Chiefs' Crennel Talks About Haley, Weis Working Together

New, comments

Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel is making the media rounds as he prepares to coach the East squad in the East-West Shrine Game. We already told you about one interview this morning, but Crennel also joined Tom Waddle and Marc Silverman on ESPN Radio 1000 today to talk football.

The conversation was primarily about Crennel's former coordinator, Rob Chudzinski, who may be a candidate in Chicago, but he was also asked about the working relationship between Todd Haley and Charlie Weis.

One of the hosts remembers covering Haley during his days in Chicago and suggested Crennel may need to play referee at times with two strong personalities.

"They're both intense guys at times but they're pros as far as football goes," he said. "You can agree to disagree. I think that will be the case with those two guys - to agree to disagree - but once they walk out of the room, they'll be on the same page.

"This is something I learned a long time ago and I think it still applies today - the head coach might not always be right but he's still the head coach."

I think that's a good attitude to have.

While it's important to have various opinions on players and schemes, there needs to be a clear line of who's in charge. It sounds like Crennel understands that.
