Herm Might Stay?

Oh no--

 

A source with knowledge of the team's thinking told ESPN's Michael Smith it has not been ruled out that Herm Edwards could return for the final year of his contract as coach of theKansas City Chiefs.

Conventional wisdom is that Scott Pioli, who is expected to be introduced as the team's new general manager later Wednesday, will want to hire his own guy, but a source said Pioli is coming in with an open mind.

The fate of Edwards and his staff is expected to be decided by the end of this week.

Owner Clark Hunt, according to sources, prefers that Edwards remain the coach, but Hunt has gone on record as saying the new general manager would make that decision.

As for who would replace Edwards, if the team decides to go in a different direction, a top candidate who has been mentioned is New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo.

Multiple reports also have mentioned Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz, who previously worked with Pioli in Cleveland. But according to a source close to Hunt, the Chiefs owner is opposed to bringing in a college coach -- though, again, that ultimately would be Pioli's decision.
