Many thought Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli would be fired at the end of the season.
It has been a disasterous season for the Chiefs, as the team has fallen off the tracks with a 2-13 season. They are currently tied with the Jacksonville Jaguars with the 2-13 record.
The Jaguars are currently leading in the second quarter over the Tennessee Titans 14-7. The Chiefs play a 4:25 pm EST game in Denver.
Pioli also saw a nightmare last night, as former Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher killed his self in the Arrowhead parking lot.
But, according to NFL’s Steve Wyche, the Chiefs are going to give Pioli one more season to rebuild the team. If he doesn’t get things turned around next year, he will definitely be fired.
According to Wyche, Clark Hunt has a lot of belief in Pioli. And the Cheifs are expected to pursue Iowa’s Kirk Ferentz once head coach Romeo Crennel is fired tomorrow.
Ferentz, a long-time Iowa head coach, has been a longtime friend of Pioli’s. Ferentz is 112-95 since becoming the Hawkeyes head coach before the 1999 season.
He previously served in the NFL from 1993 to 1998. He was with the Baltimore Ravens from 1996 to 1998 as their offensive line coach. And was the Cleveland Browns offensive line coach from 1993 to 1995.
He is expected to make $3.65 million per year, as the Hawkeyes head coach, through the 2020 season.
Ferentz has been rumored for NFL head coaching jobs since January 2nd, 2006. Yet, he hasn’t left Iowa for the NFL.
