Chiefs fire Herm Edwards

By KENT BABB
The Kansas City Star




DAVID EULITT |The Kansas City Star
Herm Edwards won't be on the Chiefs sidelines as head coach anymore.


The Chiefs have fired coach Herm Edwards after three seasons, the team confirmed Friday afternoon.

The move came 10 days after new general manager Scott Pioli was introduced as Carl Peterson's replacement and a lengthy and mysterious period in which word rarely leaked about Pioli's thinking or the direction the Chiefs might go.

“After careful deliberation over the last week, Scott and I decided that it was in the best interests of the Chiefs to move forward in a different direction," team chairman Clark Hunt said in a statement released by the team. "This was not an easy decision. Herm is an outstanding football coach and a man of integrity. We appreciate his leadership over the past three seasons, and we wish him all the best in the future.”

Three of Edwards' assistants left within the past week, secondary coach David Gibbs to Houston, special teams coach Mike Priefer to Denver and defensive coordinator Gunther Cunningham to Detroit. Edwards was told last week he would not be going to Mobile, Ala., for the annual Senior Bowl, the first formal chance for NFL coaches to scout college prospects.

Edwards was 15-33 in Kansas City, including going 4-12 in 2007 and 2-14 in '08.

I'm surprised it took this long. 

Gotta wonder who they go with.  I would rather have seen Steve Spagnuolo go to a team run by a guy like Pioli than the retards who run the Rams.

The timing is almost a little odd. The Chiefs seemed to play hard under Edwards last year. I think that the GM change sparked the coaching change.

I think Mort on ESPN is reporting Shanahan is close to a deal.

What was he before he became a head coach?  I cannot even remember what he was.  Defensive coordinator?  Was he in Tampa?

he was in tampa before going to the jets as head coach. i'm pretty sure that he was the defensive backs coach there before becoming defensive coordinator after tony dungy left.
