They are now reporting that our head coach and his two coordinators did not make the trip up to the senior bowl with Pioli and the scouts. This is an obvious sign of what's to come. Gun and Gailey are both interviewing for other jobs, which may excuse their absence but nobody can justify Herm not being there. The signs are obvious: Pioli is cleaning house. Say your goodbyes, everyone.

Does Stoops have a chance?
Or Pittsburg OC Bruce Arians? He has ties here...

Bike do you think we will go with a college coach? I hope not, it doesn't seem to work out very good.

Why not? Hell, Bill Parcels coached on 6 college teams before coaching in the NFL...

I think Pioli has already firmed up his choice and Herm and his assistants have been notified that they won't be needed next season. I'm assuming it's a coach on a playoff team and that's why the Chiefs are waiting to formally announce. I never thought for a minute they would keep Herm with Pioli coming in. Talk about disappointing your fan base if they did.

Doesn't mean Herm shouldn't go. Maybe he can find a job.

Gawd this is pathetic. Everybody in this town (Columbus) has on a F'n Pittsburg hat, coat, towel, whatever, and I sit here with the only encouragement being I hope our douchbag coach gets fired. Oh, wait. I have booze, may be able to pull this evening out yet.

This HAS to be a good sign. Why on earth would our core coaching staff not go to the premier evaluation event of the pre-draft season?

My hopefull theory is that the Chiefs organization is sensitive to the fact that we have a minority head coach, and it may not be the best move to fire him on MLK day or the day we swear in our nation's first minority president.

I think tomorrow may be a good day...

Wouldn't be surprised to see a Shanahan announcement.

... like I said, my hopefull theory.

Aside from my general, overall dislike for Shanarat I must admit he would be better then Herm; of course, that ain't really sayin much.

Actually they can interview coaches during the media week (this week) before the superbowl. The problem is that you cannot formally request to interview someone unless you announce you are firing the current guy.

I dont know much about Todd Haley, other than the fact that he is an OC and has Kurt Warner, Larry Fitzgerald AND Anquan Boldin to strategize around. I personally want a Defensive coach. I want someone to bring us back to the days of DT and Neil Smith giving QBs and OCs nightmares the week leading up to our games. Those were the good ole days.

You've never seen days like the ones that you are about to see Jap. Pioli buils long term and doesnt stop. Hunt just bought himself a dynasty.

i would love to have a presence like Mike Tomlin as head coach....

or Whisenhunt for that matter too, i think he connects with his players in the locker room...but Tomlin on the field is just a total bad a55..i would love to see someone like that in KC

The Broncos almost hired someone like that in Raheem Morris, but when they didn't he ended up getting a double promotion from DB coach to HC for the Bucs, since Kiffin left and Gruden was fired.

Haha, as Chiefs' fans, our head coach requirements should just say: opposite of Herm Edwards

If that's the case, then Pioli should pull the trigger and get it over with and begin the search for a new HC. If he waits too long all the prime canidates will be gone. :D

I think he has someone all lined up. I think it's going to be Haley from the Cards. He can't announce it until the Superbowl is over. So in the meantime Herm sits and his assistants flee to other teams.

If this is true, it is unfair to hermie, and his coaches. If you are going to make a change, then do it, or announce it, but we do not know what the plan is, we sit in limbo wondering.:11:

Well, Herm's coaches are jumping ship like it's the Titanic. They all know the end is here. We've had to endure three gut wrenching seasons of Herm Edwards football, so if he has to squirm for a week or two...OH WELL! He knows damn well he will not be a head coach in the NFL again. So whether he gets fired today or two weeks ago, no one was going to offer him a head coaching gig. Not with a career record of 54-74. He had his two chances at the big time and he blew it both times.

Precisely. If he wanted to quiet the noise, he would just come out and say Herm is my coach for 2009. But he hasn't and he won't because Herm isn't.
