'Disappointed' Romeo Crennel: 'We weren't able to win'

Romeo Crennel, fired on Monday morning, issued a statement acknowledging his team's failures and thanking the Hunt family for the opportunity.


Former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Romeo Crennel issued this statement, via the Chiefs, on Monday afternoon:

"Obviously I'm very disappointed in the way our season went. At the end of the day, the NFL is a performance-based league, and we weren't able to win. I want to thank the Hunt family for the opportunity as well as our players, coaches and fans for their support during my time in Kansas City. As for my future, I'm planning to take some time to reflect on this season, evaluate everything, and make a decision based on what's right for myself and my family."

Crennel was fired on Monday morning.

Not sure if it was intentional but curious that the statement doesn't mention GM Scott PIoli. Todd Haley, of course, left Pioli out of his statement, too.
