This offseason got off to a roaring start for the Chiefs when they announced that Romeo Crennel was going to be their new head coach, replacing the departed Todd Haley.
By promoting Crennel, Pioli is putting a good amount of trust in the 64-year-old coach to get the job done for this franchise in the near future.
Pioli's also trusting him to continue to build up this young defense, including coaching rookie Poe to his potential at the next level.
That's a ton of trust to put into your new head coach, especially one who failed in his only previous head coaching job in Cleveland.
That being said, Crennel should be more successful leading the Chiefs, considering that he has a loaded roster to work with, and already has earned the respect of many of his players from his three-game stint as the team's interim head coach last year.
