Former Chiefs DC Clancy Pendergast to the Raiders

New, comments

Former Kansas City Chiefs defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast has a new job.

With the Raiders.

Per Adam Schefter of ESPN, Pendergast has accepted a role as the Raiders' defensive backs coach.

Pendergast was the Chiefs coordinator in 2009, a club that didn't improve statistically from 2008. It was fairly clear that the relationship with the Chiefs wasn't long-term because Todd Haley had tried to hire Romeo Crennel in March of 2009 and then eventually did hire him last month.

Pendergast was let go following Crennel's hire. It was described as a "mutual decision" between he and Haley.
