Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel gives up DC role

By Anthony Caruso III | Publisher

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel has made the decision to focus just on his head coaching job. He will no longer have to focus on two roles.

See, he was serving as head coach, while also serving as the team’s defensive coordinator. Now, Gary Gibbs will take over Crennel’s defensive coordinator duties.

Gibbs is the team’s linebackers coach. Crennel had held this dual role since he took over as interim head coach on Dec. 12, 2011.

Crennel took over as interim head coach when the Chiefs fired former head coach Todd Haley. Under his dual role, the Chiefs are 3-8 in 2012.

“I have decided that I am going to spend more time with the whole team and less with the defense,” Crennel said. “We’re trying to get this thing right and trying to get it turned. We have eight games to play. It’s an eight-game season for us, so we’re going to try and do everything we can to come out these eight games on the winning ledger.”

In addition, the team is also giving up 347.5 yards per game. That’s 17th in the league.
