A Lot Of People Like The Chiefs New Hire

New, comments

The Chiefs on Monday Friday announced the addition of Ted Crews as the new VP of communications. He's coming from the St. Louis Rams, where he spent three years as the Senior Director of Communications. He has also worked for a pair of NFC South teams in the Atlanta Falcons and Carolina Panthers.

Since Ted doesn't play quarterback or right tackle I know some of you won't care about this news but I did find it interesting to see all the media folks praising the move by the Chiefs.

Albert Breer, NFL Network: Very happy for my good friend Ted Crews, who's leaving the Rams to take over as Chiefs VP of Communications. Great hire by KC.

Peter King, Sports Illustrated: Congrats, Ted Crews

Jason La Canfora, NFL Network: Excited to hear that Ted Crews, one of the best young PR men in the league, was named the Chiefs VP of Communications. Congrats Ted!

Darin Gantt, former Panthers reporter: Ted's one of the very best.

Jim Corbett, USA Today: Kudos to Ted Crews, announced as new KC Chiefs VP of communications, class act who will do great job after great tenure in St. Louis w Rams.

Alex Marvez, FOX Sports: Great PR move by the #Chiefs in hiring @ramstcrews as new media relations director. He should help fix some of the current image problems

Jim Trotter, Sports Illustrated: Congrats to Ted Crews on being hired as a VP of communications/PR with the Chiefs. #excellenthire

Of course, with the reports concerning the Chiefs that have come out lately, you're also gonna get some of these via Twitter: "You meant Head of Miscommunication"

Overall, though, it sounds like a win-win. Crews gets a promotion (now I wanna be a VP of something, too) and the Chiefs get a guy that is very well-liked by his peers.

Here are some quotes from Crews and GM Scott Pioli from the Chiefs website.
