Chiefs Press Conference Coming Today: Hello, Romeo Crennel

The Kansas City Chiefs are about to make it official: Romeo Crennel is the new head coach.

We're told the Chiefs have a press conference scheduled for 1:00 p.m. (Arrowhead Time) today and at that press conference they are expected to name Crennel the full-time head coach.

The Chiefs haven't officially confirmed anything on Crennel's status yet but Adam Caplan cites Crennel's agent in reporting that the two sides have agreed to a three-year deal to make him the new head coach. Caplan has some quotes from Crennel's agent here.

So, in the end, it's Crennel, as we suspected for quite some time. The Chiefs were connected to a few candidates throughout the coaching search, including free agent coach Jeff Fisher and Green Bay Packers OC Joe Philbin, who were both interviewed for the job.

In just a few more hours, we'll have our head coach.
