“The Chiefs were very fair with Romeo and he’s excited to become head coach,” Linta said. “He’s looking forward to building on the resurgence from late last season.”
There really wasn’t a lot of doubt that the Chiefs would keep Crennel in place following the teams end-of-season performance. The victory over the undefeated Packers may have been enough alone as Crennel’s game plan kept Aaron Rodgers and what appeared to be an unstoppable offense of their game for four quarters.
It seemed like the Chiefs would keep Crennel as head coach and bring in Josh McDaniels as offensive corrdinator given that he’s worked with both Kyle Orton, who the Chiefs have said they’re interested in keeping, and Matt Cassel but McDaniels chose to return to New England rather help the Chiefs. Still, it’s a good move for Kansas City as they’ll be able to keep some continuity heading into next season.
