Courtesy of the Kansas City Star's Red Zone blog and Adam Teicher, we have a full statement from now former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Todd Haley on his firing.

There isn't anything shocking here. Just Todd Haley going out with politeness and class. One note - he doesn't appear to mention Scott Pioli's name. Here is is his statement, released via his agent:

"First, I would like to thank Clark Hunt and the Kansas City Chiefs for giving me the opportunity to coach this historic franchise. Growing up in the NFL, watching my Dad help build those great Pittsburgh Steeler teams, I have a profound love for this league. This opportunity has been a dream come true.

Rest of the statement is after the jump.

"I would like to sincerely thank my coaches and my players for their commitment and loyalty throughout my time with the Chiefs.

"I would like to thank all of the great Chiefs fans. My wife, Chrissy, and I would also like to thank the city of Kansas City for welcoming us and our five children and making us feel at home.

"I am proud to have been a part of continued improvement and the first AFC West title since 2003. This year has been extremely challenging, but despite losing several key players to injury and free agency, we have been able to remain competitive and remain in contention with three games remaining in the season. I wish the coaches and players good luck down the stretch.

"NFL football is extremely competitive. Being hired and fired is part of this business. I want to thank everyone for their support and I look forward to my next opportunity in this great league."
