I had a feeling that the loss to the New York Jets was a little different for the Kansas City Chiefs. It felt like one of those losses that could have consequences.
And we were right -- the Chiefs just fired head coach Todd Haley.
The Chiefs website announced it, so this is official. Haley is no longer the head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs.
"This was a difficult decision but one that we feel is best for the future of the Chiefs," Chairman and CEO Clark Hunt said. "Although there have been bright spots at different points this season, we have not made meaningful progress and we felt that it was necessary to make a change. We appreciate Todd's contributions during his time with the club, and we wish him well in the future."
"Todd helped this team in many valuable ways over the past three seasons, and I am thankful for his contributions," Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli said. "Unfortunately, we have not been able to establish the kind of consistency we need to continue to build a strong foundation for the future and we believe a change is important at this time."
Much, much more to come.
