I personally believe that Romeo Crennel will be fired as the Chiefs HC. If this is true, then when that firing is announced will give us an indication on Scott Pioli's situation.
I gave my reasons in another post, Mysteries Surrounding the Chiefs and What Clark Needs to Do, for why I think both Pioli and Crennel will be fired quietly. Some of you think that's bs and some of you don't. Regardless, here's how I see it:
If Romeo's firing is announced before the end of the season it means that Pioli is staying.
If Romeo's firing is not announced before the end of the season it means that Pioli is going too.
