The Kansas City Chiefs have named defensive coordinator Romeo Crennel as the interim head coach, taking the place of the fired Todd Haley.
Crennel was the head coach of the Cleveland Browns for four seasons from 2005-08. He compiled a record of 24-40, with his best finish in 2007 when the Browns were 10-6 and 2nd in the AFC North.
While speculation is already running rampant that people like Josh McDaniels and Kirk Ferentz will be favorites for the job due to their relationship with GM Scott Pioli, it’s not out of the question that Crennel could be considered for the position.
A strong showing over the final three games from a team that very well could mail it in the way they did against the New York Jets will go a long way towards telling us how viable a candidate Crennel really is for next season.
