Report: Chiefs Fire DL Coach Tim Krumrie; Pendergast Staying?

New, comments

Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network is reporting that the Kansas City Chiefs have parted ways with defensive line coach Tim Krumrie.

Krumrie was one of the few coaching holdovers from the Herm Edwards/Carl Peterson regime. As we've noted before, the Chiefs defensive line, while young, did have a poor performance in 2009. The starting defensive line didn't record a sack until the final game of the season.

LaCanfora also reports that current defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast is telling folks around the league that he's safe for now.

Krumrie appears to be the only change on the defense at this point, according to league sources, with coordinator Clancy Pendergast not told he was being let go. With the team already firing position coaches, it would be very unusual for a move involving a coordinator to come later, and Pendergast has informed some around the league that he is safe.

Much more to come shortly...
