Chiefs Offensive/Defensive Coordinator Update: There Is No Update

The Kansas City Chiefs officially introduced Romeo Crennel as the new head coach at a Monday afternoon press conference attended by Crennel, owner Clark Hunt and GM Scott Pioli. The guys had their introductory comments and then got into the Q&A session, which was highlighted by some coordinator and quarterback talk.

We'll start with the coordinator talk.

Offensive coordinator: "I don't know who it's going to be." That's your update. Exciting, right? So I'm not sure what Bill Muir's role will be if he doesn't retire, as NFL Network has reported he is likely to do. Crennel said that the OC position could be filled from inside or outside the building (as opposed to underneath) but no decision had been made.

Defensive coordinator: There's been a report that Chiefs linebackers coach Gary Gibbs could be promoted to DC but Crennel did not comment on that. He said the search for a defensive coordinator continues and, interestingly, he didn't rule himself out as the coordinator. The idea of Crennel sticking as the defensive coordinator is really the only bit of news we have in this one.

So the big update is....there is no update. (To be fair, we didn't expect a big update.) We're not any closer to finding the next coordinators for the Chiefs.
