Report: Romeo Crennel Picks Chiefs, Not Giants

New, comments

Vinny DiTrani of NorthJersey.com (online version of The Record and the Boston Herald) is reporting Romeo Crennel will join the Kansas City Chiefs as its defensive coordinator.

Per DiTrani:

Nothing’s official yet, but according to a league source, Romeo Crennel will be joining the coaching staff in Kansas City and not with the Giants. Crennel would be reunited with Charlie Weis and Scott Pioli in KC. The trio had a lot ot do with the success of the Patriots.

Also another team will be firing its DC later today, opening another job and throwing anothert candidate onto the market.

Key words in there are "Nothing's official yet" but it does jive with what Adam Schefter of ESPN has been saying for a couple weeks.

DiTrani has been hot on the Crennel beat over the past week so this is a credible source. Again, not official yet, but we'll let you know as soon as anything more comes.
