Chiefs Defensive Coaching Staff Expected To Remain Mostly Intact

Anytime a new head coach comes onto a team there are usually some coaching staff changes that take place but that may not be the case with the Kansas City Chiefs -- at least on defense. Romeo Crennel indicated this week on Sirius XM NFL Radio that he will continue to call the defensive plays and that there are not expected to be a lot of changes to the defensive staff.

"I'll tell you what," Crennel told Adam Schein and Rich Gannon, "the last three games I remained the defensive coordinator and it worked pretty good. I do like the defensive staff that I have working with me. I have guys like [defensive backs coach] Emmitt Thomas, [linebackers coach] Gary Gibbs, [quality control assistant] Otis Smith, [defensive line coach] Anthony Pleasant and [assistant linebackers coach] Adam Zimmer.

"We work very well together so I think that's a pretty good combination and I'll probably keep that going forward to see if we can continue to make it work."

There could be some other changes here and there but it sounds like the defensive staff will remain intact for the most part.

I do wonder, however, if anyone will receive a new title....like defensive coordinator.
