Amid reports that former Browns coach Romeo Crennel will become the next defensive coordinator of the Chiefs, Crennel’s agent says that the job has not yet been offered to Crennel.
“Would he take it if they offered the job?” agent Joe Linta told the Kansas City Star. “I suppose he would.”
Linta told the Star that Crennel has discussed the position with Chiefs coach Todd Haley. Linta also said that the Chiefs get the “first shot,” and that four other teams are interested in Crennel.
The Dolphins also could be interested, which would pit Chiefs G.M. Scott Pioli against his father-in-law, Miami V.P. of football operations Bill Parcells.
Regardless of how it all works out, putting public pressure on the Chiefs likely isn’t an ideal strategy. Unless Linta’s ultimate objective is to place Crennel elsewhere.
