The agent for "free agent" defensive coordinator candidate and former head coach of the Cleveland Browns says he will not be a member of the Kansas City Chiefs coaching staff in 2009. 

Agent Joe Linta said Crennel would rather focus on rehabilitating his hip after surgery.

"That is not going to happen at this time," said Linta of Crennel joining the Chiefs. "Coach is focusing on his rehabilitation and then he will entertain opportunities in both football and in the media. He is looking forward to what lies ahead."

Bill Williamson of ESPN reports that Linta "didn't rule out the possibility of Crennel speaking to the Chiefs about a consulting role or coaching role down the road."

I'm assuming down the road means after 2009.

While I wanted Romeo Crennel, I'm now ready to hire someone, anyone as defensive coordinator.  Now that Crennel is out of the picture, I imagine that head coach Todd Haley will name Gary Gibbs or Clancy Pendergast the new defensive coordinator sometime soon. Like Friday. After 4PM.
