Report: Romeo Crennel To Be Chiefs Head Coach

It appears we may have a decision on the Kansas City Chiefs head coach. At least according to ESPN. Adam Schefter is reporting that the Chiefs plan to retain Romeo Crennel as the head coach and remove the interim tag title.

Some reports are saying the move could be made official early next week. We shall see.

This is the direction many of us thought the Chiefs would go. Some members of the coaching staff have publicly backed Crennel. Many of the players have as well. Crennel went 2-1 down the stretch and the team seemed to rally around him. I can see how this makes sense.

Crennel has previous experience as a head coach when he spend four seasons as the Cleveland Browns head coach going 24-40 in that span.

Crennel now enters the 2012 season without a defensive coordinator -- that's the position he held before getting the interim tag -- and potentially an opening at offensive coordinator depending on what Bill Muir's future is.

Early thoughts on the move?
