Longtime Kansas City Chiefs President and General Manager Carl Peterson has resigned amid one of the worst seasons in franchise history.
“On behalf of my family and the entire Kansas City Chiefs organization, I want to thank Carl for his two decades of service to the Chiefs,” owner Clark Hunt said in a statement. “Both Carl and I agreed that immediately initiating the search for the next Chiefs General Manager would be the best thing for the future of the organization, and he will be resigning following the 2008 season.”
Peterson has been with the Chiefs since 1989, leading the team to a 176-141-1 record and four AFC West titles
“I am proud of my association with the Kansas City Chiefs and our many accomplishments over the last 20 years,” Peterson said in the team’s statement. “I thank the Hunt family for the opportunity to lead the Chiefs organization and sincerely appreciate all the coaches, players, administrators and Chiefs employees with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working in my time here. Most importantly, I want to thank Chiefs fans around the country for their passionate support through the years. Chiefs fans are the finest in all of professional football.”
Speculation will now begin about whether the next general manager will want to keep head coach Herm Edwards.-profootballtalk.com
