5 Viable Candidates for Kansas City Chiefs' Head Coaching Job

The Kansas City Chiefs fired Todd Haley on Monday, and in doing so, opened the floodgates of speculation for who will be the next head coach in Arrowhead Stadium.

Nearly every available coach's name popped up this week as a potential fit for Kansas City. The "duh, big red truck" (i.e. it's obvious, like a big red truck that's about to run you over) possibilities like Romeo Crennel popped up quickly.

A couple "retired" options like Bill Cowher, Brian Billick, Jon Gruden or Jeff Fisher quickly joined the list, despite Cowher's apparent reluctance to become a coach again or Gruden's recent contract extension with ESPN.

The prospect of expanding the Bill Belichick/New England coaching tree came up again with Josh McDaniels, though this writer's impression from Michael Holley's book War Room leads me to believe too little comfort exists between Scott Pioli and McDaniels for Pioli to choose a head coach with so little NFL experience the second time around.
