Chiefs Say Nick Wright's Report On Todd Haley Is '100 Percent False'

New, comments

As many of you have heard by now, 610 Sports' Nick Wright reported on Thursday afternoon that Kansas City Chiefs GM Scott Pioli was prepared to fire head coach Todd Haley if the Chiefs had lost to the Indianapolis Colts. Wright cited multiple sources within the Chiefs organization for the story.

The person responsible for making that decision is saying the story is false.

More accurately, "100 percent false."

Chiefs GM Scott Pioli went on the record with me for a couple minutes this afternoon and I asked him if Nick Wright's report that he was prepared to fire Haley last week was accurate. Pioli said it was "100 percent false" and strongly refuted the report.

I asked if there were ever any discussions about firing Haley leading up to the Colts game and, again, he said there was no truth to that.
