Scott Pioli, Kansas City Chiefs Agree To Terms

Dumont WalkerSenior Analyst IJanuary 13, 2009

Rumors circulated, but it appears a done deal now. Scott Pioli has signed with the Kansas City Chiefs as their new general manager. Pioli leaves New England, where along with coach Bill Belichick, were responsible for building the Patriots empire.

According to close Chiefs sources, this is a done deal. While final figures are unknown, a formal announcement from the Chiefs is expected soon. Most likely, Scott Pioli's first order of business would be to fire head coach Herm Edwards. While there are rumors about Edward's replacement, Pioli has not named any potential candidates for the job.

On another interesting note, the New England Patriots have lost their offensive coordinator and general manager in the last week. All of this comes on the heels of losing star quarterback Tom Brady to injury. If the Patriots dynasty was ever in danger, it would be right now.
