It's official: Bill Muir is retiring.

After reports that he would retire, and then after him coming out and say he wasn't retiring, Muir has decided to hang 'em up.

The Kansas City Chiefs have officially confirmed the news via a press release at their website in which GM Scott Pioli and head coach Romeo Crennel are quoted. Here's what they had to say:

Muir: "It has been an honor to be a part of this great league for so long. Over the years I've made a lot of great friends and worked with many talented players and coaches. This was a personal decision for me, the timing was right. The Chiefs are in great hands with Romeo and Scott and I wish them nothing but the best."

Crennel: "I am excited for Bill as he moves into retirement. I have known him for a long time and he is one of the finest coaches I've ever been around and an even better person. Bill is a very good friend and I have a great deal of respect for the way he worked. It was a privilege to work alongside him."

Pioli: "I have a tremendous amount of respect for Bill. I have worked with him for a long time and have witnessed him develop a number of very good football players. His contributions are very much appreciated and he will be missed. We wish him the best moving forward."
