He knew that he needed to figure out who the starting QB will be for this team next season and make some changes on his coaching staff as well.
Here are four moves that Crennel will probably make this offseason as the new head man of this football team.
Last season, the Chiefs opted to go with veteran offensive line coach Bill Muir as their offensive coordinator.
The play-calling was questionable for most of the season, and the KC offense struggled to score points in many games.
With reports that Muir is likely to retire this offseason, Romeo Crennel will need to replace him with an adequate play-caller for the offense this season.
Current Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements could be a viable option to take over for the departed Muir in 2012.
In Steve Hoffman's three seasons as special teams coach of the Chiefs, they have yet to make many significant strides in that area of the field.
The return game has scored just two touchdowns during that time and has made K.C. fans everywhere miss former Chiefs great Dante Hall even more.
Hoffman is a likable guy, but it's time for Romeo Crennel to relieve him of his duties and get a fresh, new face in here to take over for him next season.
One could argue that this isn't exactly a change, since Matt Cassel was already the Chiefs' starting QB for most of last season.
However, when the team signed Kyle Orton later in the year, he became the starter for the last three games of the campaign.
Ever since he went 2-1 to end the regular season, there has been a bit of uncertainty as to whether Cassel or Orton will be Kansas City's starter going forward.
It seemed, after Romeo Crennel's first press conference as head coach of the Chiefs, that he and general manager Scott Pioli will likely go with Cassel in 2012.
Last year, one of the biggest mistakes that was made by ex-coach Todd Haley was how he prepared this Chiefs team during training camp.
Haley decided to take a different approach because of the lockout and really slowed down the tempo of practicing during camp.
The end results were disastrous as the Chiefs looked unprepared and slow in their first two games of the season, in which they were blown out in both contests.
This season, things should be much different with a more prepared, organized head coach in Romeo Crennel leading this team.
