The Jets weren’t the only team to shed a chunk of the work force last week. In addition to the release of 30 employees whose jobs in connection with the sale of tickets to the New Meadowlands Stadium were eliminated, the Chiefs have laid off 11 employees.
Pete Moris, a 17-year employee who most recently served as Associate Director of Public Relations, is the biggest name to be relieved of his duties. The other 10 employees came from various different portions of the football and business operations.
Spotted at the Super Bowl XLV media center, where Moris is one of many team P.R. staffers assisting with the mammoth credentialing and media relations undertaking, Moris was in very good spirits. He spoke favorably of the Chiefs, and he jokingly taped the words “unrestricted free agent” over the Chiefs logo on the shirt he was wearing.
Moris won’t be a free agent for long. We wish him well as he searches for his next NFL destination.
