Romeo Crennel's Chances Pegged At 80-90 Percent

It seems like when a head coach is fired you quickly hear a number of rumors regarding the open coaching position but that hasn't really the case with the Kansas City Chiefs. After Todd Haley was fired, some people floated around Jeff Fisher's name (but he'll inevitably be attached to every job this year). Kirk Ferentz's name was thrown out there, as was Josh McDaniels, but those haven't picked up much steam.

Other than a few connecting-the-dots candidates, we haven't seen a lot of named rumored in connection with the Chiefs job. Maybe that's because we're in the middle season and potential candidates are still under contract by other teams or maybe that's because the favorite to become the next head coach is already on the team.

Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com wrote a story today citing league sources that said Romeo Crennel's chances of landing the full-time gig are "almost a lock." One source pegged the odds at 80-90 percent right now.

I think that's where most Chiefs fans stand right now -- Crennel is the favorite at the moment, but there's still lots of time left. It sounds like a decision won't be made until after the season so any talk until then is just that -- talk.

Freeman also reports the talk around the league is that the Chiefs could bring in a "hot offensive coordinator" for Crennel's staff.

McDaniels is the offensive coordinator choice a lot of folks are predicting but I wouldn't exactly characterize the St. Louis Rams' 32nd ranked offense as "hot".
