 1-5 so far in 2012 and has not yet held a lead during a game, nabbing their only win on a overtime field goal in Week 3 against the Saints.
