This is what happens when the Kansas City Chiefs thoroughly dominate you: The offensive coordinator gets fired.

Hey, someone has to take the fall and it sure as heck won't be the head coach.

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports that former Chiefs coach and now former 49ers offensive coordinator Jimmy Raye has been relieved of his duties in San Francisco.

After the Chiefs game, I posted a story titled, "San Francisco Meltdown" because it seemed that everyone in San Fran was up in arms after what took place at Arrowhead Stadium on Sunday.

This quote from David Fucillo of Niners Nation on Sunday seemed to be a hint of what was to come:

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if somebody was on the chopping block after this week, with Jimmy Raye being the leading candidate. I'm not one to normally jump on the "Fire ____!" bandwagon, but what else would you do at this point?

And then this after the game....

Mike Singletary said he would have to make "some hard decisions" after a 31-10 loss to Kansas City on Sunday, but offensive coordinator won't be one of them. Asked if Jimmy Raye will be the offensive coordinator for the rest of the year, Singletary said, "Yes. Yes."

And now Raye is reportedly gone.
