At that end of our post announcing Charlie Weis’ hire in Kansas City, we mentioned that the next logical step would be hiring Romeo Crennel.
That move may be on its way.
A few prominent NFL voices believe Crennel could indeed be joining Todd Haley’s staff. ESPN’s Adam Schefter writes, “It’s likely to be a New England reunion: Now that Charlie Weis has agreed to work in Kansas City, Romeo Crennel will not be far behind.”
Mark Maske of the Washington Post writes: “Romeo Crennel could be next as defensive coordinator [In Kansas City].”
The Chiefs will have competition for Crennel’s services, though. Crennel’s agent said this week his client would also be interested in the Giants job. Crennel is currently on vacation and won’t be back until Monday.
Michael Smith of ESPN threw out other possibilities on Twitter, like perhaps Buffalo or Miami.
The moral of the story: If the Chiefs want Crennel, they may have to fight for him.
