Scott Pioli is the New GM of the Kansas City Chiefs

Well, it has finally happened: Scott Pioli is the next GM of the Kansas City Chiefs. I hate to say I told you so, but, I told you so.


"New England Patriots vice president of player personnel Scott Pioli has agreed to become head of football operations for the Kansas City Chiefs, two NFL sources told ESPN’s Michael Smith.

Pioli was seen packing up his office Tuesday afternoon, a Patriots source said."

So, that means many things for the Chiefs including that Herm Edwards will most likely be sent packing very soon and that means KC will be looking for a new leader very soon.

"The decision to hire Pioli likely means Herman Edwards will not be back as Chiefs head coach next season. Among the top candidates to succeed Edwards is New York Giants defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo."

This gives me hope. The Chiefs went after and "signed" who most believe to be the best and biggest name GM on the market. If nothing else, this tells me that Clark Hunt is willing to do what it takes to field a winner in KC.

I wish you all the best of luck Scott Pioli. As long as you try your best to field the best team you can you will get a great amount of respect from what I believe to be the loyalest fans in the NFL.

Go Chiefs!
