Herm Edwards Out?
With Scott Pioli joining The KC Chiefs is the end neigh for Herm Edwards?
Our Mark Maske is reporting that Edwards is likely to be fired:
Few people around the league, it seems, expect Scott Pioli, just hired as the general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, to retain Herman Edwards as the team's coach.
"A guy like that comes in to clean house and start over," said an executive with another NFL franchise, speaking on the condition of anonymity because he didn't want to be seen as meddling in the Chiefs' affairs. "I'm almost sure he'll bring in his own coach."
Kirk Ferentz of Iowa and defensive coordinators Steve Spagnuolo of the New York Giants and Jim Schwartz of the Tennessee Titans have been mentioned as possible replacements for Edwards if he's fired by Pioli.
The Chiefs are coming off a 2-14 season but have abundant salary cap space this offseason and possess the third overall choice in the NFL draft in April.
Edwards has a record of 15-34 in three seasons as the Chiefs' coach, including 0-1 in the playoffs. He went 9-7 in his first season with the club in 2006 before losing a first-round playoff game at Indianapolis, then went 4-12 last season.
Carl Peterson, who hired Edwards, resigned as the Chiefs' president and general manager late this season.
