I would bet on this being a false rumor. The timing would be strange too
It's BS...Not buying this for one second. Once a credible source says the same, I'll buy it. Until then, I don't think this has any truth to it.
On ESPN this morning, Billick said that he can't be communicating with any of the 3 teams needing coaches until the end of regular season. But that he's very interested in the Miami job. So this report would make no sense. They can't sign Fisher, or anyone, or make official contact and negotiations until the end of regular season. So far SBnation is 1 and 4 in Chiefs personnel stories. I take it with a grain of salt.
That makes sense as he is working for a network.
FWIW, I am really hoping we retain Crennel as HC.
I'm thinking Crennel for HC next year too.
A BIG reason I don't like the idea of Fischer for HC is that he is a defensive minded head coach (and traditionally runs a 4-3).
If we plan to retain Crennel and Fischer comes in, we now would be back tracking because Fischer may want to implement a 4-3 Defensive system, and we would have to rework the D once again.
I like the idea of Crennel Becoming the HC and D coordinator, and targeting a proven OC that could get our Offense going.
If we really do want to add a new HC I really think he needs to be an Offensive minded HC so our D can continue it's success with Crennel's current system.
Don't think this is true. I don't really see them moving that fast to name anyone Head coach. And less likely after the job Romeo did yesterday. I think this is just anther rumor. Fisher might be brought in at some point but I don't think it's anywhere close to a done deal.
