Report: Chiefs offer Pioli a contract extension


Chiefs fans might not be fond of Scott Pioli at the moment, but the guy who signs his checks still is.

Jason LaCanfora of reports that Chiefs owner Clark Hunt has offered his general manager a two-year contract extension, but Pioli has yet to sign it.

They are apparently still discussing the buyout language in the deal, which is the reason it hasn’t been signed yet.

Pioli arrived in 2009, and the Chiefs doubled their win total (from two to four). The big jump came with a 10-6 record and playoff berth in 2010, but things have sagged since then, with hand-picked coach Todd Haley fired and hand-picked quarterback Matt Cassel plateauing.

They’re 8-13 since the end of the 2010 season.

Neither Pioli nor Hunt commented on the report.
