When the Chiefs take the field next year they will reportedly have two new coordinators calling the shots.
The NFL Network’s Jason LaConfora called Kansas City a “likely landing spot” for former Notre Dame head coach and New England Patriots offensiive coordinator Charlie Weis.
Meanwhile, there is a growing feedling that former Cleveland Browns head coach and Patriots defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel will run the Kansas City defense.
Kansas City wanted to hire the former Cleveland Browns head coach as its defensive coordinator last offseason, but his hip surgery made it too challenging for him to do the job right.
Now that Crennel is healed from his hip surgery and itching to return, he is likely to join Kansas City’s coaching staff this offseason.
Clancy Pendergast is the current defensive coordinator for the Chiefs.
Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli worked with Crennel in New England, and Kansas City is looking for ways to upgrade its defense.
Hiring Crennel would be one of the first steps the Chiefs would take in their defensive makeover.
I love bringing Crennel in to try and take the 3-4 defense to the next level for the Chiefs. I’m sure Pendergast is a good guy, but he isn’t the right man for the job.
Weis is a guy I would be more worried about. Todd Haley needs an offensive coordinator to help him concentrate more on other facets of teh game, but I dont’ think he is ready to give away play-calling duties. And there is no way Weis is taking any job unless he has total control over the offense.
Bring in Vince Wilfork and the Kansas City Patriots will nearly be complete.
